NOW Foods Vitamin D-3 & K-2 helps prevent dental carries, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and atherosclerosis. Both vitamins have antioxidant properties to counteract the effects of free radicals into the body. In children, Vitamin D3 is used as treatment and prevention for rickets. Its beneficial effects are also implicated in osteogenesis imperfect (brittle bone disease) in which bones are soft and very prone to fracture. Vitamin K2 is known for supporting normal blood clotting and preventing bleeding. Also, it avoids calcium build up in the blood vessels and soft tissues. A clinical study on Vitamin K2 yielded that it can decrease the occurrence of coronary heart disease by almost 50%. The same study also suggests that it can reduce aortic calcification by 30-40%.

Vitamin D or cholecalciferol is the vitamin obtained from sun exposure. To get the required amount of this vitamin, the arms, face, legs, and hands must be exposed to sunlight at least two times a week. The time of exposure differs however based on age, season, time of the day, and skin type. Although its source is very accessible, Vitamin D deficiency has been linked in 60-70% of death in high-income countries. Because it is a fat soluble vitamin, extra amounts of it can be stored in adipose tissues. Vitamin K or menaquinone is naturally produced in the intestines and can also be found in chicken meat, fishes, dairy products, and the Japanese cheese Natto. The body cant store Vitamin K2 so if in case the intestine does is not able to supply the its required amount, it must be continually acquired from the diet and supplements. In fact Vitamin D3 & K2 supplements are renowned in the health market because of the buzz created by newly discovered health benefits from these two important vitamins. Recently, cholecalciferol and menaquinone have shown to support insulin action and glucose metabolism.
