Improves overall cardiovascular health
Based on polymethoxylated flavones, tocotrienols, microencapsulated vitamin K2 and vegan vitamin D3 from Lichen.
SytriDK2 acts on both the osteoarticular system and the cardiovascular system. Vitamin D3 is responsible for absorbing the calcium which, when there is a K2 and magnesium deficiency, tends to build up and cause the coronary calcifications that are a prelude to atherosclerosis.
Vitamin K2 promotes the fixation of calcium in the bones and teeth, reducing the risk of fractures and improving the density and level of bone mineralization in conditions such as osteopenia or osteoporosis, which occur more frequently with aging in conjunction with hormonal changes such as the menopause and with changes in metabolism (metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes).
SytriDK2 provides the unique synergy of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), the active form of vitamin D, and vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7), with tocotrienols and flavonoids from citrus nobilis exerting, respectively, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and regulating effects on plasma lipid levels. The synergy between vitamin D3 and K2 has been amply demonstrated: vitamin D3 promotes the correct absorption of calcium and the production of proteins that require vitamin K2 to function properly.
- Citrus nobilis dry extract titrated at 40% in polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs)
- Palm tocotrienols
- Vitamin K2 VITAL® DELTA (Menaquinone-7)
- Vegan vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) from lichen
- Anti-caking agents: maize starch, arabic gum, calcium carbonate, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate
PROPERTIES OF THE INGREDIENTS:
- Polymethoxylated flavones and Tocotrienols: contributes to reduce total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides levels in the blood and the LDL:HDL ratio.
- Microencapsulated Vitamin K2 VITAL® has a half-life of about 72 hours and a high degree of purity and bioavailability. The action of vitamin K2 is twofold: it prevents the calcium that circulates in the blood, and that we take in with food, from building up in the arteries and soft tissues, and promotes the action of the matrix Gla protein and of osteocalcin, essential for bone mineralization and whose deficiency leads to osteoporosis. This helps bone calcification and diminishes the risk of plaque formation in the arteries and of tissue calcifications.
- Vegan vitamin D3 from Icelandic lichen (2000 IU): essential for the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, bone mineralization and the absorption of vitamin A; its deficiency causes rickets, osteomalacia and osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 promotes muscle contraction and trophism, fights diabetes and metabolic syndrome, stimulates the immune system by reducing the incidence of infections and some autoimmune diseases and plays a crucial role in cardiovascular protection
