Apollo’s Hegemony Vitamin D3 & K2 MK7 is a dietary supplement containing a unique combination of two synergistically active natural vitamins with healthy properties: vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), vitamin K2-MK7 (menaquinone). The product contains the form of vitamin K2 that is the most absorbable and active the longest, that is MK7.
Simultaneous supplementation of vitamins D3 and K2 is beneficial for the entire organism, especially the skeletal and circular systems; it is also very important in preventing diseases of affluence and autoimmunological diseases. Recent studies prove that vitamins D and K work synergistically in many key metabolic processes.
Vitamin D3 is essential for maintaining normal bone mineralisation and plays an important role in the functioning of the nervous system. Contrary to what was believed until recently, vitamin D is not only connected with the management of calcium and phosphorus; it also protects the heart, reduces the risk of cancer and autoimmunological diseases.
Vitamin K2 participates in the process of blood coagulation and bone metabolism, protects the cardio-vascular system, and exhibits antioxidant and anticancer properties.
Vitamins D3 and K2 support the structure of bone tissue. Vitamin D3 affects bone metabolism through the swift transport and absorption of inorganic ions, mainly calcium. Vitamin K2, on the other hand, increases bone mineralisation by, e.g., reducing bone resorption, inhibiting the activity of osteoclasts and transporting calcium from blood to bones.
The vitamins constitute an important element in preventing cancer. For example, vitamin D3 inhibits excessive cell proliferation, prevents the occurrence of harmful gene mutations, and inhibits metastasis, while vitamin K2 induces oxidative stress in cancer cells, thus impeding their development.
Vitamin D3 prevents the clumping of blood platelets and has a relaxant effect on blood vessels, reducing blood pressure, while vitamin K2 reduces the formation of calcifications and prevents calcium deposits, which means the appropriate amount of the vitamins in the organism reduces the risk of atherosclerosis, hypertension, ischaemic heart disease and cardiac arrest.
