Have you ever wondered why some people can eat all they want and not get fat, while others are constantly battling extra pounds? Could the answer have to do with vitamin D and calcium status ?
This question is the subject of vast research.
Researchers are looking for a link between Vitamin D deficiency and obesity. Vitamin D has recently been shown to lower leptin secretion. Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells and is involved in weight regulation. It is thought that the hormone signals the brain when fat cells are "full," but exactly how the hormone controls weight is not entirely clear.
Additionally, obesity by itself probably further worsens vitamin D deficiency due to the decreased bioavailability of vitamin D from skin and dietary sources, because of its being deposited in body fat.
Orlistat, a medication used for weight loss and olestra, a substance added to certain food products, are both intended to bind to fat and prevent the absorption of fat and the associated calories. Because of their effects on fat, orlistat and olestra may also prevent the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D.
Given this concern and possibility, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires that vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins (namely, A, E, and K) be added to food products containing olestra. Furthermore, physicians who prescribe orlistat typically add a multivitamin with fat soluble vitamins to the regimen.
1 capsule per day
(or as directed by your physician)
While many Vitamin D3 products come in a 60 count bottle, each bottle of Dmax contains 250 capsules. Based on the single bottle price ($22.95), the cost of D Max is less than $2.75 per month. (even less when buying larger quantities)
Vitamin D3 stimulates the production of Vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDP's) such as Osteocalcin (OC) and Matrix gla protein (MGP). These VKDP are critical in shuttling calcium from where it should NOT be (heart valves, arterial linings and kidneys) to where it SHOULD be (bones and teeth). VKDP's can only carry-out this vital function if they have been activated by Vitamin K2.
Everyone should take Vitamin K2, but if you take Vitamin D3, you especially need Vitamin K2 to meet the increased demand that Vitamin D3 stimulates.
Unlike most Vitamin K formulas, Ultra K provides a whopping amount of both MK-4 AND MK-7. The amounts provided are not only generous (5mg of MK-4 AND 100mcg of MK-7), but are also pharmaceutical grade (MK-4 is 99% trans form, MK-7 is 70% trans form) and European sourced (NOT from China).
As can be seen (in the photo below), vK2 is yellow.
If the vitamin K2 you take is NOT yellow . . .
