  • This dietary supplement is suitable for lacto-vegetarians‚ and uses science-based nutrition to support bone health and soft tissue elasticity. Doctor’s Best’s Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 delivers optimum levels of vitamin K to bones and tissues‚ while supports calcium metabolism for maintenance of strong bones.

    Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7™ contains pure MenaQ7™‚ the superior form of vitamin K for optimum bioavailability and delivery to the body. MenaQ7™ is purified from natto‚ a traditional Japanese breakfast food made of fermented soybeans that is naturally rich in vitamin K2. Not just a single vitamin‚ Vitamin K is a family of fat-soluble vitamins with similar structures‚ but different metabolic properties. Vitamin K2 belongs to the group of vitamin K compounds called “menaquinones” which demonstrate greater bioactivity when compared to vitamin K1 (the ordinary form of supplemental vitamin K). Vitamin K2 is absorbed more completely‚ remains in the body longer and delivers more benefits for bones‚ blood vessels and other soft tissues.

    The Importance of Vitamin K

    Vitamin K‚ a fat-soluble vitamin‚ is primarily known for its role in regulating blood coagulation. Vitamin K is required for the activity of specialized proteins that control blood clotting throughout your body‚ especially the liver. Vitamin K-dependent proteins are also found in bone and soft tissues‚ including osteocalcin‚ the protein that deposits calcium in bone. Activation of vitamin K-dependent proteins occurs through carboxylation‚ a metabolic process that adds a molecule composed of carbon‚ hydrogen and oxygen to glutamate‚ an amino acid within the protein structure.

    Osteocalcin cannot perform its function of incorporating calcium into bone unless it is activated first. A rise in the amount of inactive (under–carboxylated) osteocalcin circulating in the blood is now regarded as a measure of vitamin K deficiency. Vitamin K supplementation has been shown to decrease blood levels of inactive osteocalcin. Studies report finding elevated levels of inactive osteocalcin in post-menopausal and elderly women. Other studies bring to light a connection between inactive osteocalcin and the deterioration of bone quality and strength that occurs with aging. In view of this‚ it is probably not coincidental that older women deficient in vitamin K may be more likely to experience bone fractures that interfere with motion and overall quality of life.

    While osteocalcin is essential for keeping calcium in bone‚ Matrix Gla Protein (MGP)‚ another vitamin-K dependent protein‚ helps keep calcium from accumulating abnormally in soft tissues such as arteries. Arterial calcification can negatively affect cardiovascular health. As with osteocalcin‚ MGP must be carboxylated to be activated. Inactive MGP tends to collect in calcified arteries.

    Forms of Vitamin K

    Vitamin K exists in two major forms: phylloquinone and the menaquinones. Phylloquinone‚ designated as vitamin K1‚ is the form most commonly found in foods and supplements. Menaquinones‚ designated as vitamin K2‚ are synthesized in the large intestine by gut bacteria. Menaquinones are named MK-4‚ MK-7‚ MK-8 and MK-9‚ according to the length of structurally related molecular side chains attached to the parent molecule. Fermented foods contain substantial amounts of K2‚ which is produced by bacteria that cause the fermentation; this process often changes the taste‚ which keeps many people from getting enough of this nutrient. MK- 7 is the primary menaquinone found in fermented foods such as natto. Two menaquinones are available in dietary supplements; MK-4‚ a synthetic vitamin K2‚ and MK-7‚ which is natural. MK-7‚ thanks to its longer side chain‚ is more stable in the bloodstream and better absorbed than vitamin K1. Recent research reveals that MK-7 contributes to optimum vitamin K storage in the body‚ and functions more effectively as a co-factor for the activation of osteocalcin that is so critical for bone strength.

    Compared to other forms of vitamin K2‚ the effective dose of MK-7 is substantially lower‚ making it a superior choice for long-term consumption as a dietary supplement. Each dose of Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 by Doctor’s Best provides 45 mcg of this vitamin K form. One bottle contains 60 vegetarian capsules.

    Doctors Best great product line

    I have been using Vitamin K2 for several months now. A Nutritionist recommended it to go along with Calcium Magnesium and D3. Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 helps to get calcium into your bones instead of other organs that dont need it.

    Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 is a good vitamin to take if you also take calcium because it keeps calcium from clogging your arteries and keeps it going to the places that it should for instance your bones.

    Pros

      it is a small capsule that is easy to swallow and pure formulas has a good price

    Cons

      nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best K2 = MenaQ7

    To start I have only taken Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 for the last 4 days. But before purchasing Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 I did do a lot of research online of course. If you need K2 supplement dont buy synthetic ones on the market. Try to get K2 derive from Natto or Mena7 patented with a Norway company. Good luck.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
