Clinical studies demonstrate that Vitamin K plays a vital role in maintaining your bones healthy by facilitating the transport of calcium from the bloodstram into the bones. It is also required by calcium regulating proteins in the arteries such as Matrix Gla-protein. Without adequate vitamin K, calcium in the blood can bind to the arterial wall, leading to calcification. As we age, even subclinical vitamin K deficiency can pose risks to the vascular system. Poor vitamin K status is also associated with a marker for increased bone loss in menopausal women.
Humans get most of their vitamin K in the form of vitamin K1 from green vegetables. However, vitamin K1 is tightly bound to plant fiber and not well absorbed. Vitamin K2 can be found in meat, eggs as well as dairy products and is also produced by the bacteria in our gut. Vitamin K2 is up to ten times more bioavailable than K1 and remains active in the body for longer. The Rotterdam Heart Study, a large-scale clinical trial that followed 4.800 participants over seven years, revealed that the dietary intake of greater quantities of vitamin K2 resulted in less arterial calcification and a better cardiovascular condition.

Ideal Forms of Vitamin K2
Both forms of vitamin K2, MK-4 and MK-7 have demonstrated remarkable health benefits when studied in human populations. MK-4 is the most rapidly absorbed and is now routinely used in Japan to maintain healthy bone density. However, it only remains active in the blood for a few hours. The MK-7 form on the other hand remains bioavailable to the body for 24 hours and to higher levels with proloned intake.
The Most Complete Vitamin K Formula
The latest Super K with Advanced K2 Complex formula provides vitamin K1 as well as the MK-4 and MK-7 forms of vitamin K2 in just one daily softgel. Super K contains the precise amount of MK-7 that, according to clinical studies, sustains optimal vitmain K2 blood levels over a 24 hour period. MK-4 is included to allow for a rapid increase of vitamin K blood levels that may account for its beneficial effects in certain studies.
