The activation in the body of important proteins – via a process known as carboxylation – appears to be at the center of most of vitamin K’s therapeutic benefits.* When vitamin K is present as a co-factor, the proteins that are activated in this vitamin K-dependent process include multiple blood-clotting proteins (prothrombin and others), bone mineralization proteins (osteocalcin and calbindin), and the vascular calcification inhibitor protein (matrix Gla-protein).*
Unique features of 3-K Complete include:
- An all-in-one formula that offers a synergistic blend of the clinically studied forms of vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 (as MK-4 and MK-7)
- A convenient 1-2 capsules per day suggested use to best support bone and cardiovascular health*
- Significantly more MK-4 than other multiple-K products on the market
- The inclusion of MenaQ7® — the clinically studied MK-7
In the body, vitamin K “pairs up” with vitamin D, much like magnesium pairs up with calcium. The result is that both vitamin K and magnesium will help keep calcium in the bones and out of the blood vessels and other soft tissues.* If you or your patients are taking supplemental vitamin D, then be sure to add supplemental vitamin K as 3-K Complete.
