Vitamin K2 is also named Menadione, which is a natural fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin K2 can be used for bone health. It can regulate γ-glutamyl carboxylase that is an important coenzyme for body metabolism and reduce osteocalcin. The glutamate residues in carboxylated into γ-carboxylated glutamate residues activate osteocalcin to form “calcium claws, ” combining with hydroxyapatite to promote bone mineral salt deposition.
In addition, if people supplement vitamin D, they need to increase the intake of vitamin K2, because when the body absorbs vitamin D, it will produce more protein that depends on vitamin K2. This protein can help the body transfer calcium, and the body needs vitamins. K2 activates these proteins, otherwise, the calcium in the body will not be reasonably distributed, resulting in brittle bones and hardening of the arteries.
At present, vitamin K2 has good application stability in a variety of dosage forms, and the mainstream application direction is that vitamin D such as tablets and capsules can effectively promote the absorption of calcium in the intestine. In recent years, studies have found that vitamin K2 also plays a role in calcium supplementation and bone health, but different from the mechanism of vitamin D, vitamin K2 mainly deposits calcium in the bones, turning blood calcium into bone calcium, and preventing hypercalcemia. Caused by vascular calcification and so on.

1. A tablet produced in conjunction with vitamin D
2. It can be used as a functional soft capsule for bone health
3. Can be used as children’s calcium supplement gummies
