Nature Made Vitamin K2 softgels are formulated with 100 mcg of vitamin K2, which may help support bone health.†
There are two natural forms of vitamin K, vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Vitamin K1 is derived from plants and is primarily found in the Western diet from green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and broccoli. In contrast, vitamin K2 is animal-derived and is found in small amounts from foods such as liver, certain cheeses and other fermented foods, including natto food, made from fermented soybeans. Vitamin K2 can also be made by intestinal bacteria. Nature Made Vitamin K2 is naturally derived from the same microorganism present in natto food.
Although vitamin K is traditionally known for its established role in supporting normal blood clotting processes, emerging science has also linked vitamin K2 to supporting bone mineralization processes.† Several key proteins involved in bone formation require vitamin K for their actions.†
Consider complimenting with one of Nature Made’s many calcium, vitamin K and magnesium products, since adequate levels of these nutrients are important to help support bone health.†
