When it comes to vitamin K2, there are two common forms available in the majority of supplements: menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and menaquinone-7 (MK-7). Most of the research on vitamin K2 has been conducted on MK-4, but focus has started to shift to MK-7 due to bioavailability and efficacy in the last few years, as all forms of vitamin K can be converted to MK-4 in vivo in humans. In fact, a few studies found that 1500 mcg/day of MK-4 was required to improve osteocalcin carboxylation, while only 90 mcg/day of MK-7 was necessary. These findings demonstrate that MK-7 is superior to MK-4 (and even vitamin K1) in regards to half-life, bioavailability, efficacy, and safety.
The average daily intake of vitamin K2 in the West is only 24 mcg per day, which is far below the level required to carboxylate proteins. A 2012 study, which aimed to determine the most effective dose of MK-7, tested a dosing range from 10mcg to 360 mcg. Study authors found that only the highest dosage (300+ mcg) was able to confer the most health benefits. The 300+ mcg dose would be the most effective dose on the market and reflects the average consumption of K2 in the Eastern Japanese populations—a dose that has been shown to be very effective for health maintenance.
