What is Vitamin K2 MK-7?
Vitamin K2 MK-7 is a long-chain form of vitamin K2 (menaquinone) containing 7 isoprene residues in the side chain. It is a vitamin soluble in fats. It is usually applied to complement the supplementation with vitamin D in order to achieve the synergy of effect and reduce possible undesirable effects.
It exerts the strongest influence on bones and circulatory system. The most significant role of vitamin K2 MK-7 is the activation of osteocalcin – a hormone produced by bones, which among others takes part in transporting calcium to bones and teeth. Thanks to this, it increases mineral density of bones and limits the risk of storing calcium in soft tissues, such as blood vessels, reducing at the same time the probability of developing atherosclerosis.
Other health benefits are based on the possibility of testosterone level growth, thanks to stimulating Leydig cells in testicles and neuroprotective properties, protecting nervous system against degeneration and development of dementia.
