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.

Love this for my blood pressure!
My thyroid went out over the winter due to cold, dry air setting off my allergies (uses up zinc rebuilding damaged mucous membranes and zinc is needed for the thyroid), and when you go even subclinically hypothyroid (TSH >=2.0) your cholesterol starts to rise as mine did. My blood pressure went up and as spring came it did not recover obviously the blood vessels got clogged. I took Peak K2 by Abvanced Orthomolecular Research on alternate days with a natto product from Doctor's Best (they are both blood thinners so I decided to alternate days) and in about 2 weeks I felt better and my blood pressure improved significantly. (To me that is FAST!). This is also used in Japan for osteopenia. But only in THIS (MK-4) form it is toxic to take MK-7 in high dose (I believe). This product is the highest dose I could find MK-4 in and it is 1/3 the dose they give in Japan for osteopenia(I believe). I wouldn't take it is a higher dose when this dose works so well.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
