High Strength Vitamin K2

£23.00

High Strength Vitamin K2 contains the MK-7 form of K2. K2 is a newly discovered fat soluble vitamin. It is part of the same “quinone” family to which the more commonly known K1 (phylloquinone) belongs and can be supplemented as MK-4 or MK-7. These are comprised of groups of molecules known as menaquinones and the number of side chains to the menaquinone structure indicates the name that it is given (i.e. MK-4 or MK-7). Whilst MK-4 has been studied in relation to bones, it has been shown to have lower bioavailability than MK-7 through oral administration. Vitamin K (both 1 and 2) is rapidly cleared by the liver and a small amount is carried by LDL and HDL. Longer chains such as MK-7, however, are transported by VLDL which has a longer half-life in circulation. MK-7 is required in smaller quantities for a greater effect compared to other forms. Unlike other forms of fat soluble vitamins, K2 is not stored in large quantities in the liver and so toxicity is typically low with the exception of use with anti-coagulants.
