Vitamin K2-MK7

Helps in the support and maintenance of Cardiovascular Health and more!

Vitamin K-2 (menaquinone) is one of several forms of the essential nutrient that is vitamin K. While vitamin K-1 (phylloquinone) is best known for its role in blood coagulation, K-2 plays an essential role in the development and maintenance of the human skeleton by activating two key bone proteins: osteocalcin and matrix GIa protein (MGP). Although it supports calcium deposition into the bone mineral matrix, vitamin K-2 also appears to keep calcium from depositing in soft tissues. For this reason, it may have a protective role against atherosclerosis in the maintenance of arterial flexibility. In essence, K-2 MK-7 ensures that calcium is sent to where it should be--not to where it doesn’t belong.

About Vitamin K2

Vitamin K is found in certain fermented soy-based foods and green vegetables but it is rapidly metabolized and excreted by the body, necessitating regular replenishment to maintain levels.  In addition, inconsistent dietary habits, soy allergy and intolerance, plus anti-coagulant medications all make it challenging to achieve consistent benefits from dietary vitamin K sources.  While other forms of vitamin K-2 are available in supplement form, such as MK-4, research shows that MK-7 is the most bioavailable form.  That’s why PLV Vitamin K-2 consists exclusively of micro-encapsulated MK-7—the most efficiently absorbed, stable form of vitamin K-2.  It is double micro-encapsulated using a unique process that ensures compatibility with supplementary doses of minerals and a long shelf-life. Our MK-7 is dry form, soy-free, and produced from rose and geranium oils.
