Vitamin K is an essential vitamin needed for cardiovascular, bone and liver health. Vitamin K2 is more effective than vitamin K1, the form found in plants, for these specific health effects. There are two effective and popular forms of vitamin K2: MK-4 and MK-7. While MK-4 is the active form of vitamin K2 used by the body and has been used clinically in Japan for decades with good results, MK-7 has also shown good results at low doses and sustained release. AOR's Vitamin K2 offers a 50/50 blend of MK-4 and MK-7 to ensure the best of both worlds.

The most popular, albeit recently highlighted, use for vitamin K2 is for bone health. Vitamin K, along with vitamin D, is essential for calcium absorption and utilization in bones. Vitamin K2 also stimulates the synthesis of proteins that regulate bone growth, and has been shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures and improve bone quality.

Vitamin K is also essential for cardiovascular health. It is an important blood clotting factor: without sufficient amounts, the risk of bruising and excessive bleeding increases considerably. Likewise, vitamin K improves the absorption of calcium in the bones, preventing arterial calcification and promoting healthy blood vessels and a healthy heart. Ultimately, vitamin K2 is an excellent complement to conventional osteoporosis medications and is essential for those taking calcium supplements.

Vitamin K2 may also be useful for people with a family history of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, arterial calcification, or for people who die or bleed easily.
