  • Vitamin K2‚ provided by Douglas Laboratories®‚ supplies a significant amount of biologically active vitamin K in the form of menaquinone-7 (MK-7). This product is soy free.

    Vitamin K was originally discovered as the antihemorrhagic factor‚ but it now encompasses a variety of physiological processes. The major source of vitamin K in most diets is phylloquinone (vitamin K1)‚ which is present in green leafy vegetables such as spinach‚ broccoli‚ and kale. Vitamin K2 is present in small amounts in fermented foods‚ milk products‚ cheese‚ and meat‚ and is synthesized by various human gut microbiota. It is well documented that the Western population obtains sufficient vitamin K from their regular diets‚ possibly related to poor absorption from these foods.Beyond blood clotting‚ the role of vitamin K in osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease is related to calcium utilization. Scientific studies have revealed that vitamin K plays a crucial role in building and maintaining bone health‚ which is influenced by osteoblasts‚ osteoclasts‚ hormones‚ cytokines and utritional factors‚ including vitamin K intake. Inadequate calcium metabolism can result in cardiovascular and bone health problems. The deposition of calcium into arteries is an organized‚ regulated process similar to bone formation that occurs when other factors are present. Proteins like osteocalcin and matrix Gla protein‚ which are actively involved in the transport of calcium out of vessel walls‚ are suspected to have key roles in coronary calcium eposition. The greater the amount of calcification‚ the greater the likelihood one may develop suboptimal coronary health. Additionally‚ research shows undercarboxylated osteocalcin and low vitamin K intakes are risk factors for fractures in women. Vitamin K is needed to activate osteocalcin (carboxylated)‚ which functions to take calcium out of the vessels and deposit them into the bones. Therefore‚ consuming sufficient amounts of dietary calcium is not enough for bone and cardiovascular health; the body needs to distribute and utilize the calcium properly with aid of Vitamin K.

    Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) is more bioactive and has proven more effective than vitamin K1 and other menaquinones. MK-7 showed eight times the half-life of vitamin K1 in a 24-hour serum concentration level after 1 mg of each form was ingested. Thus‚ MK-7 can be administered in low dosages only once a day‚ typically 1/1000 that of a MK-4 dose. Furthermore‚ the study showed better utilization and improved osteocalcin carboxylation for MK-7 after 6
    weeks. Numerous studies reveal long-chain menaquinones‚ such as MK-7 are more effective in upporting arterial health than vitamin K1 menaquinones. Douglas Labs’ Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is derived from geraniol and farnesol. Geraniol is the primary part of rose oil‚ palmarosa oil‚ and citronella oil. Farnesol is present in many essential oils such as citronella‚ lemon grass‚ rose‚ and musk. This natural form of MK-7 has been extensively tested for molecular identity and bioequivalence when compared to MK-7 from fermented soybeans (natto). It is the all-trans form‚ thus providing a significantly higher purity of the only biologically active form.

    Excellent company and product

    I learned of the Douglas Labs company 4 years ago by my NP as she only recommends companies that reach a high standard by an independent analysis company. I have known for some years that it is essential to take Vitamin K2 for its importance in depositing calcium where it belongs in the body. Without Vitamin K2 calcium resides in soft tissues like the arteries and not in the bones where we want it. I have no adverse effects from it and am quite pleased. I also like to order from Pure Formulas as I receive products in a timely fashion. They also have a good return policy which is comforting as some products work for one individual while not working for another. Ive only had to return 2 products in 3 years of numerous orders from PF but it is so nice to deal with a company who has such a policy.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    K2 combined with D3 for strong bones

    Dont have empirical evidence but am combining K2 with D3 is reputed to have benefits for strong bones. A better choice than Calcium products that may not work as well.

    Pros

      Ordering is easy and product arrives quickly. One capsule/day makes it easy to take.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
