The body needs calcium to build strong bones and teeth. But calcium does not act alone. It needs vitamin D for absorption, vitamin K2 to distribute it to the right places and vitamin A to discharge excess calcium. Calcium also needs magnesium to balance it.
Vitamin K2 does 2 things. It put calcium in the right places, ie, bones and teeth and removes calcium from places where it should not be, ie, soft tissues like the arteries (plaque in arteries). eyes (cataract) and kidney (kidney stones).
