Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone 7)
Vitamin K is an essential nutrient that the body cannot manufacture on its own. Vitamin K2 is the form of the nutrient that works best for promoting healthy bone development and other bodily functions and helps to ensure that the mineral calcium is adequately distributed throughout the body.

Vitamin K2 plays a key role in bone health. Every eight to twelve years, your skeletal system remodels itself, replacing older bone cells with newer ones. This process involves specialized bone cells known as osteoclasts, which build up new bone, and osteoblasts, which break down older pieces of bone. Osteoblasts require a protein that is dependent upon vitamin K2 to bind calcium to the bone matrix to support healthy bone mineralization. The bone-forming activities need to be greater than the bone breakdown to maintain a healthy bone structure. Without adequate amounts of vitamin K2, this process becomes unbalanced, and bones get broken down faster than they’re replaced. Menaquinone 7 helps support healthy bone formation, ensuring that the bone-regeneration process has the components it needs to keep bone absorption greater than bone reabsorption. Vitamin K2 alone promotes arterial function, but when paired with vitamin D3, additional health benefits are observed. Vitamin K2 helps to release calcium that may begin to accumulate along arterial walls, while vitamin D3 takes them to places where they can be used, such as onto the bone. This partnership is why it is recommended to pair vitamin D3 with Menaquinone 7.
