ADK is a potent mix of vitamins that have been carefully selected for their shared ability to optimize bone density, promote healthy cardiovascular function, and support proper immune function. Consisting of vitamins A, D3 and K2, this powerful nutraceutical blend can help enhance overall health, because these three vitamins actually work better together than they do on their own.
Vitamin A plays a critical role in the healthy development and growth of bones. Since the body does not produce vitamin A naturally, this essential nutrient has to be provided through supplementation or certain foods that include dairy products, spinach, carrots, and cantaloupe. Aside from its bone-building properties, vitamin A is known to support healthy skin, immune function, and eyesight.
Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) is a highly absorbable and bioavailable form of vitamin K2, an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal bone density and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. This essential nutrient activates osteocalcin and binds it to calcium, which strengthens the bones. Vitamin K2 also removes calcium from the bloodstream, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that the body produces naturally after being exposed to the sun, earning the nickname “sunshine vitamin”. Vitamin D has long been recognized for its ability to support bone growth and remodeling by helping the body absorb calcium, but it is also known to promote healthy cardiovascular, immune, and cognitive function.
This combination of vitamins A, D3, and K2 promotes the optimal development, growth, and repair of bones. ADK from EVEXIAS Medical Centers is available in two strengths: ADK 5 and ADK 10
When thinking about the most important vitamins and minerals for bone health, most people immediately think of calcium. The vital role of calcium in maintaining healthy bones is common knowledge, but supporting proper bone health with calcium is not as simple as just drinking a glass of milk or eating a cup of yogurt every morning. Rather, it takes a network of essential nutrients to help the body absorb and utilize calcium properly. Vitamins A, D3 and K2, in particular, all interact with calcium in ways that best use it to maintain strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Calcium is critically needed by the body’s skeletal system not only for the formation of bone, but for the development and remodeling of bone as well. Since the body does not produce it naturally, calcium is classified as an essential nutrient. However, ingestion of calcium alone is not enough for the body to get the most out of this essential nutrient. That’s where crucial vitamins like A, D3 and K2 come into play. The human body cannot even absorb calcium without vitamin D, another essential nutrient that the body can produce after being exposed to sunlight, earning it the nickname “sunshine vitamin”. Vitamin D can also be found in a wide variety of foods, including beef liver, milk, salmon, mackerel, halibut, trout, cod liver oil, and cereal.
Whether it is introduced to the body through exposure to sunlight, food, or the use of professional grade nutraceuticals, vitamin D absorbs calcium so that the body can use it for a number of critical processes that include:
The cohesive relationship between essential nutrients like vitamins A, D and K highlights the importance of their role in regulating calcium so that the body can best use it. Yet, this is just one of many similar relationships between different nutrients working together to optimize a number of bodily functions. Fortunately, essential nutrients can be provided to the body through a balanced diet, but getting all of the various foods necessary to supply the body with enough of these essential nutrients is easier said than done. This is where professional grade nutraceuticals, like ADK from EVEXIAS Medical Centers, can help pick up the slack. Made with only the highest quality ingredients, these potent nutraceuticals have been expertly developed to help optimize whole body health from the root level.
