A little-known Japanese soybean dish may just be one of the most nutritious foods on earth. Among its many properties, it is one of the best sources for Vitamin K-2, which supports bone and circulatory health. Natto is a fermented soybean food that has been eaten for centuries in Japan. Its intense smell and gooey consistency don’t appeal to many westerners, but you don’t have to eat a bowl of natto to obtain its nutritional riches. The bacterium that ferments natto, Bacillus subtilis, is one of the most potent sources of a powerful form of vitamin K, called K-2, ever discovered.
VITAMIN K-2 is a supercharged form of vitamin K. Why supercharged? It has all of the benefits of vitamin K, but it stays longer in circulation and is active in a wider number of organs and tissues. Source Naturals VITAMIN K-2 is fundamental for strong bones and a clear circulatory system.
Vitamin K-1, also known as phylloquinone, is found in plants. Vitamin K-2, called manaquinone (MK) is found in animals or bacteria. VITAMIN K-2 from Source Naturals is made from natto bacterium, which contains a highly potent vitamin K-2. Compared with vitamin K-1, K-2 has comparable benefits, but has higher circulation concentrations in more varied areas of the body. Simply stated, it works harder and it stays at work longer, in more parts of the body than K-1.
Vitamin K is essential for healthy bone formation and repair; it is involved in the synthesis of osteocalcin, the protein in bone tissue upon which calcium crystallizes. As Vitamin K helps build bones, it also inhibits calcification of the blood vessels. This “calcium transport” function thereby removes calcium deposits from the vessels where they aren’t needed, and working in conjunction with vitamin D, increases calcium deposits in the bones, where calcium is needed most. Vitamin K also plays an important role in the intestines, helping to convert glucose into glycogen for storage in the liver.
