Specific forms of K2, like MK-7, have a very long half life in
circulation, giving the body a steady supply of vitamin K2 24 hours a day.
Innovite Health's Vitamin K2 contains natural Vitamin K2 in its most
absorbable form to promote optimum bone health and it is the only MK-7
product in Canada free from the synthetic anti-foaming chemical, dimethyl
Vitamin K2 is vital in supporting bone health Inno-Vite\'s Vitamin K2 Drops contains contains the safest and the most effective form of Vitamin K2 as MK-7 and has been shown to be the optimal vitamin K2 product with longer blood half-life (resulting in more stable blood levels) and better effect on bone and cardiovascular health through the activation of osteocalcin and MGP
Better effect on bone and cardiovascular health through the activation of osteocalcin and MGP MGP is the most potent inhibitor of soft tissue calcification currently known. When activated by vitamin K, MGP prevents calcium from building up in the arteries
Vitamin K is required in order to use calcium in the process of creating a healthy bone matrix. It activates a protein called “osteocalcin”, which is involved in the bone-building process. Osteocalcin binds calcium to the bone, thus strengthening the skeleton. Insufficient vitamin K leads to inactive osteocalcin that cannot bind calcium to the surface of the bone. Higher levels of Vitamin K are strongly associated with better bone mass, better bone density, improved bone geometry and improved mineral content. Strong bones developed in childhood and maintained in adulthood reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures.
At the same time, vitamin K activates another protein called MGP – the most potent inhibitor of soft tissue calcification currently known. When activated by vitamin K, MGP prevents calcium from building up in the arteries. Two naturally-occurring forms of vitamin K have been identified, and these are designated as vitamin K1 and K2. Natural Vitamin K2 is the source of vitamin K preferred by all tissues including cartilage, bone and soft tissues.
