Staying healthy these days can present a challenge. Between work and personal responsibility, finding the time to eat healthily, work out, and do what you need to do is difficult.
The need to stay healthy in such a busy world is one reason why supplements are popular. Anything you can do that could improve your health is a positive.
Vitamins vitamin D3 K2 and magnesium are useful supplements that may improve your health and reduce stress.
Vitamin D3 is an essential part of your overall well-being in that it helps your body correctly process calcium.
In general, D3 is mainly provided by sunlight exposure (90 percent of your total daily need), and the difference is made up of the foods you eat. However, due to modern life leaving you indoors regularly, getting the amount of D3 you need can be very difficult as it is difficult to make up the differences through diet.
A lack of D3 is a common issue leading to health concerns such as fatigue, muscle weakness, immune issues, and problems with your bones. This need for D3 is why D3 supplements are popular.
Adding Vitamin K
Vitamin K works alongside D3 to possibly improve the overall effectiveness of the supplements. As vitamin K can be lacking in your diet a supplement may help.
By adding vitamin K you may improve your body’s ability to absorb calcium from the blood. As D3 supplements are often taken to possibly assist with your body’s ability to use the calcium, you want to assist with the process of ensuring calcium is absorbed by the bones instead of collecting in other parts of the body and not going to good use.
Vitamin K also has the added benefit of possibly preventing certain types of blood clotting.
The Need for Magnesium
The addition of magnesium also assists D3 in possibly improving your overall health. While vitamin D3 helps your body absorb calcium, magnesium helps on the other end of the process by making calcium easier to absorb.
With the addition of magnesium, calcium becomes soluble, which may improve your body’s overall ability to absorb it.
Like D3 and vitamin K you may find your diet lacks magnesium and when you add D3 to your diet via supplements, you’ll also want your magnesium levels to increase.
When taking supplements, you’ll find that many vitamins and chemicals your body needs work together or in combination with each other.
D3 is one of the easiest chemicals to be deficient in and it serves the vital role of improving your body’s energy levels and overall bone health.
Without the ability to efficiently absorb the calcium you eat you may develop health issues such as osteoporosis. However, taking D3 by itself does not maximize your ability to make use of its many possible positive effects.
By combing it with vitamin K and magnesium, you may improve your body’s ability to absorb calcium and also make the calcium itself easier for your body to properly make use of.
Luckily, many well-made supplements exist blending these three vitamins in the proper amounts.
