There are three forms of vitamin K that the human body can utilize to promote arterial health and bone support.1-8 Life Extension®’s Super K with Advanced K2 Complex provides the dynamic trio of vitamin K forms in one softgel, including vitamin K1, vitamin K2 (MK-4), and vitamin K2 (MK-7).
Vitamin K1 is the form of vitamin K that is found in green vegetables. K1 is tightly bound to plant fiber, so only a fraction is absorbed into the bloodstream. Supplementation ensures ample K1 blood levels. Vitamin K2 is usually found in meats, dairy, and egg yolks. Since you may be avoiding these foods for health reasons, ingesting a K2 supplement is essential. MK-4 is the most rapidly absorbed form of K2, and MK-7 boasts a very long half-life in the body, making both forms the perfect complement to any vitamin K regimen.9
