Vitamin K2 or menaquinone is a natural bacterium found in the intestines, vitamin K2 activates calcium-binding actions in the body which helps to build and maintain bones. Vitamin K2 is also a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for blood clotting. CanPrev formulates its vitamin K2 with a unique form of MK-7 or Menaquinone-7. MK-7 is an effective activator of osteocalcin, a protein that is essential for calcium deposition in the bone. The MK-7 used in CanPrev’s D3 + K2 is soy-free, plant-sourced, and 100% trans-form, which yields a pure, bio-active form of vitamin 2 MK-7.
Vitamin K2 MK-7 works synergistically with vitamin D3 to help strengthen bones and teeth. Vitamin D3, otherwise known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it is produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus which helps to keep your bones and teeth strong. Vitamin D also helps to protect against disease. Your body naturally produces vitamin D’s when exposed to sunlight, sadly we can’t always be on tropical vacations and not every day is filled with warm sunshine. CanPrev Vitamin D3 is sunshine in a bottle!
