There are two forms of vitamin K—K1 and K2. K1 is an important dietary form of vitamin K that’s found in green, leafy vegetables and some vegetable oils. Carlson Labs has found an answer to that “gap” in our food. Vitamin K2 is found in fewer food sources. Vitamin K2 as MK-7 is an enhanced, bioactive form of vitamin K that has superior retention in the body.
Without vitamin K2, calcium can’t adequately be processed in our body to help maintain strong, healthy bones. Vitamin K2 activates certain proteins, including osteocalcin and Matrix GLA Protein (MGP), which play a role in binding calcium to the bone matrix.
Vitamin K2 also supports cardiovascular system health by promoting healthy blood clotting and directing calcium out of the bloodstream and arteries and into the bones.
