Optimal dose of vitamin K2 in the best-available form. Vitamin K2 is wrongly associated with blood clotting. This is a key substance for the regulation of calcium in the body, so you should make sure to maintain its proper level. Vitamin K2 supplementation is essential if we take vitamin D3. Without Vitamin K2, it can be counterproductive (i.e.. The calcium paradox) - calcium is not used in the body where it should be, but accumulates in the arteries and its deposits can be dangerous for our health. To prevent such problems, simply take 1 capsule daily with a meal. To strengthen the effects of the product, you should also combine it with vitamin C.

What is Vitamin K2?
Vitamin K2 belongs to fat-soluble vitamins It is an important activator of many enzymes and proteins It shows a positive action on calcium balance by activating MGP protein and osteocalcin. This results in the removal of calcium deposits from blood vessel walls and transport of ions of this element to the area where it fulfills its function – teeth and bones. It reduces therefore the calcification of blood vessels and thus the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, it is a constituent of coagulation factors and cosequently prevents haemorrhages. It shows a synergistic action in combination with vitamin D and magnesium.
Vitamin K2 in the form of a dietary supplement of renowned brands e.g. Now Foods, Swanson, Life Extension, Jarrow Formulas and Thorne Research) can be found in formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is menaquinone?
Menaquinone is the term used for vitamin K2. It appears in short- and long-chain forms, the most popular of which are MK-4 and MK-7, containing respectively 4 and 7 isoprene residues in the side chains.
Vitamin K2 exhibits the widest spectrum of its activity by means of osteocalcin, which it has the ability to activate. By means of this hormone produced by bone cells, it may support the state of mineral density of bones and the condition of blood vessels and lower the risk of circulatory diseases. An interesting property of this vitamin is stimulation of Leydig cells to synthesize testosterone, which will be of interest especially to men. K2 also has neuroprotective properties, protecting from excitotoxicity caused by glutamate and oxidative stress from glutathione deficiency. Osteocalcin may also increase adiponectin release from fatty cells, thanks to which it is possible to achieve better insulin sensitivity and decrease inflammations.
Menaquinone is contained in dietary supplements available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
