Summary:

For healthy bone growth and development MenaQ7® is a natural form of vitamin K2 produced through the fermentation of Bascillus subtilis.

The fermentation process produces menaquinone-7 (MK-7) a highly bioavailable form of vitamin K2. MenaQ7® is beneficial for bone health and maintenance. Vitamin K2 is required to activate osteocalcin thus helping to build and maintain strong bones. Vitamin K2 can be used to assist normal blood coagulation in healthy people.

 

Product Highlights:

  • MenaQ7® is a highly bioavailable form of vitamin K2. Clinical trials have reported an association between increased MK-7 levels and increased levels of activated osteocalcin in patients with osteoporosis.
  • MenaQ7® can be used to support bone health in growing children. Many children are now deficient in K vitamins due to a lack of dietary intake.
  • MenaQ7® is superior to other forms of vitamin K in terms of absorption and half-life. Vitamin K2 has a longer half-life than vitamin K1. MenaQ7® reaches peak serum concentration after 4 hours and remains in the body for up to 72 hours.
