Vitamin K2-7 supports healthy bone mineralization by acting as a cofactor in the carboxylation of osteocalcin, allowing calcium to bind to this protein in the extracellular matrix of bone.

Vitamin K2-7 also supports healthy cardiac and vascular function. Additionally vitamin K2 may help support healthy lipid levels and glucose metabolism. 

Compared to other forms of Vitamin K, Vitamin K2-7 has a longer half-life, resulting in more stable levels in the body. For best absorption, take with a mixed meal or some healthy dietary fat.

Each capsule contains 180 mcg of menaquinone 7.

VITAMIN K IS ESSENTIAL FOR BONE
AND CARDIOVASCULAR STRENGTH

WHAT IS VITAMIN K2?

Vitamin K is a family of compounds, the first which is classified as vitamin K1 or phylloquinone. K1 is produced by plants. The second group is known as Vitamin K2, which has several forms. These forms are known as “menaquinones”. Menaquinones are produced by bacteria, and even are produced by bacteria in our gut, but these unfortunately are produced too far along in the GI tract for us to absorb.

WHAT IS THE MK-7 FORM OF VITAMIN K2?

MK-7 has two very distinct features, one, that it strongly supports bone strength, and two,
that it protects the cardiovascular system. These qualities of MK-7 were discovered when researchers noticed that the Japanese communities that consumed a high amount of MK-7 had less heart disease and better bone health. The MK-7 form of Vitamin K2 is found in select fermented foods, including fermented soy (natto-a common Japanese food), fermented chickpeas, and aged cheese.

WHAT ARE THE FUNCTIONS OF VITAMIN K2?

MK-7 is a cofactor in the carboxylation of osteocalcin, a protein found in bone, which allows calcium to bind to the bone matrix. MK-7 also plays a role in maintaining normal calcium metabolism in the arteries, and supports vascular elasticity, helping to prevent arterial stiffness and calcification (1). *W3Schools.com
WHAT IS K2 (MK-7) BONE AND ARTERY SUPPORT?

K2 (MK-7) Bone and Artery Support is our natural MK-7 supplement, delivering 180 mcg per capsule. This dose has been shown in research to be the effective amount for bone and arterial health. MK-7 has a longer half-life than other forms of vitamin K, including MK-4, meaning that it lasts longer in the body and results in more stable levels. In regards to bone, MK-7 allows for the carboxylation of osteocalcin, an important bone-building protein. MK-7 also strengthens the microarchitecture of bone (2).* In regards to arterial health, MK-7 regulates proteins called matrix-gla protein, which is responsible for preventing arterial calcification (1). *

What is K2 (MK-7) bone and artery support
Why Bone and Artery Support Contains Only MK-7, not MK-4 or K1

A great deal of scientific research supports MK-7 for bone and arterial health. We like to deliver the effective dose of this important nutrient, which is 180-200 mcg, in our product. We do not include K1 because it is easily available in all dark green leafy vegetables, and included in most
multivitamins. We do not include MK-4 at this time because it has a very short half-life, and the effective dose for bone health is extremely high and must be taken three times a day.

MK-7 is active at lower doses than MK-4 because of its high bioavailability (3). An effective dose of MK-4 for improvement in bone quality is 225 times the necessary dose of MK-7 for the same action. In addition, MK-7 has been shown to more completely carboxylate osteocalcin than vitamin K1 (4). *MK-4 can be obtained from our Alkalizing Minerals formula if desired.

• Provides the therapeutic dose of Vitamin K2 MK-7 used in bone health research and in the Japanese diet (5)*

• Easily absorbed and bioavailable*

• Free of gluten, milk/dairy, soy, egg, sugar, coatings and binders*

• Longer half-life than other forms of Vitamin K (up to 2 days)* (3)
