Calcium supplements are among the most commonly used natural health products for a very good reason. They have proven benefits to improve bone density and prevent osteoporosis and hypertension, and even help with PMS.
However, most calcium supplements provide an unbalanced formula, and even omit a key vitamin needed for proper calcium utilization. There are vitamin K-dependent proteins in the bones and in the soft tissues, like the arteries. When these proteins are activated in the presence of vitamin K, they can do their job with respect to calcium metabolism. Osteocalcin is the protein produced in the bones. When it's activated by vitamin K, it pulls calcium into the bones. MGP (Matrix Gla Protein) is the protein for the arteries. When it's activated by vitamin K, it prevents calcium from being deposited into the arteries. In simple terms, vitamin K tells your body where to put all that good calcium.
Without enough vitamin K, your body will just throw calcium all over the place. When calcium is deposited in the arteries, it is called "arterial calcification”. Arterial calcification is now seen as the greatest predictor of a heart attack and stroke (more than cholesterol levels, blood pressure, etc.) and it is related to vitamin K deficiency. For this reason, it's crucial for everyone taking calcium supplements to also take vitamin K2. With the addition of this one essential nutrient, you ensure you're getting the most benefit from your calcium supplements while preventing any potential negative side-effects.
For years, Canadians have been turning to Inno-Vite, making Inno-Cal-Mag one of Canada’s favourite calcium supplements. Canadians have also relied on Inno-Vite to provide the highest quality, and “cleanest” vitamin K2 supplements that don’t contain anti-foaming chemicals. INNO-CAL-MAG with Vitamin K2 now offers a convenient way to ensure you get the maximum benefits from your calcium supplement.
