AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Calcium + Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone) tablets.
Vitamin K2 also known as Menaquinone-2 is a coenzyme essential for the calcium levels regulation. Its function is preventing the deposit of calcium in the arteries, reducing considerably the risk of heart disease.
It can be found in animal foods and fermented foods such as grass-fed cows, liver and other organs, as well as egg yolks, but since people usually dont have this food in their normal diet it is better to supply it directly. Its main role is the inhibition of arterial calcification.
Calcium is a very important mineral for the human body; if there is a lack of the intake it can decrease the bone density, which means an increased risk of bone fractures.
It is also necessary for muscles to contract and for nerves (sending/receiving signals), making the blood vessels to expand and for supporting proteins role and hormone regulation.
If the intake of calcium is adequate the bone gains strength and mineral density, but it also can increase the risk of heart disease, since one of the main causes of these diseases it is the calcium deposit on the arteries.
That is the main reason why vitamin K2 and Calcium are associated to prevent osteoporosis and at the same time lowering the incidence of heart diseases.
