Two Important Forms of Vitamin K2 for Bone Health
Vitamin K2 from AOR™ now provides MK-4 and MK-7, two natural forms of Vitamin K2 that help maintain bone health. Although it interferes with "blood thinning" medications, it does not cause excessive or abnormal blood clotting.
Vitamin K is an essential vitamin needed for cardiovascular, bone and liver health. Vitamin K2 is more effective than vitamin K1, the form found in plants, for these specific health effects. There are two effective and popular forms of Vitamin K2: namely MK-4 and MK-7. While MK-4 is the active form of vitamin K2 used by the body and has been used clinically in Japan for decades with good results, MK-7 has also been shown to provide good results at low doses in a sustained-release manner. AOR’s Vitamin K2 provides a 50/50 blend of MK-4 and MK-7 to ensure the best of both worlds.
The most popular, albeit recently highlighted, use for vitamin K2 is for bone health. Vitamin K, along with vitamin D, is essential for proper calcium absorption and usage in the bones. Vitamin K2 also stimulates the synthesis of proteins that regulate bone growth, and has been shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures and improve bone quality.
Vitamin K is also essential to cardiovascular health. It is an important blood clotting factor: without adequate amounts, the risk of bruising and excessive bleeding increases substantially. By the same token, vitamin K enhances calcium absorption from the bloodstream into the bones, preventing arterial calcification and promoting healthy blood vessel function and heart health. Ultimately, Vitamin K2 is an excellent adjunct to conventional osteoporosis medications and is essential for those taking calcium supplements. Vitamin K2 may also be useful for those with a family history of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, arterial calcification or for people who bruise or bleed easily.

Easy to digest! Good product!
I have been using this product for several years and am very happy with it.
Bone density test came back "very good".
I have been using this product for several years and I am very happy with same.
Years ago, AOR only had MK4 available while some other manufacturers provided MK7. It had always been my wish to see MK4 and MK7 in ONE capsule. Finally, AOR fulfilled my wish. Thank you. I am not sure if there is a similar product in the market. I take AOR Bone Basics regularly for my bone health. But when I drink the good quality NON-HOMOGENIZED and only slightly pasteurized cow's milk, I take vitamin D3 and AOR K2 to make sure that the calcium from the milk is properly absorbed. If one takes blood thinning medication, consult the healthcare professional first before using K2.
Vitamin K2, together with Vitamin D, is important for bone and dental health, and AOR offers a good quality of this, in a supposedly more potent form (Menatetranone). The dosage size is also what is recommended too.
My ND suggested this product for bone health - glad for the discounted price
I was sorry to hear about AOR's price increase, but still really like this product and Healthy Planet's BOGO promo helps! My naturopath suggested this product to support my bone health. I'm pleased with it.
My naturopath recommended this for bone health - good product
My MD recommended this product and I trust his judgment.
I take vitamin K2 for my bone health, but it also is good for the blood vessels & heart. A bonus.
I really like this product and the fact that it has MK4 and MK7 makes it perfect for me. i think it's really helping me with bone density (also taking vitamin D3). I will continue to get it. i also trust the AOR brand.
Great quality product for this price, AOR is the best!
Hoping this will help with my osteopenia.
