Vitamin K2 exerts a more powerful influence on bone than does vitamin K1. Vitamin K2 is a series of molecules known as menaquinones. The most common and well studied of the menaquinones is MK-4. Thorne's vitamin K2 is MK-4. Vitamin K is also essential for normal cell formation and maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system.
It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important systems in the body, including healthy bones, immunity, and cardiovascular function.
Combining vitamins D and K may provide even better protection of these systems. One study in postmenopausal women found a combination of minerals with vitamins D and K maintained healthy artery elasticity, compared to two other groups of women who received either minerals with vitamin D but not K, or placebo.
