Several studies have highlighted the benefits of vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 for all ages
From childhood to old age, vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK7) plays an important role in maintaining bone and cardiovascular health by regulating calcium in the body, keeping it from soft tissues, such as arteries and driving it to bones.
VitaMK7 is the only European vitamin K2 as MK7, produced naturally through a patented fermentation process and is a safe and effective solution to protecting the health of women and men, from childhood to old age.
Bone metabolism in children and adolescents is highly active in comparison to adults. In children who lack adequate vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK7), calcium cannot be processed in the body to build healthy and strong bones. An observational study of healthy peripubertal children showed that an improvement in the status of vitamin K over two years was associated with a marked increase in bone mineral density.
Maximum skeletal mass is achieved in young adults aged 18-25 years old. As a matter of fact, up to 90% of peak bone mass is acquired during this period. Youth is one of the most important periods for maintaining an adequate amount of vitamin K2. This can be achieved by supplementing with vitaMK7.
Vitamin K2 is an important nutrient for women in all stages of life. Vitamin K2 may even strengthen the effects of calcium and vitamin D supplements in postmenopausal women.
In young women the bone mass and strength achieved at the end of the growth period plays an essential role in the risk of osteoporotic fractures occurring in adulthood.
The function of vitamin K2 is unique, because vitamin K2 channels dietary calcium to the places that need it most. A deficiency in vitamin K2 has been associated with increased calcium deposition and coronary artery calcification, however calcium obtained from vitamin K2 as MK7 protects arteries and blood vessels from calcification and drives calcium to bones.
An increasing number of ageing-associated diseases are related to vitamin K2 deficiency. Vitamin K2 is crucial for bone health and several studies have demonstrated its role in helping to treat osteoporosis. Vitamin K2 is also associated with easing arterial stiffening, meaning that increased vitamin K2 intake could lower calcium-associated health risks. In the brain vitamin K2 also acts as an antioxidant: vitamin K-dependent proteins are now known to play key roles in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
