There’s more than one kind of vitamin K. And foods rich in naturally-occurring vitamin K often have several of those forms, such as the vitamin K2 sub-types called menaquinones. Super K Elite delivers a variety of vitamin K forms closer to what you’d find in food, at the clinically studied dosages designed to give you the optimum health benefits.
Vitamin K promotes healthy calcium balance
Vitamin K helps inhibit calcification in your arteries and promotes healthy calcium absorption into your bones.1,2 This is called a healthy calcium balance. This formula contains 2,000 mcg of vitamin K1, the same dosage found to encourage heart health in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial.3
Vitamin K2 – what are menaquinones?
Vitamin K2 comes in several forms, collectively known as menaquinones.4 K2 also has been shown to support both heart health and bone health with different sub-forms having been studied for different roles. Primarily derived from high-fat foods,5,6 these heart and bone friendly sub-forms are called MK-4, MK-6, MK-7 and MK-9 respectively.7
MK-9 promotes cardiovascular health, according to an eight-year epidemiological study in over 16,000 women.8 This supplement provides 11 mcg of MK-6 and 43 mcg of MK-9, because these new rock-stars of the vitamin K2 world are effective in very small amounts.
This is a good thing, because you’d need to ingest over ¾ pound of cheddar cheese, to get the equivalent MK-6 and over ¼ pound of cheddar to get as much MK-9.9
Trans -MK-7 helps maintain arterial flexibility.10,11 This supplement delivers 181 mcg, the same dosage studied in double-blind, placebo-controlled trials measuring cardiovascular health.10,12
MK-4 promotes bone health by helping to get calcium into the bone matrix.13,14 This supplement delivers 1,500 mcg, the same dosage shown to promote healthy bone density in two clinical studies.13,14
Convenient Vitamin K
You may be looking for a cheddar cheese comparison for MK-4 and MK-7. Well, here it is: you’d need to eat over 17 pounds to get this much MK-7 … and over 32 pounds of cheddar cheese to get this much MK-4.9 Gives a whole new definition to the meaning of cheesy.
