Mega Vitamin K2
High Potency for Strong Bones
45000 mcg (45 mg), 30 capsules
Encourage healthy bone density with clinically-studied dosage
Vitamin K2 is essential to maintaining strong, healthy bones. Here's why: studies show that 45,000 mcg (45 mg) of a special form of K2 (menaquinone-4) is especially effective at encouraging healthy bone mineral density.
Vitamin K (specifically vitamin K2) encourages the cellular activity of osteoblasts—specialized cells that regulate the mineralization of your bone matrix, the lattice-like support structure that bone is built upon. This helps maintain healthy bone density. And clinical studies show that 45,000 mcg of vitamin K2 as menaquinone-4 is especially effective.
Healthy bone mineral density is dependent on vitamin K2, which helps encourage mineralization of your bone matrix.
Mega Vitamin K2 High Potency for Strong Bones Benefits
Bone density loss over time
During development, your bones go through a growth phase until they reach a peak bone mass where remodeling and upkeep occurs. But, this process begins to decline naturally over time and leads to age-related bone density loss. But studies show that the right kind of vitamin K2 (menaquinone-4), in the right dose, can help maintain healthy bone density.
Vitamin K is essential for bone mineralization. This bone-friendly nutrient is a cofactor for the carboxylation of osteocalcin, a protein produced by osteoblasts that is responsible for binding calcium and depositing it in the bone. This processed is called bone mineralization.
Why is this important? Because if you're not getting enough K2, osteocalcin doesn't undergo carboxylation and remains in its inactive form, which means it cannot bind to calcium and play its role in bone formation.
Bone density and menopause
Women go through a rapid phase of bone loss during menopause, in addition to normal, age-related bone loss—which happens at roughly the same rate as men. But studies of postmenopausal women showed that taking vitamin K2 helped maintain and even increase bone mineral density.
If you're concerned about maintaining bone strength and healthy bone density, consider adding Mega Vitamin K2 High Potency for Strong Bones to your daily regimen. It delivers 45,000 mcg (45 mg) of vitamin K2 (menaquinone-4) in every dose, the same amount shown to support bone mineral density.
