Provides the most beneficial form of Vitamin K2, as Menaquinone-7 (MK-7), now recognized for its critical role in regulating the proper utilization of Calcium and thereby, ensuring healthy bone retention and discouraging the calcification of critical cardiovascular tissues.
ANDREW LESSMAN'S Vitamin K2 MK-7 240 provides the most active and beneficial form of Vitamin K-2 Menaquinone-7 (MK-7). Vitamin K2 MK-7 is now recognized as essential for bone and heart health through its role in regulating Calcium metabolism. The “K” in Vitamin K2 MK-7's name stems from the role of Vitamin K-1 in blood clotting, since it was discovered in Germany where “Koagulation” is spelled with a K. Vitamin K-2 MK-7's unique importance instead relates to its scientifically established central role in calcium utilization and thus bone, heart and cardiovascular health. Essentially, Vitamin K2 MK-7 promotes the retention of calcium in healthy bone while discouraging its being deposited in other tissues causing undesirable calcification of arteries, heart valves, etc. By discouraging calcification, Vitamin K2 MK-7 promotes flexible, resilient arteries and heart valves, which is a defining characteristic of cardiovascular health. In short, K2 MK-7 acts like a “traffic cop” directing calcium to the vital tissues where it is required while keeping it out of those where it is not desired. Since we all must consume calcium daily our healthy bones and flexible arteries require K2 MK-7. Sadly, there is no significant source of Vitamin K2 MK-7 in the typical American diet making supplementation the only reliable method of acquiring this essential vitamin. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Consume one or more capsules daily or as recommended by a health care professional. As with any dietary supplement, this product is most effective when used as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle, along with a daily multi-vitamin-mineral formula.

I like the idea of vitamin K2 MK-7 aiding in the prevention of heart disease and lowering the risk of osteoporosis.
