Article: Proper Calcium Use: Vitamin K2 as a Promoter of Bone and Cardiovascular Health
Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in our body. It is also one of the few which receives a lot of mainstream attention. In the past, and in some cases to this day, the way calcium is promoted is less than ideal.
Whether the campaign strategy is targeting school-age children, or post-menopausal women, the information and strategies provided are suboptimal.
I would bet that when people think of taking supplemental calcium for health concerns, they may also remember that you have been advised to take vitamin D for optimal absorption of the calcium. If it cannot get into your bloodstream, it cannot help you.
