Vitamin K2 is a fat soluble vitamin essential for normal blood clotting and bone metabolism. There are three different forms of vitamin K: K1 (phytoquinone), K2 (menaquinone), which can be made by natural bacteria in the intestines, and K3 (menadione), a synthetic version of vitamin K. Clinical research has demonstrated significant protection of bone strength with the K2 form of vitamin K.
Menaquinone-7 (MK-7) is an effective activator of osteocalcin, the protein essential for calcium deposition in bone. It works synergistically with vitamin D3 to help influence mineral strength in bones and teeth.
CanPrev?s K2 (K2VITAL?) offers a unique form of MK-7 that is derived from organic synthesis of non-soy plant oils (geraniol and farnesol), yielding a pure, active and 100% trans form. This particular process results in a K2 MK-7 that is identical to the K2 MK-7 molecule found in nature and the molecule created by fermentation manufacturing. However, organic synthesis is superior to the fermentation process as it produces a K2 MK-7 that is 100% ?all-trans? format, which means it is 100% bio-active and stable.
CanPrev?s K2 softgels are formulated to provide 120mcg of K2 in every softgel with organic coconut oil. Coconut oil is a stable fatty acid that enhances the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, such as vitamin K2.
