Vitamin K plays an important role in the human body, assisting with blood clotting, metabolising calcium, and supporting heart health. One of, if not its most important role, is to regulate calcium deposits. One can think of Vitamin K as being the traffic officer that sends calcium to the bones for bone mineralisation, rather than allowing it to congest in the blood vessels and kidneys, which can lead to many health conditions due to calcification of the blood vessels and kidneys. Our Sally-Ann Creed® Vitamin K2 is in the form of menaquinone-7 (MK-7), which is a highly bioavailable form of Vitamin K2 for the body, resulting in optimal absorption.
Benefits may include:
-Protection against vascular disease through the promotion of cardiovascular health
-Improved bone density and overall bone health due to assistance with calcium metabolism
–Protection against osteoporosis
-Improved dental health
-Assistance with blood clotting and wound healing
Vitamin K is an essential vitamin necessary for many functions within the body, most notably blood clotting and calcium deposit regulation. It can be divided into two groups, Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and Vitamin K2 (menaquinone). Vitamin K1 is found predominantly in leafy greens and is quite different to vitamin K2, which is found in animal products and fermented foods. Vitamin K1 does not seem to exhibit the same qualities as vitamin K2.
Symptoms of a Vitamin K2 deficiency may include:
-Excessive bleeding and increased time needed for blood clotting and wound healing
-Being prone to bruising easily
-Reduced bone mineralisation, often resulting in osteoporosis
