VITAMIN K

Vitamin K works together with vitamin D for optimal calcium absorption

Aids in preventing fractures and supports bone health for the long haul

Vitamin K plays an important role in our bone health—since vitamin K makes it possible for our bones to absorb a protein called osteocalcin.* Some studies have shown that osteocalcin may be essential for protecting bones from fractures.5,6*

Vitamin K not only works synergistically with vitamin D to increase bone mineral density and modulate bone metabolism, but it positively affects calcium balance.7

Ensure your bones are getting the daily vitamin K they need to stay strong with VIACTIV®. Two VIACTIV® Calcium Soft Chews contain 80 mcg of vitamin K, 90% of the daily recommended value.

Many vegetables, especially leafy greens, are a great source of vitamin K.8
