Synergy K2

Can I get all the vitamin K2 I need from my diet?

Vitamin K2 can be found naturally in the diet. Foods that are rich in vitamin K2 include; natto, animal livers, meats, cheeses, butter and sauerkraut. The main difference between the vitamin k2 found in food and that found in our Synergy K2 supplement is that vitamin K2 typically exists as MK-4 in food, whereas our supplement is MK-7. This is not to disparage foods that are rich in vitamin K2 as they are typically nutrient-dense and nutritionally important for various other reasons. However, our Synergy K2 supplement is more highly concentrated.

What is the daily recommended dose of Synergy K2?

We suggest adults and children over 10 take 1 capsule per day (with a meal) or as advised by your healthcare professional.

Who should be taking Vitamin K2?

Everyone can take our vitamin K2 supplement - especially those with immune challenges, poor bone density, heart/cardiovascular issues and free calcium excess (gall and kidney stones for example). Vitamin K2 is essential for people of all ages.

Why is it important to supplement vitamin D3 with Vitamin K2?

Under the disease model of health, a number of people are diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency. They are then prescribed vitamin D supplements to boost these levels. However, this approach fails to recognise that it is not a lack of vitamin D that causes poor health, but rather that poor health causes low vitamin D. The most common cause we see for vitamin D deficiency is an excess of free calcium. This is because the body requires vitamin D to absorb calcium properly. In the instance fo free calcium excess, the body deliberately lowers its vitamin D levels in an attempt to protect itself from calcium being deposited into the arteries, joints and organs. When you supplement with vitamin D only, calcium can be deposited into the arteries, joints and organs. However, when supplementing with vitamin D with K2, calcium absorption can be optimised and pushed into the bones. This synergy between vitamin K2 and D3 is key to the efficacy of our Synergy K2 supplement.

Why is vitamin K2 MK-7 better than MK-4?

Vitamin K2 MK-7 is superior to MK-4 as it has greater bioavailability and longer half life. This means it is longer-lasting and also more potent - ultimately making it more effective.
