Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone) is a type of Vitamin K. This vitamin can contribute to normal blood clotting, therefore a lack of Vitamin K can lead to unwanted bleeding. Another health benefit of this Vitamin is that it contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. Vitamin K can be found in many foods, such as: milk, spinach, cabbage and other green vegetables. Vitamin K is a fat soluble Vitamin, fat soluble Vitamins are stored in the body’s fat tissue and can stay there a long time, potentially building to dangerous levels. This is why Vitamin A, D, E and K are found in small doses. There are two types of vitamin K2, short chain menaquinones and long chain menaquinones. MK-4 (menaquinones 4) is an example of a short chain, the biological half-life of MK-4 is approximately 1 hour to an hour and a half. This is significantly shorter than long chain menaquinones. Long chain menaquinones such as MK-7 and MK-9 have biological half-life times of serval days. Our vitamin K2 MK-7 powder is extract from Natto, and the source of this item is Bacillus subtilis natto. This is a natural source of Vitamin K2 and currently the most popular on the market.
