More facts about Super K Elite
There’s more than one kind of vitamin K. And foods rich in naturally-occurring vitamin K often have several of those forms, such as the heart-healthy vitamin K2 sub-types called menaquinones. Super K Elite delivers a variety of vitamin K forms closer to what you’d find in food, at the clinically studied dosages designed to give you the optimum health benefits.
Vitamin K promotes healthy calcium balance
Vitamin K helps inhibit calcification in your arteries and promotes healthy calcium absorption into your bones.1,2 This is called a healthy calcium balance. This formula contains 2,000 mcg of vitamin K1, the same dosage found to encourage heart health in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial.3 Additionally, vitamin K2 has been shown to support both bone and heart health.
Vitamin K2 – what are menaquinones?
The sub-forms of the vitamin K2 family are called menaquinones. Primarily derived from high-fat foods,4,5 vitamin K2 – which includes the forms MK-4, MK-6, MK-7 and MK-9 supports bone, heart and arterial health.6
MK-9 promotes cardiovascular health, according to an eight-year epidemiological study in over 16,000 women.7 This supplement provides 11 mcg of MK-6 and 43 mcg of MK-9, because these new rock-stars of the vitamin K2 world are effective in very small amounts. This is a good thing, because you’d need to ingest over ¾ pound of cheddar cheese, to get the equivalent MK-6 and over ¼ pound of cheddar to get as much MK-9.8
MK-4 promotes arterial and bone health.9,10 This supplement delivers 1,500 mcg, the same dosage shown to promote healthy bone density in a clinical study.10 Trans-MK-7 helps maintain bone strength and arterial flexibility.11,12 This supplement delivers 181 mcg, the same dosage studied in double-blind, placebo-controlled trials measuring bone and cardiovascular health.12,13
Convenient Vitamin K
You may be looking for a “cheddar cheese” comparison for MK-4 and MK-7. Well, here it is: you’d need to eat over 17 pounds to get this much MK-7 … and over 32 pounds of cheddar cheese to get this much MK-4.8 That’s a lot of cheese!
