Vitamin K was discovered in 1923 by a German scientist who named the vitamin as koagulationsvitamin due to its blood clotting abilities. This is where the vitamin acquired its current name from since the German word starts with the letter K. The fat-soluble vitamin is made in the human body and stored in the liver. Vitamin K2 MK-7 uses gut bacteria to be created in the body, including the bacteria E.coli
Natural dietary sources of Vitamin K2 MK-7 include eggs, yoghurt, natto (a Japanese fermented soybean product) and green leafy vegetables. Natto is the richest source of Vitamin K2 MK-7 as the product consists of 90% Vitamin K2 MK-7.
The main health benefit of Vitamin K2 MK-7 is to contribute to normal blood clotting. The vitamin also encouraged the maintenance of healthy bones by aiding Calcium metabolism and absorption.

Please note- we advise you to contact your health professional if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or taking any medication before use.

We recommend that both the 500 and 1,000 tablet options are more suitable for use by more than one person. This is to ensure that you are receiving full use of the product before its expiry date. For one person's use, we recommend the 120 or 240 tablet options.
