MenaQ7, the natural vitamin K2, the future of healthcare

The two most important forms found in food are vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and Vitamin K2 (menaquinone).


K vitamins are a group of fat-soluble vitamins. The two most important forms found in food are vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and Vitamin K2 (menaquinone). Vitamin K1 is known for its role in blood coagulation (clotting). Vitamin K2 also contributes to coagulation, but more importantly, it is a form newly recognized for its essential role in building and maintaining strong bones and inhibiting calcium deposits in the arteries and blood vessels.

Supplemental Vitamin K2 exists in several forms, but the most common ones are synthetic menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and the natural and nature-identical synthetic menaquinone-7 (MK-7).

MK-7 is the superior form of vitamin K

All K vitamins are similar in structure, but differ in the length of the “side chain” – the longer the side chain, the better effect, and efficiency. Consequently, the long-chain menaquinones (especially MK-7) are the most desirable as they are nearly completely absorbed (the body requires smaller doses) and stay in the blood for the longest time. This makes Vitamin K2 also available for tissues outside the liver, namely bones, arteries, and soft tissues.
