What Are Vitamins D And K?
Vitamin D and vitamin K are essential, fat-soluble nutrients. One of vitamin D’s primary functions is to promote calcium absorption and maintain adequate calcium levels in your blood. Vitamin K is found in leafy greens, fermented legumes and vegetables, as well as in some fatty, animal-sourced foods, such as egg yolk, liver and cheese.
It’s necessary for blood clotting and promotes the accumulation of calcium in your bones and teeth.

This paper dived into the immunoregulatory effects of supplementing Vitamin D 3 by elaborating a causal loop diagram. Together with D 3 , vitamin K 2 and magnesium should be supplemented to prevent long-term health risks. Causal loop diagrams (CLDs) functioned as a tool to illustrate the principle of causality of 25(OH)D serum levels on the human metabolism and form the basis for systems analysis (Mabin et al., 2006).
Such causal loop diagrams are powerful instruments for problem identification and problem resolving purposes by breaking down a comprehensive system into fragments in order to enhance its comprehensibility (Haraldsson, 2004). Visualizing concepts makes it much easier to understand complex correlations and casualties (i.e. Cause and effect mechanisms).
Conclusions Recent COVID-19-related data evaluation showed indications that a high 25(OH)D blood serum level might have an impact on the mortality rate of coronavirus patients.
