Kappa Bioscience, Manufacturer and supplier of premium Vitamin K2 MK-7 through organic synthesis

Kappa Bioscience

Kappa Bioscience​ is the pioneer in development and production of the only synthetic and biologically active all-trans​ menaquinone-7 (vitamin K2 MK-7), marketed under the K2VITAL®​ brand name. Kappa’s innovation of MK-7 synthesis marks the commercial milestone where this fat-soluble vitamin can begin to attain widespread consumer adoption. Effective synthesis production drives scalability, price reduction and a secure supply chain - with unmatched ingredient purity and documentation. Combined with other Kappa innovations such as the patented DELTA®​ microencapsulation process, which provides K2 stability in mineral formulations, K2VITAL®​ offers brands and manufacturers a path to broader market segments. Kappa Ingredients GmbH, a wholly owned division of Kappa Bioscience, manages global sales of the K2VITAL®​ and other product lines directly and through a network of global distributors.

K2VITAL®​is pure vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7). Vitamin K2 is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that directs calcium to the right places in the body. K2VITAL®​ K2 MK-7, the superior form of K2, activates the osteocalcin proteins that incorporate calcium to bones, and the matrix-Gla proteins (MGP) that bind calcium to prevent deposits in arteries and smooth muscle walls. Even a balanced diet does not provide us with enough vitamin K2. K2VITAL®​ is offered in a range of formulations, including protected, microencapsulated K2VITAL®​ DELTA for superior K2 stability in calcium and magnesium formulations. K2VITAL®​ offers the assurance that the synthesis process creates a nature-identical molecule, 100% bioequivalent to K2 MK-7 created via a fermentation process. 

Calcified Atlantic Seaweed®​ (CAS) is a premium form of calcium manufactured and distributed by Kappa Bioscience.  CAS®​ is a highly absorbable, plant-derived and natural form of Calcium extracted from wild red algae. This form provides superior calcium bio-absorption and also contains 28 bone-building trace elements and minerals including magnesium, iron and iodine. A sustainably harvested, vegan-whole food ingredient, CAS®​ offers a premium calcium at pricing for mass market applications.
