Super K with Advanced K2 Complex, Vitamin K
Super K with Advanced K2 Complex provides both Vitamin K1 and two forms of Vitamin K2 known as menaquinone-4 and menaquinone-7
Vitamin K1 is obtained in the diet primarily from dark leafy vegetables (lettuce, spinach,kale, collard greens, and broccoli). Vitamin K1 is not absorbed particularly well from food, but is absorbed very well taken as a supplement with meals. Vitamin K1 is the form involved in healthy blood clotting, and also has anti-inflammatory effects through which it helps prevent excessive bone loss.
Vitamin K2 (menaquinones) is found in meat, eggs, and dairy products and also made by bacteria in the human gut but only in fairly small amounts. Vitamin K2, which activates osteocalcin, the Matrix Gla protein responsible for moving calcium into bone, is the best form for protecting against osteoporosis.
Recent studies have shown that vitamin K2 is absorbed up to ten times more than K1. Vitamin K2 is more efficient than K1 because it remains in circulation longer and is active in more tissues. For instance, the liver rapidly clears K1 within eight hours, whereas measurable levels of K2 have been detected 72 hours after ingestion. Salicylates,such as aspirin, can block vitamin K,..so use with care.
Studies have also shown that vitamin K regulates several biochemical processes including blood coagulation, bone mineralization, and vascular health.
