Vitamin K is a very important component of human health, and it is essential for ensuring the normal functioning of the body. Vitamin K deficiency can contribute to significant bleeding, poor bone development, osteoporosis, and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that occurs in two main forms namely, phylloquinone (vitamin K1) and various menaquinones (vitamin K2). The main sources of phylloquinone include plant-based foods like leafy vegetables whereas sources of menaquinones include animal-based foods like meat, fish, dairy products, and fermented foods [1] [2].

Vitamin K2-7 is a natural form of Vitamin K2 found in foods such as natto (traditional Japanese food from fermented soybeans). Vitamin K2-7 is also known as menaquinone-7 (MK-7) and it is known for its beneficial effects on osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, diabetes, and peripheral neuropathy [1].

It plays an important role in various biological functions along with vitamin K-dependent proteins (VKDPs). K2-7 is a cofactor of enzymes that drives the conversion of inactive proteins through the carboxylation process into their active forms such as osteocalcin (OC), and matrix GLA protein (MGP). These calcium-binding proteins in their inactive or uncarboxylated form are unable to effectively regulate the integration of calcium from the intestines, potentially leading to diminished bone mass, higher fracture risk, and the calcification of arteries and other soft tissues.

An adequate intake of vitamin K2 ensures the effective carboxylation of OC and MGP proteins, which in turn helps the body to bind calcium to bones — while keeping levels in the bloodstream at the correct quantities to avoid vascular calcification. In the absence of vitamin K2, the optimal functioning of these proteins is hindered which leads to pathological complications that include chronic degenerative conditions cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and metabolic conditions like diabetes [1].

Vitamin K deficiency in adults is rare but may occur in people taking medications that block vitamin K metabolism such as antibiotics, or in those with conditions that cause malabsorption of food and nutrients. Antibiotic medicines may destroy vitamin-K-producing bacteria in the gut, thereby potentially decreasing vitamin K levels, especially if taking the medicine for more than a few weeks. People who have a poor appetite while using long-term antibiotics may be at greater risk for a deficiency, and may benefit from a vitamin K supplement [3].

Unived’s K2-7-Veg™ is formulated with Menaquinone-7 from fermented chickpeas. It also contains Medium-Chain Triglycerides (70%).

Mode of Action:

  • Vascular or arterial calcification is characterized by mineral depositions on the walls in the vascular system. Vitamin K2-7 facilitates carboxylation of glutamate (Glu) residue present on matrix Gla protein (MGP) leading to the formation of carboxylated MGP (cMGP) and aids in phosphorylation of MGP leading to its activation; activated MGP inhibits bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) resulting in prevention of vascular or arterial calcification [1].
  • K2-7 also is a cofactor in the conversion of undercarboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC) to carboxylated osteocalcin (cOC); cOC has an affinity for calcium ions and facilitates the transport of calcium to the bone for bone formation [1].

What is the suggested use of Unived K2-7-Veg™?

Adults take 1 capsule per day, post-meal.

What is RDA?

RDA - the Recommended Dietary Allowances are the levels of intake of essential nutrients that, on the basis of scientific knowledge, are judged by the Food and Nutrition Board to be adequate to meet the known nutrient needs of practically all healthy persons.

Is Unived Vitamin K2-7-Veg™ safe?

Yes it is. The K2-7 (MenaquinGold®) in the formulation is safe to have both long and short term and it’s been extensively studied.

Can too much Vitamin K2 cause blood clots?

Abnormal clotting is not related to excessive vitamin K intake, and there is no known toxicity associated with vitamin K1 or vitamin K2. Some oral anticoagulants, such as warfarin inhibit coagulation by antagonizing the action of vitamin K.

Does Vitamin K2-7 interact with any other drugs?

If you are currently on antibiotics, blood thinners like warfarin or Coumadin, anticonvulsants, consult your healthcare practitioner before taking the Vitamin K2-7 supplement as these drugs may interact with Vitamin K2-7.

Plant Based Vitamin K2-7, Menaquinone MK-7

This is the second bottle I'm going through. I've only found Unived in India making this, apart from some brand called Himalaya Organic something, and trust Unived more for sure.

Thanks for your range!

I can't say for sure if I feel different but I read the Vit K2,7 is needed with vit D, so I'm going with it.
