INGREDIENT INFORMATION
Supports bone mineralisation
Vitamin D and calcium have been well researched for their role in bone health. Vitamin D is necessary to absorb calcium from the digestive tract, and calcium is necessary to build and maintain strong bones. But it has now been established that Vitamin K2 plays an equally important role in maintaining strong, healthy bones. It does this by making sure calcium stays in the bones and doesn’t leak back into the blood stream through the effect it has on the osteocalcin – a protein that binds calcium.

Studies have demonstrated that vitamin K2 can help improve bone mineral density in people with osteoporosis, and also can help reduce fracture rates.1 Vitamin K2 insufficiency is associated with low bone mineral density and increased fractures.

Supports bone health
Vitamin K2 supplementation has been shown to improve the bone turnover and improve bone health,2 to slow down the rate of bone weakening after menopause and to decrease the number of fractures in women with osteoporosis. It is also thought to boost the effectiveness of osteoporosis medications.3,4
