There are many dietary supplements that you may take for just about anything. The one that sticks out is vitamin D. However, there could be risks.

Vitamin D helps with strong bones and may help prevent some cancers. But some sources claim that supplementing with vitamin D is harmful if you are low in vitamin K.

If you choose to supplement with vitamin D, you also need to consume in your food, or take in supplement form, vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 works together with Vitamin D3 to support healthy bones, says Dr. John Tsagaris – an expert in Chinese medicines.

The doctor recommends taking vitamin D with vitamin K2 if you are supplementing. 

As your already know Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and increases calcium levels in the body.

Vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 ensure that calcium is absorbed easily and reaches the bone mass, while preventing arterial calcification. Helping to keep your heart and bones healthy.

Combining vitamin D3 and K2 is the best way to absorb the nutrient correctly, as both vitamins have a synergetic effect

said Dr Tsagaris as cited by Express.

He further added:

Both vitamins are fat-soluble and work together to metabolise calcium in your body by activating helpful proteins.

While vitamin D3 improves your calcium absorption, vitamin K2 allocates where that calcium can be used.

Vitamin D is beneficial in bone density issues or menopause, and even depression.

Vitamin K2 promotes strengthening of the bones and at the same time prevents calcification of soft tissues such as vessels and organs.
