Health Categories :

Vitamin K is an essential vitamin needed for cardiovascular, bone and liver health. Vitamin K2 is more effective than vitamin K1, the form found in plants, for these specific health effects. There are two effective and popular forms of Vitamin K2: namely MK-4 and MK-7. While MK-4 is the active form of vitamin K2 used by the body and has been used clinically in Japan for decades with good results, MK-7 has also been shown to provide good results at low doses in a sustained-release manner. AOR’s Vitamin K2 provides a 50/50 blend of MK-4 and MK-7 to ensure the best of both worlds.

The most popular, albeit recently highlighted, use for vitamin K2 is for bone health. Vitamin K, along with vitamin D, is essential for proper calcium absorption and usage in the bones. Vitamin K2 also stimulates the synthesis of proteins that regulate bone growth, and has been shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures and improve bone quality.

Vitamin K is also essential to cardiovascular health. It is an important blood clotting factor: without adequate amounts, the risk of bruising and excessive bleeding increases substantially. By the same token, vitamin K enhances calcium absorption from the bloodstream into the bones, preventing arterial calcification and promoting healthy blood vessel function and heart health. Ultimately, Vitamin K2 is an excellent adjunct to conventional osteoporosis medications and is essential for those taking calcium supplements. Vitamin K2 may also be useful for those with a family history of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, arterial calcification or for people who bruise or bleed easily.

DISCUSSION: MK-4 and MK-7 are the two optimal forms of Vitamin K2 in AOR’s Vitamin K2 that help maintain healthy bones. * Vitamin K2 is formulated as a softgel for this fat-soluble vitamin.
