Description

Vitamin K is needed for proper bone formation and blood clotting.  In both cases, vitamin K does this by helping the body transport calcium.  Vitamin K is used by doctors when treating an overdose of warfarin.  Also, doctors prescribe vitamin K to prevent excessive bleeding in people taking warfarin, but require surgery.‡

Vitamin K2 menaquinine-7 (MK-7) promotes healthy vascular calcium balance and supports cardiovascular function.  Vitamin K1 supports bone health, whereas vitamin K2 supports healthy arterial blood flow and vascular elasticity.‡

 

Do not use this product if you are taking warfarin/coumadin without consulting a physician.

 

Warning:  If you are pregnant or lactating woman, have any health conditions, or are taking any medication, make sure to consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
