Gestures, postures and movements!
These actions are all supported by our bones. It may not sound like a big deal, but bones give us mobility. Our bones are made up of living cells and like all other cells that we have, they need to be constantly repaired. Our body works hard to replace old and broken bones with new and healthy ones.
This process is known as bone remodeling. It has been estimated that every 7 to 10 years, we get a new set of bones. Bone remodeling is a metabolic process that involves growth factors, hormones, and enzymes for bone development that replaces older bones with stronger bones in order to maintain the strength of the bone and mineral balance.
Calcium - Building Blocks For Bone
Calcium is an important nutrient necessary for cellular function, most often associated with healthy bones and teeth. It also plays an important role in blood clotting, helping muscles to contract, and regulating normal heart rhythms and nerve functions. About 99% of the body’s calcium is stored in bones, and the remaining 1% is found in blood, muscle, and other tissues.
Women ages 18 to 50, and men ages 18 to 70, need 1,000 milligrams (mg) of calcium daily. The amount increases to 1,200 mg per day for women over the age of 50 and men over the age of 71. This equals two servings of calcium-rich foods, such as dairy or foods and beverages fortified with calcium.
The amount of calcium consumed daily helps to form most of our bone mass to prevent bone loss, but it also needs support from Vitamin D3 for calcium absorption into the bloodstream, and Vitamin K2 to activate proteins that direct calcium into our skeleton.
Vitamin K2 - Promotes Bone Health & Prevents Coronary Heart Diseases
The two key proteins in Vitamin K2 function to build healthy bones and keep our arteries clean.
Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin found to complete calcium regulation in the body. It ensures calcium actually enters into the bones and teeth. This helps to prevent bone fractures and osteoporosis. It effectively promotes bone health and prevents coronary heart diseases.
Studies have shown that just 45mcg of daily Vitamode K2 intake is sufficient to deliver bone and cardiovascular benefits yet in our normal everyday diet, we need to consume unreasonably large amounts of certain foods to reach
that minimum amount. Therefore, supplementation with additional Vitamin K2 is recommended by experts.
Osteocalcin deposits calcium into the bones while MGP prevents calcium from accumulating in arteries.
It contains two building proteins known as Osteocalcin and Matrix-GLA Protein (MGP). Both proteins are Vitamin K-dependent that would require Vitamin K2 to activate both proteins to become biologically active. Actived Osterocalcin binds to calcium and deposits calcium into the bones and teeth. While Activated MGP ensures calcium doesn't accumulate and deposit in arteries and soft tissues.
Without adequate Vitamin K2, said proteins are inactive and do not work, which will cause calcium to accumulate and deposits into blood vessels causing the hardening of blood vessels. This leads to blood flow impairment and various heart complications. It takes years to build strong bones and vice versa, it also takes years for the skeleton to be brittle and porous if there is insufficient bone-building material or an inefficient bone regulation process.
However, when you have adequate Vitamin K2 intake, both Matrix Protein GLA (MPG) and Osteocalcin are being activated to perfectly synergise the actions of catch and insert free floating calcium out of your arteries, directly into your bones.
And if you are looking for the best Vitamin K2, look for supplements containing MenaQ7. A clinically proven Vitamin K2 that helps to keep calcium in your bones and teeth, and out of your arteries.
Vitamode® CalciVit D3 Plus K2 Tablet is a fat-soluble vitamin found to complete calcium regulation in the body. It ensures calcium actually enters into the bones and teeth. Modern diet lacks an adequate amount of the natural, bioactive Vitamin K2.
