The No. 1 Casualty of Vitamin K2 Deficiency

Format: PDF file | Document type: Technical / White Paper


Arterial calcification is a dangerous side effect of unattended calcium in the bloodstream. When arteries calcify and lose their flexibility, blood and nutrients can no longer flow freely through the body. But calcification is not an unfortunate result of aging. Rather, it is an active process, regulated by Matrix GLA Protein (MGP). However, in order for MGP to do its job, it must be activated by Vitamin K2.

Unfortunately, we see that 97% of Western populations are deficient in this essential nutrient that not only protects our cardiovascular health, but also strengthens our bones. More specifically, MenaQ7®​ Vitamin K2 is clinically proven to do both, and carries patents for cardiovascular support.
