Product Description

Vitamins K2 + D3 are more biologically available forms of Vitamins D and K.  Thee vitamins, normally associated with increased calcium absorption and bone health, also have research indicating they provide neurological support, by protecting against glutamate excitoxicity.*

D3, which is active form of Vitamin D that our body manufactures through sunlight tanning our skin, has been shown in a study to be neuroprotective when neurons are exposed excessive levels of glutamates, resulting in reduced neuronal cell death. (1)*

Vitamin K2 reduces levels of glutamates by converting glutamates to forms used in other metabolic processes in the body, reducing oxidative stress that contributes to neuronal death.  (2)  K2 inhibits glutathione depletion-mediated oxidative stress in the developing brains of infants and chldren.
