How K2-D3 Works
There are three forms of dietary supplement vitamin K: synthetic K1 (phylloquinone), K2 (menaquinone) as synthetic MK-4, and natural MK-7. The naturally-occurring fat-soluble vitamin K, discovered in 1929 and named from (Koagulation vitamin, is found either in the form of K1 (phylloquinone), derived from food sources such as soybeans and green leafy vegetables, or K2 (menaquinone) of bacterial origin.
Structural differences between these two natural forms impact the bioavailability and bioactivity. Whereas vitamin K1 has a short serum half-life with only 10-20% of the vitamin K1 absorbed from food even reaching circulation, the long side-chain of vitamin K2, allows it to bind with other fat particles in circulation enhancing its half-life and ability to reach peripheral tissue. Although both forms reach the liver, most of the K1 is used at this site to secure coagulation, with little left over to support the body's needs elsewhere. K2 is also transported to extrahepatic soft tissue, bones, and arteries.
Outside the liver, vitamin K is needed for calcium utilization. It activates osteocalcin, the protein needed to bind calcium to the mineral matrix in bone. The vitamin may decrease bone resorption by reducing the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 or Interleukin 6 by osteoclasts. Vitamin K lowers the risk of cardiovascular-related damage by participating in the carboxylation of the most potent inhibitor of arterial calcification known, Matrix GLA Protein (MGP). Researchers have demonstrated that supplementation with the vitamin reduces arterial/aortic calcifi cation.
Vitamin K is a potent antioxidant, is anti-inflammatory, and participates in the induction of apoptosis. Vitamin K and vitamin D share some similar characteristics and are believed to act synergistically.
The ratio between carboxylated and uncarboxylated osteocalcin can be used as a determinant for vitamin K status.
