Please note:"Super K Advanced K2 Complex" has been renamed and is now called “Super K”
Health Benefits at a Glance:
Vitamin K1, K2, MK-4 and MK-7 found in Super K with Advanced K2 Complex can contribute to fighting against age-related calcification of arteries and your heart, and can simultaneously promote bone health.
Why it Works:
Vitamin K supports bones and fights arterial calcification [1-5] but it can be difficult to sustain sufficient Vitamin K. If you are on a diet which limits your intake of Vitamin K rich food sources such as meat, egg yolks, dairy, and leafy green vegetables, taking a Vitamin K supplement is essential to your health.
Furthermore, Super K with Advanced K2 Complex makes it easier to get enough Vitamin K. It does this by including two forms of Vitamin K2, MK-4 and MK-7. The MK-4 form is the most rapidly absorbed type of vitamin K. Combining these two forms of vitamin K2 provides both rapid and sustained absorption of this critical nutrient, so your healthy blood levels are maintained throughout the day. This K2 complex, plus a strong dose of K1, makes this comprehensive formula an excellent way to get your vitamin K.
The Science Behind the Product:
Sometimes it can be challenging to obtain enough vitamin K2 through the diet. However, the effects of getting sufficient amounts of Vitamin K should not be underestimated. Researchers in Rotterdam conducted a large clinical trial study on heart health, about vitamin K2. 4,800 study participants were enrolled in the seven-year-long study [6,8]. It was revealed that people with proper intake of vitamin K2 had a 57% lower chance of dying from heart disease when compared to people who consumed much less vitamin K2. [6,8].
