MK-7 Select - 60 Capsules
MK-7 Select™ contains 160 mcg of vitamin K2 in the well-absorbed Menaquinone-7 form.
Vitamin K helps to support healthy blood clotting, healthy bones and a healthy cardiovascular system. It works together with vitamin D to help prevent vessel mineralization by serving to direct calcium into bones and away from blood vessel walls. Vitamin K dependent proteins are also involved in the regulation of numerous cellular functions.
Vitamin K is known to exist in two primary forms: vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and vitamin K2 (a family of menaquinones). Both forms of vitamin K help to support normal bone formation and preserve bone strength, but the K2 form specifically has been researched as a significant regulator of tissue calcification, making it important for the maintenance of arterial elasticity and cardiovascular health.
Of the different known forms of vitamin K2, the most readily absorbed and bioactive form is Menaquinone-7 (MK-7). MK-7 is present in some fermented foods, notably natto, but it is not found in common dietary sources. MK-7 is transported directly to tissues and has a longer half-life than either vitamin K1 or MK-4, another form of K2. Like all forms of vitamin K, MK-7 is fat-soluble and should be taken with a meal for best absorption.
