VITAMIN K2, MK7
GOOD FOR BETTER ABSORPTION OF VITAMIN D3
Vitamin K refers to a family of similar compounds that play a role in blood clotting and bone health. Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) is particularly important for bone mineralization and calcium metabolism. Menaquinone works together with vitamin D to direct calcium deposits to bone rather than soft tissue, which is important for both skeletal and cardiovascular health.
Research shows that menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is more bioavailable and has a longer half-life than other forms of vitamin K. MK-7 is formulated with all-natural menaquinone-7, which is derived from fermented soybeans.

Vitamin K deficiency is common in people with liver damage or liver disease, those with cystic fibrosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and after abdominal surgery.
Vitamin K deficiency is common in people with eating disorders, such as bulimia, and in patients on strict or very strict diets.
People taking anticoagulants, silicates, barbiturates, or cefamandol may also have a vitamin K deficiency.
SYMPTOMS OF VITAMIN K DEFICIENCY
Signs and symptoms of vitamin K deficiency may include:
Heavy menstrual bleeding
Osteoporosis is strongly associated with low levels of vitamin K in the blood
Cardiovascular disease is strongly associated with low blood levels of vitamin K.
HOW MUCH VITAMIN K SHOULD I TAKE?
According to the Institute of Medicine, the recommended daily intake is 120 micrograms for men and 90 micrograms for women.
Vitamin K2 (MK-7) with nattokinase, powerful formula that can promote healthy bones and cardiovascular function.
What is Vitamin K2 (MK-7) from Natto?
Vitamin K2 (MK-7) is an advanced formula of vitamin K2 and the enzyme made from natto, fermented soy from Japan. It is composed of 275 amino acids and is found as one of the active ingredients in functional natto. Vitamin K is also produced in the body in small amounts by intestinal bacteria. In addition, it is part of our diet.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble substance that occurs naturally in two forms, vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Our Western diet contains primarily vitamin K1 (about 90% of our total vitamin K intake). Food sources of small amounts of vitamin K2 are animal products, such as meat, eggs, and certain fermented cheeses. The richest natural source of K2 is Japanese natto (a fermented soy product). Vitamin K2 is a potent form of vitamin K, thus the need is less.
How can vitamin K2 (MK-7) from natto support health?
K stands for coagulation (blood clotting). The vitamin contributes to normal blood clotting, a function of vitamin K2 that has been known for quite a long time. In addition, it contributes to the maintenance of normal bones because vitamin K2 plays a role in the activity of osteocalcin, a bone protein involved in the formation and maintenance of healthy and well-mineralized bone tissue.
Vitamin K's main function in the body is to help produce GLA (gamma carboxyglutamic acid) protein, as it plays a role in blood clotting and liquefaction.
Vitamin K is also important for osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) to bind osteocalcin, a protein that binds calcium. Therefore, adequate amounts of vitamin K should be given to the body to ensure that calcium is properly delivered to the bones and also to maintain arterial health.
