Vitamin K2 is important because it helps in the formation of several factors that help prevent over-mineralization of calcium and phosphorous in the blood, as well as tissues of the body such as the blood vessels and arteries. Although we know that both calcium and phosphorous are important minerals to bone health, they must be in proper concentrations and be able to be dissolved to be delivered to the bones. The activity of muscles, bone growth and redepositing of minerals into the bone depend on these minerals.1
Inflammation is often caused by an imbalance in the immune messenger molecules, causing inadequate, natural antiinflammatory mechanisms. Evidence has shown that there is a relationship between the gastrointestinal microbiota, the mucosal and systemic immune responses, in addition to the development of joint soreness and stiffness.1 In auto-immune joint stiffness, the body’s immune system starts attacking its own tissue, specifically the synovial membrane, which is the membrane that surrounds and holds the joint tissues together.1
For those of you who missed it, IMMUNE+++ was recently featured for the first time on the award-winning American Health Journal. LifePharm Research Scientist Dr. Edward Andujar and Executive R and D Scientist Kimberly Lloyd M.S. explained to viewers how not all vitamin C blends are the same, including what defines an immune booster. LifePharm Silver IBO Dr. Jose Toro also discussed how the immune system works with three types of white blood cells.
