Protects the heart and maintains bone health. Vitamin K2 is essential for correct calcium metabolism: It keeps calcium where it belongs – in the bones and out of the blood vessels. Calcium in the blood builds up as hard deposits (plaque) on the inside lining of the blood vessels, leading to hardened and narrowed arteries which can result in stroke or heart attack. Vitamin K2 removes calcium from blood vessel deposits, taking it to the bones, where it is needed. Recent research shows that vitamin K2 may be more effective than even chelation therapy, at reversing calcium build-up in the blood vessels, thereby reducing heart disease. SOLAL’s Vitamin K2 contains effective vitamin K2, not the less effective K1 form, in both of its active forms, MK-4 and MK-7, unlike other K2 products which contain only one form.
Product Indications
There are two active forms of vitamin K2, MK-4 and MK-7. Vitamin K2 is essential for correct calcium metabolism: It keeps calcium where it belongs -in the bones and out of the blood vessels.

Pharmacological Action
Vitamin K are a group of compounds with a similar ring structure. The varying side chains differentiate the compounds in terms of intestinal absorption, transport, tissue distribution and bioavailability. Vitamin K2 is a group of menaquinones (MK). The most biological active forms are MK-7 and MK-4. MK-7 is normally synthesised by bacteria in the colon. Vitamin K2 is transported with both LDL- and triacylglycerol-rich fractions of plasma lipoproteins, reaching the liver and many extrahepatic tissues. Some population research suggests that higher dietary intake of vitamin K2, especially the MK-4 fraction, is associated with a reduced risk of coronary calcification and mortality from coronary heart disease. Research suggests that vitamin K2 supplementation has a greater effect in reducing the risk of coronary calcification and mortality from coronary heart disease compared to vitamin K1.

Product Interactions
Warfarin: Vitamin K antagonizes the effects of oral anticoagulants such as warfarin. Excessive vitamin K intake, either from supplements or from changes in the diet, can reduce the anticoagulant effect, use under the supervision of a medical practitioner. Note however, there is also evidence that suggests that modest supplementation of vitamin K adds to long-term stability of blood coagulation.
Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
Safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established, do not use.
