So, what is menaquinone?

Menaquinone, also known as Vitamin K2, is a fat-soluble nutrient found in some animal and fermented foods. It plays a vital role in blood clotting and bone health by activating specific proteins and regulating calcium in the body. Unlike other forms of Vitamin K, Menaquinone has a long half-life, which means it stays in the body longer and can have a greater impact on health. Studies suggest that Menaquinone supplementation may reduce the risk of heart disease and improve bone density. It is often used in dietary supplements and fortified foods to help support overall health and wellness.
