Cardiovascular Benefits - Risk Reduction of Calcification

Vitamin K2 acts as a co-factor for activation of Matrix Gla Protein (MGP), located in the cartilage and smooth muscle cells of the vascular system. In its activated form, MGP is known as the strongest inhibitor of soft tissue calcification, including cartilage mineralization.

Significant Risk Reduction of Cardiovascular Disease

Studies have proven that Vitamin K2 MK-7 dramatically reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and early mortality when taken daily (The Rotterdam Study – 2004). This makes K2VITAL® an important ingredient in the fight against heart disease, stroke and other CVDs. K2VITAL® also supports healthy levels of blood circulation by reducing the risk of arterial calcium deposits recently associated with (supplemented) calcium intake.

The Rotterdam Study

Intake of vitamin K in food
4807 Dutch men and women followed for 8-11 years

Hence, use of K2VITAL® not only offers a strong proposition for good heart health, but can assist calcium supplements and fortified food products by combatting the potential side effects of arterial calcification.
