What is vitamin K2 good for?
The K in vitamin K stands for koagulation (Danish spelling) because vitamin K helps the blood coagulate. Vitamin K also interacts with calcium and vitamin D in the body by helping to maintain a normal bone structure and bone density. Calcium maintains bone structure, while vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium from food, and vitamin K helps regulate how the calcium is used in the body.
Vitamin K is naturally present in green leafy vegetables, eggs, and liver, and, to some extent, it can also be produced in our intestinal flora. Vitamin K is found in different forms; K1 (phylloquinone) is mainly found in vegetable sources, while K2 (menaquinone) is found in animal sources. Healthwell Vitamin K2 200 contains menaquinone-7, corresponding to natural vitamin K.
Vitamin K2 should not be combined with supplements if you are taking blood thinners, unless your physician has prescribed otherwise. This is because vitamin K2 promotes blood coagulation and thus may reduce the effect of blood thinners.
