What is NATTOMK-7™?
Vesta Menaquinone-7 (known as Vitamin K2: MK-7) is a highly bioavailable extract of Natto, a traditional food dish. Derived from fermented soybeans, and a significant amount of MK-7 is produced during the fermentation process. Another one of the most commonly found forms of Vitamin K is Vitamin K1, which is generally found in food products. However, Vitamin K2: MK-7 from Natto is absorbed ten times better than Vitamin K1 from food products.
MK-7 functions mainly as a co-factor for the enzyme gamma-glutamylcarboxylase, which is responsible for the carboxylation and binding of calcium to specific bone proteins. Research shows that MK-7 regulates calcium in the arteries as well. Thus, MK-7 ultimately supports heart health and bone health at the same time.
Benefits of NATTOMK-7™
Natural MK-7 is essential for yielding high quality and efficacy of finished product.
Helps regulate calcium levels in bones and arteries.
Vitamin K2: MK-7 has the highest bioavailability and bioactivity of all Vitamin K vitamers.
Why is Vitamin K2:MK-7 necessary?
MK-7 regulates calcium through an amino acid that is part of the matrix glaprotein (a calcium-regulating protein), which is dependent on MK-7 to function properly. If the protein does not contain enough MK-7, it will not be able to retain calcium through carboxylation. Without MK-7, the calcium does not get directed to the areas where it is needed, such as the bones, and instead, calcium moves out into the bloodstream and deposits in arteries and other soft tissue. MK-7 ensures that the calcium is directed and retained in the bones at normal, healthy levels.
MK-7 is unique because, unlike synthetic vitamin K (such as Vitamin K3), it displays no toxicity, and it does not concentrate in the liver. MK-7 helps promote a healthy cardiovascular system and may help to maintain healthy bones, joints and arteries.
How does MK-7 support healthy bones?
Bone mineral density is directly related to the amount of MK-7 that is present within the body.
