The role of vitamin K has for the past decade been linked to two of the most important health topics, bone health and cardiovascular health. It has long been known that vitamin K is required for good coagulation of the blood and recent research shows that vitamin K – and especially vitamin K2 – plays several other important roles in the body.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN K2
Recent studies show that natural-source vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) may help to maintain the elasticity of the arteries and support the health of the vascular system. Additionally, vitamin K2 impacts on the body’s use of calcium, which is important for bone building and maintaining strong bones.

REGULARLY EAT SOY PRODUCTS. SHOULD I STILL TAKE MENAQ7?
Soy itself contains only a limited quantity of vitamin K. However, natto, made from soy that has been fermented with Bacillus subtilis natto (bacterium) is rich in vitamin K2 and especially the MK 7 form. MenaQ7 contains a natto extract providing Vitamin K2 and thus can help safeguard dietary intake of this valuable form of Vitamin K.

MenaQ7 can be used while breast feeding. However, using a vitamin K supplement during breast feeding increases the quantity of vitamin K in breast milk slightly which also benefits the baby.
