Olimp Gold-Vit D3+K2 is a dietary supplement which is high in vitamin D3 and enriched with vitamin K2, naturally derived from natto (fermented soya). The formulation promotes bone and joint health and may help make up vitamin D and K deficiencies, very common in colder and less sunny climates. Thanks to a unique combination of ingredients, they have synergistic effects, thereby affecting the potency of the supplement.
Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble compound which is naturally produced in the skin from cholesterol through exposure to sunlight. Nonetheless, in temperate climates, this synthesis is not sufficient to meet 100% of your daily requirement for vitamin D. Because of that, it is necessary to take dietary supplements.
Vitamin D is one of the microelements that are essential to human life. It is found naturally in oily sea fish, e.g. mackerel, cod and plaice. It is also present in milk products such as kefir, yogurt, milk and cheese, particularly blue and mould-ripened cheese. For that reason, vitamin D supplementation is important especially for vegetarians and vegans.
Correcting vitamin D deficiency is associated with many benefits, including enhanced cognitive functions, boosted immune function, stronger bones and better mood. Studies show that vitamin D supplementation may also reduce the risk of developing cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Another benefit of vitamin D intake is an increase in testosterone levels.
In addition, vitamin D has a direct impact on the body’s calcium-phosphate balance. The compound is responsible for maintaining normal blood calcium levels, thereby increasing bone mineral density. This means that bones are less vulnerable to fractures and damage. Furthermore, vitamin D has been demonstrated to help control the proliferation of osteoblasts, i.e. bone-forming cells. According to some sources, bones in persons supplementing with this vitamin were stronger, harder and less susceptible to cracks.
Vitamin D3 affects also the secretion of hormones – insulin and thyroid and parathyroid hormones. Its deficiency may therefore cause hypocalcaemia and bone demineralisation.
Vitamin K is also a fat-soluble vitamin which is necessary for maintaining good health. This supplement contains menaquinone-7 – its most active and assimilable form. This ensures enhanced bioavailability of the supplement, thereby prolonging and enhancing its effects. Vitamin K has a major role in the blood clotting process. It has been demonstrated that daily supplementation helps maintain a healthy circulatory system – by reducing arterial calcification and stiffness, vitamin K may lower the risk of death caused by cardiovascular diseases.
It also improves the health of bones – it has been observed to increase their diameter and volume. This is because vitamin K promotes the function of osteoblasts. Studies have also found that it stimulates the activity of gamma-carboxyglutamic acid containing protein (an enzyme of the bone extracellular matrix), thereby leading to an increase in bone mineral density. Vitamin D also stimulates this process – these compounds work in synergy and their combination is more effective than these vitamins alone. This is because vitamin K metabolites enhance the effects of vitamin D3 on osteoblast mineralisation. What is more, vitamin K prevents the accumulation of calcium in blood vessel walls. Owing to that, they may be used to build bone tissue.
Benefits of capsules with Flow Caps Liquid Technology®
Flow Caps Liquid Technology® was created and patented by Olimp Labs. Encapsulation maximises the bioavailability of the supplement’s ingredients and speeds up their absorption. As a result, they have immediate, direct effects on body cells. The capsule is sealed tightly during the manufacturing process which protects its ingredients from oxidation. This preserves their potency and extends their shelf-life.
Another advantage of Flow Caps® capsules is their size – it has been reduced to the minimum necessary and that is why they are easy to swallow. Taking it with a meal, which increases the availability of its ingredients, e.g. fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K, is no longer a problem.
To sum up, Olimp Gold-Vit D3+K2 is a dietary supplement with vitamins D and K recommended to everyone who wants to maintain healthy bones. What is more, it should be taken by individuals working in offices, i.e. who do not get enough sunlight, physically active individuals, sunscreen users and the elderly.
It is recommended to use the preparation every day for osteoporosis-prevention purposes, particularly by seniors and women right before or after menopause. Vitamin K and vitamin D work in synergy and significantly improve bone structure. Vitamin D also helps to increase muscle tissue development, especially when combined with leucine. It has been proven that vitamin D and leucine used at the same time help to increase insulin levels and its receptors, thanks to which they are believed to have anabolic properties, particularly desired by those who care about the growth of muscle tissue.

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.
Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is an organic chemical that belongs to the family of D vitamins. It is naturally found in fatty fish, fish oil, egg yolks, milk and dairy products. It is also synthesized in the human body. It is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol present in the keratinocytes of the spinous and the basal layers of the epidermis, and a pre-requisite for initiating this process is the action of 290-315 nm wavelength UVB radiation on the skin.
Cholecalciferol is a biologically inactive compound. In the body, it undergoes enzymatic hydroxylation – first in the liver, with the participation of 25-hydroxylase, when calcidiol is formed and secondly in the kidneys, where under the influence of 1-α-hydroxylase, calcidiol is converted into the final active form – calcitriol.
The most important role of vitamin D3 in the body is the regulation of calcium-phosphate metabolism, which directly affects normal skeletal mineralization. In addition, it is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, insulin secretion, as well as in some functions of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
Cholecalciferol is the most popular form of vitamin D used in dietary supplements. Studies show that supplementation with vitamin D in this form most effectively and rapidly raises the level of 25 (OH) D3 – a metabolite that is a marker of the level of vitamin D in the body.
Dosage: according to RDI standards for individual age groups.
What is Vitamin K2?
Vitamin K2 belongs to fat-soluble vitamins It is an important activator of many enzymes and proteins It shows a positive action on calcium balance by activating MGP protein and osteocalcin. This results in the removal of calcium deposits from blood vessel walls and transport of ions of this element to the area where it fulfills its function – teeth and bones. It reduces therefore the calcification of blood vessels and thus the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, it is a constituent of coagulation factors and cosequently prevents haemorrhages. It shows a synergistic action in combination with vitamin D and magnesium.
Vitamin K2 in the form of a dietary supplement of renowned brands e.g. Now Foods, Swanson, Life Extension, Jarrow Formulas and Thorne Research) can be found in formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is menaquinone-7?
Menaquinone-7 is a term used for long-chain form of vitamin K2, having seven isoprene residues in the side chain. Contrary to another popular form MK-4, it is not synthesized in tissues, however, it may be produced in the intestines by means of the conversion from vitamin K1 by intestinal bacteria.
It exhibits especially positive influence on the health of the circulatory system, especially by lowering the risk of atherosclerosis and heart attacks. It owes this effect mainly to osteocalcin, activated by vitamin K2. This hormone is responsible among others for the transport of calcium to bones, which counteracts its storage in soft tissues, decreasing at the same time the probability of blood vessel calcification and the creation of atherosclerotic plaques. K2 MK-7 also contributes to protecting the nervous system, securing neurons from excitotoxicity induced by excessive activity of glutamate and reducing the consequences of excessively low level of glutathione.
Vitamin K2 in the form of menaquinone-7 is a very popular additive to supplements with vitamin D3, due to the synergy of effects and reducing potential negative effects of applying higher doses of cholecalciferol.
Menaquinone-7 may be found both in monopreparations and complex supplements in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
