Vitamin k2 mk7 powder Introduction
Vitamin K2, the main storage form in animals, has several subtypes, which differ in isoprenoid chain length. These vitamin K2 homologues are called menaquinones, and are characterized by the number of isoprenoid residues in their side chains. Menaquinones are abbreviated MK-n, where M stands for menaquinone, the K stands for vitamin K, and the n represents the number of isoprenoid side chain residues. For example, menaquinone-4 (abbreviated MK-4) has four isoprene residues in its side chain. Menaquinone-4 (also known as menatetrenone from its four isoprene residues) is the most common type of vitamin K2 in animal products since MK-4 is normally synthesized from vitamin K1 in certain animal tissues (arterial walls, pancreas, and testes) by replacement of the phytyl tail with an unsaturated geranylgeranyl tail containing four isoprene units, thus yielding menaquinone-4. This homolog of vitamin K2 may have enzyme functions distinct from those of vitamin K1.
Menaquinone-7 is different from MK-4 in that it is not produced by human tissue. MK-7 may be converted from phylloquinone (K1) in the colon by Escherichia coli bacteria. However, bacterially derived menaquinones (MK-7) appear to contribute minimally to overall vitamin K status.MK-4 and MK-7 are both found in the United States in dietary supplements for bone health.
All K vitamins are similar in structure: they share a "quinone" ring, but differ in the length and degree of saturation of the carbon tail and the number of "side chains" full citation needed] The number of side chains is indicated in the name of the particular menaquinone (e.g., MK-4 means that four molecular units – called isoprene units – are attached to the carbon tail) and this influences the transport to different target tissues.
Vitamin k2 mk7 powder Function
1. Vitamin K2 Powder May Help Prevent Heart Disease.
A higher intake of vitamin K2 is strongly associated with a reduced risk of heart disease.
2. It May Help Improve Bone Health and Lower The Risk of Osteoporosis.
Vitamin K2 plays an essential role in bone metabolism and studies suggest that it can help prevent osteoporosis and fractures.
3. It May Improve Dental Health.
It is believed that Vitamin K2 may play a critical role in dental health, but there are currently no human studies to support this.
4. Vitamin K2 Powder May Help Fight Cancer.
Vitamin K2 has been found to improve survival in patients with liver cancer. Men who consume the most K2 have a lower risk of advanced prostate cancer.
