Pharmacological Action

Pharmacological Action

The K vitamins are a group of essential, fat soluble, nutritional compounds with a similar ring structure. The varying side chains differentiate the compounds in terms of intestinal absorption, transport, tissue distribution and bioavailability. Vitamin K2 is a group of menaquinones (MK). The most biological active forms are MK-7 and MK-4. MK-7 is normally synthesised by bacteria in the colon. Vitamin K2 is transported with both LDL- and triacylglycerol-rich fractions of plasma lipoproteins, reaching the liver and many extra-hepatic tissues.

Vitamin K2 supports the development and maintenance of bones and teeth by enhancing calcium and phosphorus absorption and use. Vitamin K2 is essential for correct calcium metabolism: It keeps calcium where it belongs - in the bones and out of the blood vessels. Some population research suggests that higher dietary intake of vitamin K2, especially the MK-4 fraction, is associated with a reduced risk of coronary calcification (plaque build-up) and mortality (death) from coronary heart disease. Research suggests that vitamin K2 supplementation has a greater effect in reducing the risk of coronary calcification and mortality from coronary heart disease compared to vitamin K1.
