Jarrow MK-7 contains pure Menaquinone-7, a non-GMO extract of vitamin K2. This form of vitamin K is highly bioavailable, almost ten times as much as the vitamin K1 found naturally in spinach. Menaquinone-7 vitamin K2 is essential in building and strengthening bone tissue as well as in promoting optimal cardiovascular health through increasing arterial elasticity. Vitamin K2 has also been shown to support healthy skin, immune system health and regular blood glucose levels.
Vitamin K can be found in three forms, K1, K2 and K3. Vitamin K1 consists of phylloquinones, mostly found in green, leafy vegetables. Vitamin K3, menadione, is a non-organic derivative of vitamin K and is not recommended for regular human consumption. Vitamin K2, menaquinone-7, is naturally made in your body and has been shown to possess health benefits similar to that of vitamin D, affecting many different body systems to promote overall health. If you think you may be vitamin K deficient and are looking to strengthen your bones and improve your cardiovascular system, Jarrow MK-7 is the perfect vitamin K supplement for you.
