Vitamin K2 100 mcg
- Helps in the normal development and maintenance of bones and teeth
- Helps guide calcium into bones
- Inhibits the calcification of arteries and other soft tissues
- Provides double-action support for bone and vascular health
- Ideal to use alongside calcium and vitamin D supplementation
Vitamin K2 from Natural Factors contains MK-7, the most bioavailable form of vitamin K derived naturally from natto beans. Each dose provides 24-hour protection by guiding calcium toward the bones and teeth where it is needed most, and away from the arteries where it causes damage.
Natural Factors Vitamin K2 features vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), an advanced, fat-soluble form of vitamin K that serves multiple functions in the body. The K family consists of a trio of vitamins: K1 (phylloquinone), naturally occurring in leafy green vegetables and plant oils; K2 (mena-quinone) present in butter, cows liver, eggs, certain cheeses and natto, a fermented soybean food; and K3, a synthetic form of the vitamin. K3 has been shown to have toxic effects on the liver and K1 doesn’t have adequate benefits for calcium metabolism to dramatically improve osteoporosis or atherosclerosis. Only K2 in the form of MK-7 has been shown to offer 24-hour protection from a single daily dose. Other commercially available subtypes of K2, such as MK-4, only last four to six hours in the body and are required in much larger dosages to be effective.
Vitamin K1 is easy to obtain from green leafy vegetables. The bacteria in our intestines will convert some of that to K2, but not enough to prevent or treat atherosclerosis and osteoporosis. K2 is found in the diet in natto, a fermented soybean food popular in Japan, as well as in butter, meat, egg yolks, and organ meats from animals that are fed grass instead of grain. As grass-fed animal products are rare nowadays and a taste for natto is difficult to acquire for most Westerners, a vitamin K2 supplement is the best way to ensure you are getting an optimal daily dose of this important nutrient.
Researchers worldwide are only beginning to uncover the many essential roles that vitamin K2 plays in our health. Our growing understanding of this nutrient is rapidly redefining cardiovascular disease as an illness of nutritional deficiency. In addition, a vitamin K2 deficiency appears to be an underlying factor in the development of diabetes and liver cancer. Vitamin K2 also plays an essential role in bone metabolism and promoting healthy teeth. For most people, diet alone will not help them meet their daily requirement of vitamin K2. Daily use of Natural Factors Vitamin K2 makes it easy to get optimum levels of this important nutrient.

Magnesium is required for the formation of bones and teeth, and for nerve and muscle function. It is involved in numerous enzyme reactions that keep the body working properly. It regulates growth and development, and supports immune function and temperature regulation. Shaky hands, tension headaches, nervousness, and muscle spasms all respond favourably to magnesium.
Magnesium is vital to hundreds of enzyme reactions and has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral including calcium. Magnesium, along with calcium, is a shock-absorber, helping to prevent the body from experiencing excessive stress. It is better absorbed in citrate form. Studies show that mineral citrates have superior absorption especially when taken on an empty stomach.
Magnesium is an important electrolyte which helps the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium. Magnesium is required for the B vitamins to work properly and is absolutely necessary for the utilization of thiamine.
Magnesium is necessary for growth and development, wound healing, immune system function, temperature regulation and many activities of the brain and nervous system. Shaky hands, nervousness, muscle spasms, irregular or rapid heartbeat, all respond favourably to magnesium.Show Less

The methylcobalamin form of B12 is superior to the more common form, cyanocobalamin, as it is active immediately in the body after absorption, rather than having to be converted in the body to the active form.
Vitamin B12 has a range of uses in the body. It is needed to prevent anemia; it aids folic acid in regulating the formation of red blood cells, and helps in the utilization of iron. This vitamin is also important in energy production and the production of genetic materials DNA and RNA. In the nervous system, its primary role is in the production of neurotransmitters that help with memory and learning, and for brain health to help slow cognitive decline that comes with aging.
Methylcobalamin is essential in converting homocysteine into methionine, playing an important role in protein synthesis necessary for cardiovascular function. As such, it is important for the maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system and the maintenance of good health.

10 Billion Active Cells · Double Strength
- May prevent antibiotic-induced diarrhea
- Promotes regular bowel movements
- Helps reduce cholesterol levels
- Keeps a proper pH balance in the small intestine
Natural Factors Acidophilus & Bifidus contains three strains of probiotics to assist with the maintenance of normal intestinal health. Each capsule contains goat milk powder to provide an excellent environment for lactic bacteria to grow. Supplementing with Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium will crowd out unwanted bacteria by repopulating the gastrointestinal tract.
Supplemental bacteria are called probiotics, meaning “for life” or “in support of life”, because they are the natural guardians of robust intestinal health and vitality. Friendly or probiotic bacteria toil 24 hours a day, holding at bay and dominating the many pathogenic bacteria, viruses, yeast, and other microorganisms that unavoidably inhabit the intestinal tract. Given opportunity, the pathogens succeed in colonizing by adhering to the intestinal tract, inflicting disruptions to our intestinal health and throughout the whole body. Beneficial bacteria also have a profound effect on the immune system, boosting immunity to combat allergies, flu, and the common cold.
The human intestinal tract contains trillions of bacteria in a natural but delicate state of balance between the beneficial bacteria and their good effects, and the pathogenic microorganisms and their potentially adverse effects. Under conditions of high stress or prolonged stress, antibiotic therapy, vacation or business travel, and encounters with food or water-borne pathogens, this natural protective balance can be disrupted, resulting in a decline in the number of beneficial or probiotic bacteria.
Natural Factors Acidophilus & Bifidus contains three strains of probiotics to assist with the maintenance of normal intestinal health: Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Bifidobacterium bifidum.
