Vitamin K2 is an essential nutrient‚ best known for its role in blood clorring. Dietary sources are partially converted into Menatetrenone‚ or MK-4‚ the biologically active form of vitamin K2. Menatetretone has a unique effects on bones not shared by other forms of vitamin K‚ particularly at lower dosages.
Over the course of last decade‚ at least sixteen clinical trials have been performed using Menatetretone‚ and all have found that K2 supplement protect the skeletal system. Study results have shown that menatetretone not only helps combat the loss of bone mass‚ it dramatically helps reduce the risk of suffering a fracture. In one trial‚ women who took Menatetretone for 24 weeks increased their bone mineral density (BMD) by an impressive 2.2%‚ even as the women taking a placebo lost 7.31%. In another trial‚ osteoporotic women taking Menatetrenone sustained nearly no bone loss over two years‚ while cutting fracture risk by 64% as compared with non-supplementing women. The ability of bones to withstand fractures is not just determined by the quantity of bone‚ but also by the quality of bone. Bones with a better microarchitecture maintain their flexibility and therefore and therefore less likely to fracture. Evidence suggest that Menatetretone's most important effects are on this type of bone quality‚ and clinical trials have found that Menatetretone provides as much protection against fracture as drugs that have much more powerful effects on BMD.
Menatetretone's health benefits extend well beyond the skeletal system. Emerging science is now documenting the role of vitamin K in supporting cardiovascular health and brain health.
