The designation Vitamin K stands for a multitude of special, fat-soluble compounds which cannot be formed by the human body and therefore have to be included in our dietary intake. Amongst other things, Vitamin K ensures that calcium is brought into the bones and does not form deposits in the arteries and blood vessels. Vitamin K is also involved in normal blood coagulation processes. Of all the known compounds with Vitamin K efficacy, Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7, MK-7) is considered the most significant, with the highest levels of biological activity and availability.
