MK-7 Source from Natto Bean To help in the maintenance of bones.
Many of us know the vital roles that calcium, magnesium and vitamin D play in bone health, but there’s actually another nutrient that hasn’t quite received its fair share of glory – yet! Vitamin K is essential for building strong bones by routing calcium exactly where it needs to go. Think of vitamin K as the vehicle that transports calcium to its rightful home: It ensures that calcium ends up in our bones rather than in our arteries, and as such is being studied for its role in cardiovascular health.
The two main forms of vitamin K in the body are vitamin K1, found in plant foods, and vitamin K2, found in fermented foods and animal products. Vitamin K2 is thought to be far better absorbed by the body and remain in the blood stream longer than vitamin K1.
Health First offers the most highly bioavailable MK-7 form of vitamin K2 sourced from natto, a fermented soybean naturally high in this valuable nutrient.
