Overview

Best Result Nutrition Potent Vitamin K2 MK-7 Natto 100mcg provides superior quality and easy to swallow daily vitamin K supplement. More recently Vitamin K2 and its dependent proteins have been shown to be of vital importance for bone and vascular health.

One of vitamin D's primary functions is to ensure adequate levels of calcium in your blood. Vitamin K promotes calcium accumulation in your bones while reducing its accumulation in soft tissues such as blood vessels.

Best Result Nutrition MK-7 (Menaquinone-7) contains a highly biologically active form of Vitamin K2 derived from natto, a traditional Japanese fermented soy food. It is allergen-free, non-GMO, and has a stable fermentation process in a vegetarian capsule providing 125% of the recommended daily allowance.

Menaquinones or MK-7  is an enhanced bioactive form of vitamin K2. The absorption of MK-7 from Natto is more efficient than K1 from spinach. While the liver primarily absorbs vitamin K1, MK-7 is absorbed in extrahepatic tissues, such as the arterial wall, pancreas, and testes.

How Is Vitamin K2 Important to You*?

While other nutrients are essential for promoting and maintaining your bone health (vitamin D3 for example), evidence continues to surface indicating the indispensable role vitamin K operates in bone metabolism and healthy bone growth.

Natto may be exceptionally healthy, as it also contains a significant amount of Vitamin K2, which is essential for cardiovascular and bone health and many people aren't getting enough of  (1, 2).

VitaminK2 is so crucial because it appears to stimulate and enhance osteocalcin production, a protein that supports the accumulation of calcium in your teeth and bones (3). Moreover, Vitamin K activates matrix GLA protein, preventing calcium from accumulating in soft tissues, such as blood vessels and the kidneys(4, 5).*

Therefore, the evidence is pretty compelling when it comes to the essential role vitamin K2 potentially represents in supporting your healthy bones.

At this point, some controlled human studies have examined the effects of vitamin K supplements on blood vessel calcification, although more studies are underway (6, 7, 8).*

Blood vessel calcification implies the growth of chronic diseases, such as kidney and heart disease (9, 10, 11).*

Observational studies have connected low vitamin K levels to a heightened risk of blood vessel calcification(BVC)  (12).*

People who get proper amounts of vitamin K2 in their diet are at a decreased risk of blood vessel calcification and heart disease (13, 14, 15).*

Since vitamin K is fat-soluble, consume it with fat for improved absorption. For instance, you could take your supplements with a meal that contains fat, like egg, leafy greens with olive oil, salmon and more.
