K2 Liquid provides vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), the bioactive form of K2 obtained through fermentation of Bacillus subtilis natto cultures. The highly bioavailable MK-7 supports vitamin K repletion when deficient and plays a role in inhibiting vascular calcification and promoting bone mineralization.*

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin; however, the body has limited vitamin K storage capacity compared to other lipophilic vitamins. Vitamin K is rapidly depleted without regular dietary intake, but a small reserve is recycled through a complex oxidation-reduction cycle. The primary function of vitamin K is as a cofactor in the production of blood coagulation factors in the liver, but it also has a rather complicated physiological role in the carboxylation of the proteins involved in bone mineralization and in inhibition of arterial calcification.*[1,2]
Naturally occurring vitamin K is found as either K1 (phylloquinone), which is derived from food sources such as green leafy vegetables, or K2 (menaquinones). Absorption of K1 from food can be limited due to its membrane-bound nature and an individual’s digestive and absorptive variability
