PureHeart K2D -
*Maintains healthy vascular calcium homeostasis to support cardiovascular function
What Is It?
Vitamin K includes a group of compounds that contain a central ring structure
with varying side chains. These differing side chains account for differences
in absorption, bioavailability, transport and tissue distribution. Vitamin K
phylloquinone, is the most common form and is found in plants and green
vegetables. Vitamin K
(MK-7) is less common and found primarily in fermented
soy. Studies indicate that while vitamin K
is primarily concentrated in the liver,
(MK-7) is concentrated in extra-hepatic tissues, including vascular
tissues, allowing for targeted support. MK-7 also has a longer half-life.*
Uses For PureHeart™ K
menaquinone-7 (MK-7) promotes healthy
vascular calcium homeostasis and cardiovascular function. In a systematic
review involving 5 studies, higher intakes of vitamin K
were associated with
cardiovascular health. Research indicates that it supports the carboxylation
of matrix Gla-protein (MGP), a key protein involved in calcium balance.
Unlike vitamin K
, which concentrates in bone, MK-7 concentrates in vascular
tissue where it supports healthy arterial blood flow and vascular elasticity. In
an observational study involving 564 postmenopausal women, higher intake
of vitamin K
was associated with healthy calcium balance in the vascular
tissue. Optimal serum levels of vitamin D are also important to maintain
healthy calcium balance in vascular tissues, in part by supporting the activity
of MGP. Studies indicate that the combination of vitamin K and D provides
What Is The Source?
