|Research highlights the importance of vitamin K and its critical role in maintaining bone and cardiovascular health. |
Vitamin K is required for the proper utilization of calcium and helps bind newly absorbed calcium to the bone matrix. Vitamin K helps maintain bone mineral density by decreasing the activity of osteoclasts, cells which break down bone.
It also provides critical cardiovascular protection by activating matrix Gla protein (MGP), a potent inhibitor of circulatory calcification.
|Vitamin K works in synergy with vitamin D to support and maintain bone and cardiovascular health. |
Current research has found high concentration supplementation, at 180 µg/day, results in improved clinical results compared to lower-dose supplementation.
