Healthy Blood Vessels, Heart & Bones
We know that Vitamin K is essential for normal blood clotting and for
building and maintaining strong, healthy bones. But latest research suggests
that a special form of Vitamin K, called menaquinone-7 (K2), may play
an important role in blood vessel and heart health too. By supporting
healthy blood vessels, Vitamin K2 may maintain optimum blood circulation
– essential for healthy heart function. And K2 is now thought to
be even more helpful in contributing to the normal structure of bone than
K2 is highly bioavailable and bioactive, and remains in the blood for
longer than K1. This means the body’s reserves can be built up and
tissues supplied continuously. And unlike Vitamin K1, Vitamin K2 is safe
to take with blood thinning medication, at the suggested daily intake.
An excellent food source of Vitamin K2 is natto (fermented soya beans)
- not a common Western dietary choice. Cheese and curd are also good sources,
but people following a heart-health diet are recommended to reduce such
foods in their diet, and they’re usually high in salt. Higher Nature's
Vitamin K2 is sourced from natto and is patent protected.
The optimal daily intake as determined by research is 45µg - more
is not necessary.
One tablet typically provides:
45µg Vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7).
