Vitamin K2, cps. 30, 60, 90
Nutritional supplement containing vitamin K2.
Vitamin K is actually a group of fat-soluble vitamins. The most important are vitamins K1 and K2. Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) is in green leafy vegetables, but it is poorly absorbed, has a short bioavailability, and remains mostly in the liver. Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) is produced by bacteria in a healthy intestinal environment, but most is excreted in the stool. Among foods, the richest source of vitamin K2 is the traditional Japanese food natto, made from fermented boiled soybeans. Vitamin K2 is little present in food typical of Western society.
Preparation Vitamin K2 cps. contains a natural form of vitamin K2, the so-called isomer MK-7, which is obtained by a patented biofermentation process. This form has better bioavailability and stays in the blood serum longer compared to other forms of vitamin K. To achieve the maximum effect in the body, MK-7 is the optimal source of vitamin K2.
Vitamin K contributes to bone mineralization, therefore it is necessary for the formation and maintenance of normal bone structure. The synthesis of bone proteins, of which osteocalcin is the most abundant, is dependent on vitamin K. Osteocalcin has an important role in controlling tissue mineralization and bone remodeling.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) confirmed that vitamin K contributes to maintaining healthy bones. Bone growth and mineralization (deposition of mineral substances into bones) are most intense in humans during childhood and adolescence. The maximum amount of bone mass is reached around the age of thirty, after which the amount of bone mass decreases. In women, bone loss is accelerated by hormonal changes that occur before and during menopause. For this reason, proper nutrition with enough protein, minerals and vitamins, daily exercise, avoiding smoking and drinking sugary carbonated drinks and alcohol, which significantly harms bone mass, is very important at any age.
