Vitamin K2 MK-7 from the producer JARROW FORMULAS in a dose of 90mcg in 1 capsule. Vitamin activates two proteins called "GLA matrix proteins" and osteocalcin, which actively bind calcium and contribute to the construction and maintenance of bone health. It also improves the health of teeth and heart and strengthens blood clotting.
Vitamin K2 is best known for its role in the proper functioning of the blood coagulation mechanism; however, studies of recent years have shown that it also has a beneficial effect on the health of the bones and the circulatory system. Although calcium is essential for health, its abnormal metabolism can lead to disorders such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. In bone tissue, vitamin K is crucial in the formation of a normal, strong bone matrix. The quality of the bones depends on the presence of the appropriate vitamin K. Studies have also shown that even small amounts of vitamin K2 fight heart disease by controlling calcium regulating proteins in the vascular tissue, keeping calcium away from the arteries and preventing the formation of dangerous calcified plaques. Vitamin K is needed for the production of prothrombin (factor II) in the liver that plays the most important role in blood coagulation. Also other coagulation factors (VII, IX, X) produced in the liver require the presence of vitamin K. With prothrombin deficiency or any of the factors mentioned, the blood coagulates slowly or does not clot at all and even a small cut can cause long-term bleeding. Vitamin K2 is also the most biologically active form of vitamin K. It also has the most beneficial effect on the health of the arteries.
