K2 Study: A Groundbreaking Heart Development

A recognized risk factor for poor cardiovascular health, arterial stiffening is caused by several mechanisms, among them elastin breakdown and microcalcification; unfortunate results of aging. But arterial calcification is actually an actively regulated process. Yet Matrix Gla Protein (MGP), the most potent vascular calcification inhibitor, can only fulfill its protecting role if the body has adequate Vitamin K2 to activate it.

Previous data suggest a strong link between Vitamin K2 intake and cardiovascular health, but a newly published MenaQ7® study confirms the nutrient’s essential role.
