K2VITAL delivers optimal activation of
the "tri-essentials" - calcium, vitamin D3
and vitamin K2 MK-7 for superior bone health
The effect of vitamin K2 MK-7 in your body is highly different from the effect of vitamin K1 even though the function of K as K1 or K2 is principally the same. This is because vitamin K1 has very short half-life and rapid excretion and is thus predominantly utilized by the liver for blood coagulating purposes. While sufficient for blood coagulation purposes, the short half- life prevents the vitamin to be re-distributed to extra-hepatic tissues in sufficient amount. Vitamin K1 therefore is found to have very limited cardiovascular or bone health influence.
On the other hand, vitamin K2 MK-7’s long (72 hours) half-life enables the vitamin to be distributed to extra-hepatic tissues and thus affect the cardiovascular health and the bone health.
