Extra dose for the bones
Vitamin K2 is one of the fat-soluble vitamins. The human body can produce it to some extent. It is built with the support of microorganisms in the intestines and then transported through the blood.
Vitamin K2 favours, among other things, the ‘activation’ of the protein osteocalcin. Osteocalcin is formed in the bone and, as other proteins, binds calcium. Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
Vitamin K participates in the production of some coagulation factors (factor II, VII, IX, and X) and proteins. They form an essential component of blood clotting and ensure that, in the event of an injury, the bleeding is stopped. In this context, the letter ‘K’ refers to coagulation, which relates to the German technical term for blood clotting. Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting.
Vitamin K2 and D3 – a good team
Beside vitamin K2, vitamin D3 is also involved in the formation of the protein osteocalcin. Both vitamins complement each other.
Vitamin D contributes to normal blood calcium levels. Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption/utilisation of calcium. Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
The vitamin drops dissolved in vegetable oil can be quickly absorbed by the human body and as a mono-preparation are suitable for an individual combination. Easy to use, as required due to the handy dosing pipette.
All-trans MK 7, the biologically active variety of vitamin K2 contained in vitamin K2 drops, is obtained from the Japanese food natto. All-trans MK-7, can be well utilized (bioactive form) as it has a high bioavailability and a long half-life.
