Vitamin K2 by Seeking Health provides 50 mcg of vitamin K2 (as menaquinone-7) in each vegetarian capsule.Vitamin K2 is an important fat-soluble vitamin essential for circulatory health and normal bone health. Several different forms of vitamin K exist, with the primary dietary form being vitamin K1, or phylloquinone, found primarily in green vegetables. Another form of vitamin K known as vitamin k2, or menaquinone, is found primarily in animal products such as meat or eggs, as well as in foods such as cheese and natto, a fermented soy product. While most of the benefits of vitamin K were previously attributed to vitamin K1, recent research has identified important benefits for vitamin K2. This product provides a unique form of vitamin K2 that is not derived from natto for maximum tolerance by those sensitive to soy.

Two forms of vitamin K2 are used in dietary supplements: a natural form (known as MK-7) and a synthetic form (known as MK-4). While both forms have been found to have beneficial effects for bone health, the natural MK-7 form of K2 appears to have several advantages over the synthetic form. MK-7 has no reported side effects, is well-absorbed, and is the only vitamin K2 available in supplement form that is naturally derived. MK-7 also has the longest half-life in the body compared to other forms. For maximum benefit, the natural vitamin K2 is supplied in this product.
Vitamin K2 may play a role in the activation and accumulation of calcium binding proteins. MK-7 has also been associated with healthy bone density. Emerging research also suggests an important role for natural MK-7 form of vitamin K2 for healthy arterial function.
