3 PACK VITAMIN MK7 K2
Vitamin K2 is essential for bone, cardiovascular and nervous system health. * As a biologically active form of vitamin K, vitamin K-2 is important for the formation of a strong and healthy bone matrix. * When we have vitamin K2 deficiency the calcium in the blood can attach to the arterial wall and produce arterial calcifications.
Low-dose vitamin K2 contains the menaquinone-7 form of vitamin K2, which is not metabolized rapidly by the liver, so it is available to provide a more consistent supply of vitamin K to the body.
Vitamin K plays a key role in maintaining bone density in healing by facilitating the transport of calcium from the bloodstream to the bone. The proteins that regulate calcium are also required in the arteries.
Studies in humans show that vitamin K2 is up to ten times more bioavailable than K1. Vitamin K2 remains biologically active in the body much longer than K1. For example, the liver rapidly eliminates K1 within eight hours, whereas measurable levels of K2 (MK-7) have been detected 72 hours after ingestion.
A large-scale, well-controlled clinical trial that followed 4,800 participants for seven years revealed that participants who ingest the highest amount of vitamin K2 in their diet experienced a better cardiovascular condition compared to people who ingest the least amount of vitamin K2 in their diet.
In the same study, high intakes of vitamin K2 also corresponded to a lower calcium deposition in the aorta, while participants who ingested less K2 were more likely to present moderate or severe calcification. Animal studies suggest that vitamin K intake not only blocks the progress of increased calcium accumulation, but also induces a 37% regression of arterial calcification.
