Vitamin K for Maintaining Healthy Bone Density, Arterial Health, and Transport of Calcium from the Bloodstream into the Bones.
Supports bone density & arterial health
Vitamin K is critical to maintaining healthy bone density because it facilitates the transport of calcium from the bloodstream into the bone. Vitamin K is also required by calcium-regulating proteins in the arteries. Without enough vitamin K, calcium in the blood can bind to the arterial wall resulting in calcification. So even a slight vitamin K deficiency can pose risks to your vascular system.
Comprehensive Complex Provides All Three Essential Forms of Vitamin K: K1, MK-4 and MK-7, each at an optimal dosage in just one convenient softgel a day.
There are 3 forms of vitamin K your body needs for healthy bone density and cardiovascular health. Vitamin K1, found in plants and vegetables, is so tightly bound to the plant fiber that only a small fraction of it is ever absorbed into your bloodstream. Vitamin K2 is found in meat, eggs, and dairy products - and is also produced by bacteria in your gut.
Vitamin K2 is far better absorbed (up to 10 times better) than K1. The MK-4 form of vitamin K2 is very rapidly absorbed, while the MK-7 form of vitamin K2 stays biologically active in your body far longer and at higher blood levels during that prolonged period.
To avoid a vitamin K deficiency, supplementation is highly advisable. This comprehensive complex gives you all three forms of the vitamin K you need: K1, MK-4 and MK-7, each at an optimal dosage in just one convenient softgel a day.
- What is Vitamin K2 Complex?
It’s a comprehensive vitamin K formula that includes all three forms of the vitamin K you need (K1, and the MK-4 and MK-7 forms of K2) for optimal support of healthy bone density and arterial health.
- Why is vitamin K2 so essential to heart health?
In a large-scale clinical trial of 4,800 people over seven years, it was shown that those who ingested the greatest quantities of vitamin K2 through diet experienced a more protective cardiovascular effect.1
- If vitamin K2 is so easy to find in food, why supplement?
It is most commonly found in meat, eggs and dairy … foods that many of us have restricted in our diets. Since K2 is so essential to your health, it’s wise to augment your dietary intake.
