Doctor’s Best Introduces Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7™

Superior Form of Vitamin K for Optimal Bioavailability

Available in 180 Vegetarian Capsule Size


SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., –– Doctor's Best has introduced Natural Vitamin K2 — MenaQ7™ into its dietary supplement line. Scott Steinford, president of Doctor's Best, made the announcement. This product comes as 180 vegetable capsules, each delivering 45 mcg of natural vitamin K2 as MenaQ7™. Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7™ is the superior form of vitamin K for optimum bioavailability and delivery to the body. MenaQ7™ is purified from natto, a traditional Japanese fermented soy food that is naturally rich in vitamin K2. Not just a single vitamin, Vitamin K is a family of fat-soluble vitamins with similar structures, but different metabolic properties. Vitamin K2 belongs to the group of vitamin K compounds called “menaquinones” which demonstrate greater bioactivity when compared to vitamin K1 (the ordinary form of supplemental vitamin K). MenaQ7™ is designated as MK-7, for menaquinone 7, which refers to the length of the structurally related molecular side chains associated with the molecule. MK-7 is the primary menaquinone found naturally in fermented foods. Recent scientific studies reveal that MK-7 contributes to optimum vitamin K storage in the body and functions most effectively for promoting healthy bones.* Vitamin K2 is absorbed more completely, remains in the body longer, and delivers more benefits for bones, blood vessels and other soft tissues.
