Vitamin K2 is best known for its role in coagulation and blood clot formation, however important recent research has uncovered K2's role in bone metabolism and calcium homeostasis.
Vitamin K2 is required for the activation of certain proteins in the body that regulate where calcium is placed. These proteins are aptly named "vitamin K2 dependant proteins", one K2 dependant protein named osteocalcin has received much attention as a key player in bone health.
A strong healthy bone matrix requires adequate K2 in the diet. Without K2 dependant proteins would remain inactive and be unable to effectively bind to calcium and allow for it to be deposited in bone tissue. MK-4 is recognised as a bioavailable and biologically active form of Vitamin K that provides benefits.
Carlson Labs K2 contains 5mg (5000mcg) and is a particularly high strength product. For those seeking a lower strength we also offer a NOW Foods 100mcg K2 and MK4 product which is also suitable.
