          Vitamin-K2 is one of those vitamins no one really knows about but is extremely important for absorption of Vitamin-D. Without it, Vitamin-D can turn to calcium deposits in your arteries. The Vitamin Shop's K-2 is great quality at a great price. Everywhere else I've found this vitamin, it's much more expensive. Delivery took only 2 days!

              I too was looking for the MK-7 versus the shorter duration MK-4. It would have been fine for me if it was just the K2 and not the D3 as well since I take that separately. This is the second time I have ordered this product and I am very pleased with it.

                  I was looking for a good K2 supplement in the form of MK-7, (as opposed to MK-4. MK-7 is I believe the naturally occurring form and stays in the body longer than 4) and am very happy with this product.

                  Research that I did shows that Vitamin K2 directs calcium where it should go. Asians eat a lot of Vitamin K2. The foods that Americans eat don't have this vitamin.

                  I need to take "dry" versions of fat soluble vitamins as I had a duodenal switch and don't absorb fats well. I need to stay on top of my nutritional needs on a daily basis to avoid malnutrition.

                  This product contains soy, which is good because Vitamin K2 should be made from natto. However, is this soy non-GMO? I am concerned to take vitamins that are made from one of the top 10 genetically modified foods. Please tell me that the soy from this vitamin is organic.
                  Vanessa H on Jan 8, 2013
                  Best Answer: Hi Vanessa H,
                  I already discarded the bottle of Vit K2, so I cannot be sure that the soy component is organic. However, I have bought many Vitaming Shoppe products over several years and so far none of them contained GMO components.

                  Are there any side effects? and will it remineralize my teeth or help them in any way?

                  Best Answer: If Taking a Vitamin D Supplement, Remember K2 and Magnesium, Too -

                  If you opt for a supplement, be sure to take vitamin D3—not synthetic D2—and take vitamin K2 and magnesium in conjunction with it. Vitamin D is fat-soluble, so taking some form of healthy fat with it will also help optimize absorption. The biological role of vitamin K2 is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, and without sufficient amounts, calcium may build up in areas such as your arteries and soft tissues. This can cause calcification that can lead to hardening of your arteries—a side effect previously thought to be caused by vitamin D toxicity. We now know that inappropriate calcification is actually due more to lack of K2 than simply too much vitamin D.

                  Magnesium is also important, both for the proper function of calcium, and for the activity of vitamin D as it converts vitamin D into its active form. Magnesium also activates enzyme activity that helps your body use the vitamin D. In fact, all enzymes that metabolize vitamin D require magnesium to work. As with vitamin D and K2, magnesium deficiency is also common, and if you’re lacking in magnesium and take supplemental calcium, you may exacerbate the situation.

                  Vitamin A, zinc, and boron are other important cofactors that interact with vitamin D. When taking supplements, it can be easy to create lopsided ratios, so getting these nutrients from an organic whole food diet and sensible sun exposure is generally your best bet. Dietary sources of magnesium include sea vegetables, such as kelp, dulse, and nori. Vegetables can also be a good source. As for supplements, magnesium citrate and magnesium threonate are among the best.

                  Can you take this with other vitamins?
                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jul 30, 2014
                  Best Answer: To my knowledge, yes you can take K2 with other vitamins. It's often included in multivitamin formulas, but at a lower dose. This form, VITAMIN K2(AS MENAQUINONE 7)is probably the most bioactive. K2 controls blood clotting, but that affect doesn't increase with dose. Also important, K2 encourages the deposition of calcium into the bones, and not the arteries, where it may contribute to atherosclerosis. However, don't take k2 if you're taking prescription blood thinners like koumadin or warfarin without consulting your physician..

                  Why is it that this bottle indicates k2 but when you look at supplement facts, it indicate D3 as well? Folks might be taking too much Vitamin D without realizing it.

                  This product has been recommended to me by several people but I see that there is a problem within the supplement industry as to the accuracy of the amount of supplement contained within the product being what is listed on the bottle. Does this product have a seal from USP or NSF International that verifies the amount of Vitamin D is what is claimed to be on the packaging?

                  Is this from NATTO?
                  Linda S on Apr 27, 2013
                  Best Answer: Hi Linda,

                  There are 9 versions of vitamin K2 but really just two of them are commonly on the market. One is called MENAQUINONE-7 and is made by a fermentation process. The other is called MENATETRENONE (also known as MK4) and is made from animals. Research seems to suggest that MK4 is better at preserving bone but both forms will help. If you decide to try MK4, don't be put off by the much higher dosages, they are correct for that type of K2.
                  This version (MK7) is good for vegetarians but maybe not so great if you are really sensitive to yeast or mold. My husband does well on it but I use MK7 for myself because of I am so sensitive to yeast.
                  To answer your question about this product, most MK7 products are not made from Natto so I am fairly sure this one is not either.
