VITAMIN K2 AGAINST COMMON DISEASES
Numerous studies prove a positive correlation of vitamin K2 menaquinone (all-trans MK-7) on the cardiovascular system as well as bone formation in humans. At the same time, arteriosclerosis and osteoporosis are widespread in the population. Causes of osteoporosis can be genetic or hormonal dispositions as well as diet or lack of exercise. Arteriosclerosis is caused by damage to the inner wall of vessels and arteries, as a result of which arteries narrow due to deposits at these sites. It is widely known that elevated cholesterol levels, diabetes, high blood pressure or nicotine are risk factors for vascular calcification. In certain cases, however, an excess of calcium in the blood can also lead to sclerosis of the vessels. This reduces the flexibility of the blood vessels and increases the risk of secondary diseases.
Vitamin K2 activates the formation of certain proteins in the body that regulate calcium metabolism. These primarily cause the storage of calcium in the bones. This increases the stability of the bones and fills the calcium stores. Calcium deposits in the arteries can also be avoided in this way. As a result, the risks of blood clots, pulmonary embolisms, heart attacks and strokes can be reduced.
VITAMIN K2 FOR YOUR PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS
Vitamin K2 can certainly be found in foods such as aged cheese, sauerkraut or fermented beans. However, the highly bio available MK-7 trans-form is only present in small amounts even in a balanced diet. The reason for this lies mainly in today's industrialized food production. Therefore, the supplementation of vitamin K2 is beneficial for the human body.
The use of vitamin K2 in pharmaceutical products is more relevant than ever. In already existing formulations, the highly bio available MK7-transform of vitamin K2 can ideally support the body in staying healthy as well as vital in the long run.
