Vitamin K is a group of fat-soluble vitamins recognised as being some of the most important to human health. The
most effective and nutritionally important is vitamin K2, which deals with free calcium excess
in particular. It binds to free-floating calcium - clearing it from the arteries where it accumulates and calcifies, and pushing
it into the bones.
This improves bone density and body composition, as well as benefiting heart health. Thus, vitamin K2
is known for combatting conditions like osteoporosis, osteopenia, heart disease, gall stones and kidney stones.
For a long time, vitamin K2 had not been discovered. Initially, Dr Weston A Price (Dental and Nutrition Pioneer) had
discovered this essential vitamin as a fundamental component in the diet of all healthy tribes across the globe. He called it 'Activator
An unidentified substance that seemed to protect indigenous people from tooth decay and chronic illness. That was until 2007, it was identified as vitamin K2. Nutrition Diagnostics began the race to develop a supplement that mimicked the original 'Activator X' formula. Dr Price thought so highly of this vitamin and believed that it is what gave the traditional people superior health, fertility, longevity and perfect dental health.
There are two subcategories of Vitamin K2 - Menatetrenone (MK-4) and Menaquinone-7 (MK-7).
Vitamin K2 MK-7 has greater bioavailability and a longer 'half life' than MK-4 - meaning it is longer-lasting
and more effective. For these reasons, we have chosen to formulate our own vitamin K2 supplement - Synergy
- using MK-7 in the form of MenaQ7® - the only clinically validated, patented vitamin K2
on the market. As with all of our naturally formulated supplements and vitamins, Synergy K2 has been proudly made in
in accordance with the quality and safety standards for which Australia is renowned.
Like all of our Nutrition Diagnostics products, our Vitamin K2 supplement - Synergy K2 - has been proudly made in Australia. Made from all natural ingredients - featuring only vitamin k2, vitamin d3 and vitamin A - it is one of the best vitamin K2 supplements in Australia!
Our very own vitamin K2 supplement, Synergy K2, was featured by Channel Nine News Australia, in a segment
dedicated to vitamin K2 and its benefits in dealing with osteoporosis and improving heart health.
Synergy K2 is the best vitamin K2 supplement on the market. This is primarily due to its all natural ingredients and the purity of vitamin K2. Many generic vitamin K2 supplements are defined by impurities, nasty solvents and unknowns - which reduces their effectiveness. Vitamin K2 MK-7 in the form of MenaQ7® has more than 98% MK-7, making it uniquely concentrated and pure. The addition of vitamin D3 and vitamin A also aids the effectiveness of Synergy K2, making it the best vitamin K2 supplement.
Vitamin K2 can be found naturally in a range of sources like animal livers, meats, cheeses, milk, eggs (mainly yolk), butter and sauerkraut, to name a few. Its benefits are perhaps best viewed through Dr Weston A Price's lens who first discovered vitamin K2 (or activator X as he knew it). As per the Weston A Price Foundation, "In 1945, Dr Weston Price described 'a new vitamin-like activator' that played an influential role in the utilisation of minerals, protection from tooth decay, growth and development, reproduction, protection against heart disease and the function of the brain."
Dr Weston Price observed that the absence of activator x (vitamin k2) in the modern diet was responsible for the widespread proliferation of tooth decay, poor facial development and degenerative disease. These days, we know that some of the primary benefits of vitamin K2 are in bone and cardiovascular health, as it pushes calcium into the bones - ensuring it does not end up in the arteries.
To enjoy all the benefits of vitamin K2, it is advised you follow a properly formulated diet. This will
assist in optimum absorption and utilisation.
