MK-7 helps shuttle calcium out of your bloodstream and into your bones
Calcium is extremely important for your bones, but presents a little-known yet serious impact on your heart health by collecting on blood vessel walls. If you’re taking calcium supplements, MK-7 is a must!
The good news is a special, highly absorbable form of vitamin K2 called MK-7 helps move the calcium from your bloodstream and shuttle it to your bones, where it’s needed to build strength and durability. And with Healthy Directions’ MK-7, you’re getting the full recommended dose (180 mcg) of K2.
Formulated with the most bioavailable and effective form of K2
If your multivitamin includes vitamin K, it's K1, NOT K2. And even if it is K2, it's highly unlikely that it's the MK-7 form of K2—the most bioavailable and beneficial form for your cardiovascular system and your bones. While K1 is found commonly in leafy vegetables and plays a role in normal blood clotting, only 10% of the vitamin K1 in these foods is absorbed by your body. In addition, K1 does not stay in your body anywhere near as long as K2. And it's only K2 that's been studied for effectively helping to keep calcium out of your blood and blood vessels.
A full recommended dose for optimal absorption
There are a lot of K2 products available that contain less than 180 mcg of MK-7. Instead, many of these supplements use blends that are actually predominantly MK-4, the cheaper, far less active relative of MK-7. The Healthy Directions MK-7 formula gives you the full recommended dose (180 mcg) of the most effective form of vitamin K2 you need every day to support bone and cardiovascular health.

Science and Quality
Vitamin K functions in the body to modify certain proteins that ensure proper calcium utilization in the bones and cardiovascular system.
Vitamin K2 is more bioavailable than K1 and has a longer half-life (how long it remains in the bloodstream), which allows for a greater tissue distribution than vitamin K1. Because of these factors, vitamin K2 is better at promoting a healthy cardiovascular system by optimizing calcium utilization, which in turn keeps calcium in the bones and out of the arteries.
