MegaQuinone is a high-dose, 100% soy-free formulation of natural vitamin K2 (MK-7) formulated for optimal bone, nerve, and heart health. This formula includes 320 mcg of vitamin K2 with vitamin K1 and chelated minerals for absorption.
Given the significant health benefits, vitamin K2 is arguably the most important dietary supplement, primarily because it can’t be found in sufficient quantities in the Western diet.
Researchers have realized in the last 40 years that vitamin K2 is responsible for activating, or carboxylation, vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDPs), such as osteocalcin and matrix Gla-protein.
When fully carboxylated, osteocalcin attracts calcium into the bones and teeth. Matrix Gla-protein (MGP) helps to prevent vascular calcification by pulling calcium out of soft tissues, including arteries and veins.
Without a good source of K2, osteocalcin and MGP can remain partially uncarboxylated or completely uncarboxylated, allowing calcium to deposit in the blood vessels rather than the bone, where we need it the most.
