NUTRITIONAL SYNERGY TO SUPPORT BONE AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
The human body is composed of an intricate array of components and nutrients supporting each other to ensure total body health. In other words, when one function of the body isn’t optimized – take calcium absorption for example – multiple systems in the body can be affected.
WHAT IS ADK?
ADK is a balanced formulation of nutrients – vitamins A, D3 and K2 – that work together to maximize bone building, calcium optimization and cardiovascular health. As the saying goes: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
In the case of ADK, each vitamin provides a number of health benefits that are enhanced when they work in conjunction with the other vitamins in the formula.
WHAT BENEFITS DO VITAMINS A, D3 AND K2 OFFER?
Supports the rejuvenation of healthy bones and ensures bone density
Through the years, our bodies go through the ongoing process of bone remodeling, where old, weak bone tissue is replaced by healthy, new bone tissue. Appropriate levels of Vitamin A are necessary to support bone remodeling and the creation, growth and maintenance of strong, healthy bones.
Vitamin A also helps stimulate bone building cells to release special proteins our bodies need to prompt bone mineralization. In addition, Vitamin A plays an integral role in supporting healthy immune and reproductive systems, while reducing the risk for certain eye diseases and conditions.

Aids calcium absorption to support bone and cardiovascular health
Known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D3 is famously touted for warding off osteoporosis and rickets. A fat-soluble vitamin, D3 supports the absorption of calcium in the stomach, while ensuring adequate levels of calcium and phosphate are maintained in the blood.
Through this process, D3 works hand in hand with vitamin A to support bone remodeling and mineralization.
Guides calcium to the bones and away from blood vessels
Vitamin K2 deficiency has been associated with a host of health conditions including: diabetes, dental issues, certain cancers, osteoporosis, atherosclerosis and more. In recent years, researchers have redefined cardiovascular disease as an illness of nutritional deficiency – primarily a deficiency of K2.
K2 works as a guide of sorts to keep calcium away from the cardiovascular system where it could do harm and direct it toward bones and teeth where it can do good. The other benefit of K2 is that it doesn’t affect blood clotting like Vitamin K1, which is found in green, leafy vegetables.
ADK SUPPLEMENTS MAY BE PRESCRIBED TO:
- Facilitate absorption of calcium in the body to enhance bone and heart health
- Reduce calcium build up in the blood vessels to ward off cardiovascular disease
- Optimize hormone therapy
- Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
- Reduce the risk for some types of cancer
- Support weight loss goals.
