Quite simply, vitamin K keeps calcium in the bones and out of the arteries.
Super K provides vitamin K in three synergistic forms to provide the health support you need.
- 1000 mcg Vitamin K1—the naturally occurring form of vitamin K in vegetables. Research suggests that 1-2 mg daily is ideal for promoting optimal function of the GLA proteins, which safely direct calcium in the body.
- 1000 mcg Vitamin K2 (MK-4) — the highly bioavailable form. Intestinal bacteria produce vitamin K2, therefore a reduced microbial count in the gut will compromise vitamin K2 production. Also, poor conversion of K1 to K2 in some people makes supplementation with K2 (MK-4) important.
- 50 mcg Vitamin K2 (MK-7) — this form of vitamin K is produced by food fermentation and has the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day, providing a continuous source of vitamin K in between supplementation dosages.
All forms of vitamin K are fat soluble and should be taken with a meal. Sunflower lecithin was added to enhance absorption.
*Super K is contraindicated in people on warfarin (Coumadin).
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day with a meal, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
