How Vitamin K2 Supports Bone Health
Vitamin K2 plays an important role in supporting bone health. There are 2 different types of Vitamin K – K1 and K2. While K1 is found in common leafy green vegetables, K2 may be something an average adult might not be adding adequate amounts of in his/her diet. Some food sources of Vitamin K2 include fermented soybeans or natto (in Japanese), organ meat, soft cheese and egg yolks. Vitamin K1’s main benefit is aiding blood coagulation. However, Vitamin K2 plays a more diverse role:
- According to studies, it may significantly improve cardiovascular health by preventing calcium deposition
- Vitamin K2 supports bone health by promoting calcification of bones
- Some studies even associate healthy levels of Vitamin K2 with an improvement in anxiety and depression
- Its antioxidant properties help prevent cancer since some studies suggest that helps suppress tumour growth
