I doubt it. There is such a strong correlation between low D3 and heart disease, cancer, auto-immune and some neurological diseases that make me believe that most people are on the lower end of D3 level, that's why the effect is so strong! The same applies to K2. At the same time it is not quite clear whether the effect is coincidental or direct causual.
