Vitamin K2 (K2VITAL®)
Vitamin K supplementation can help to support bone health for expecting mothers during a time in which their bodies go through substantial skeletal change in preparation for giving birth.
It is also essential to the health of very young children, so much so that all newborn babies in the UK are given vitamin K at birth to help prevent a rare bleeding disorder called Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding (VKDB).
Since vitamin K is poorly transported from mother to foetus and also the level of vitamin K in breast milk is typically very low, both new and expecting mothers can support their child’s development by supplementing with the vitamin during pregnancy and early infancy.
K2VITAL® is the purest and most biologically active vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7). This MK-7 is the natural form of vitamin K2 that can be properly absorbed and utilised by the body.
