Is Vitamin D enough?

Is Vitamin D enough?

And the answer…no!

In the past 5-10 years most if not all people living in Canada are taking vitamin D as soon as October rolls around. But truth be told, it is now essential to take vitamin D with the lesser known, vitamin K2.

In short, the role of vitamin D is to help calcium get absorbed into the bloodstream from the foods/minerals you consume. The role of vitamin K2 is to direct calcium from the blood into where we need it most, the teeth and bones.

Here is a link to an audio recording from an interview with my classmate Dr Kate Rheaume ND who is one of the experts on vitamin K2.

As always, it is most important to consult a doctor before taking any vitamins as they could interact with medication.
