Vitamin D (specifically D3, the form of Vit D you get from the sun) is important to for properly absorbing the calcium we all know is so important as we age. Without D3, the benefits may be missing from the calcium in your diet. Most people start taking Vitamin D3 after they experience signs of deficiency.

While Vitamin D ensures that calcium is absorbed, Vitamin K2 directs it to areas of your body such as bones. Without K2, the calcium absorbed may be deposited in the arteries, where it can lead to calcification or other problems.
