Most guidelines recommend calcium intake as the prevention or treatment of osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 is usually added in most of the conventional calcium formula to enhance calcium absorption. It is also needed in the production of several important proteins that play vital roles in the body. However, many recent studies showed that high calcium consumption with or without vitamin D3 is linked to an increase in heart disease risks. There is another co-factor, vitamin K2, that is equally important to ensure better utilization of calcium in the body.
Vitamin K2 works by controlling calcium utilisation in the body through the activation of the key proteins that are produced by Vitamin D3. Activation of these key proteins will not only help in integrating calcium to the bones to build stronger bones but it also keeps the heart healthy by inhibiting calcium build-up in the blood vessels. Healthy level of vitamin K2 in the body is associated with more youthful flexibility in the aging blood vessel. Vitamin K2 also plays an important role in the bone-building process while keeping the heart healthy, which are much needed by menopausal women.
MenaquinGold®ES is the solution to the stability problem of vitamin K2. It is the trademark formulation of Vitamin K2 that is highly stable because every granule of vitamin K2 comes with a patented coating that protects it from rapid degradation in a calcium formulation. This provides longer stability and better efficacy of the product. MenaquinGold®ES is produced via a patented environmental-friendly fermentation process using a non-genetically modified organism. It is extracted using a unique method which yield the highest concentration of vitamin K2 with minimum by-product. The vitamin K2 in MenaquinGold®ES is the Vitamin K2-7 or MK-7 subtype. Vitamin K2-7 is well-absorbed and provides the highest activity of Vitamin K2, thus providing the protection needed by the bones and heart.
