- Promotes optimal bone health and proper calcium storage

- Helps to maintain healthy blood sugar metabolism and lipid levels
- May support a healthy and positive mood for women
If you’re looking to support healthy bones, you likely already know about calcium, magnesium and even vitamin D, but there’s another nutrient that plays a key role in the health of your bones and throughout the body: vitamin K2. This important nutrient works to activate proteins that regulate how the body uses calcium. Proper mineralization is essential for both healthy bones and arteries.
Emerging research points to more exciting benefits of vitamin K2, particularly for women. It shows potential to support not only bone mineral density, but also healthy blood sugar metabolism and blood lipid levels already within the normal range. Additionally, it may promote a healthy, positive mood.
Vitamin K is actually a group of several related compounds, classified into two main types, K1 and K2. Out of thirteen different subtypes of vitamin K2 that have been identified, menaquinone-7 has shown great promise for promoting bone strength and cardiovascular health, thanks to its role in regulating calcium transport. K2 helps to activate the proteins that regulate where calcium ends up in the body. This support of proper calcium storage means this essential mineral is directed to the bones and out of the arteries, promoting skeletal and cardiovascular health.
Menaquinone is the most biologically active form of K2 in human physiology. It is found in many foods, including aged cheeses, liver and eggs, but the richest source by far is natto, a traditional Japanese food made from fermented soybeans. Swanson Maximum Strength Vitamin K2 is our highest potency K2 supplement ever, derived from natto made exclusively from non-GMO soybeans. We deliver this fat-soluble vitamin in sunflower oil-based softgels for optimum absorbability.
