Pure Encapsulations PureHeart® K2D

Promotes Calcium Homeostasis & Cardiovascular Function

150 mcg MK-7 and 1,000 iu Vitamin D - 60 Capsules

Pure Encapsulations PureHeart® K2D 150 mcg MK-7 and 1,000 iu vitamin D per serving to promote calcium homeostasis and cardiovascular function.

Vitamin K2 menaquinone-7 (MK-7) promotes healthy vascular calcium balance and cardiovascular function. In a systematic review involving 5 studies, higher intakes of vitamin K2 were associated with cardiovascular health. Research indicates that it supports the carboxylation of matrix Gla-protein (MGP), a key protein involved in calcium balance.

Unlike vitamin K1, which promotes bone health, MK-7 targets vascular tissue to support healthy arterial blood flow and vascular elasticity. In an observational study involving 564 postmenopausal women, higher intake of vitamin K2 was associated with calcium balance in the vascular tissue.

Optimal serum levels of vitamin D are also important to maintain healthy calcium balance in vascular tissues, in part by supporting the activity of MGP. Studies indicate that the combination of vitamin K and D provides synergistic support. Vitamin K supplementation may be contraindicated for those taking Coumadin/warfarin anticoagulant medication.

What Is It?

Vitamin K includes a group of compounds that contain a central ring structure with varying side chains. These differing side chains account for differences in absorption, bioavailability, transport and tissue distribution. Vitamin K1, phylloquinone, is the most common form and is found in plants and green vegetables. Vitamin K2 (MK-7) is less common and found primarily in fermented soy.

Studies indicate that while vitamin K1 is primarily concentrated in the liver, vitamin K2 (MK-7) is concentrated in extra-hepatic tissues, including vascular tissues, allowing for targeted support. MK-7 also has a longer half-life.

Uses For PureHeart™ K2D

Vascular Health: Vitamin K2 menaquinone-7 (MK-7) promotes healthy vascular calcium homeostasis and cardiovascular function. In a systematic review involving 5 studies, higher intakes of vitamin K2 were associated with cardiovascular health.

Research indicates that it supports the carboxylation of matrix Gla-protein (MGP), a key protein involved in calcium balance. Unlike vitamin K1, which concentrates in bone, MK-7 concentrates in vascular tissue where it supports healthy arterial blood flow and vascular elasticity. In an observational study involving 564 postmenopausal women, higher intake of vitamin K2 was associated with healthy calcium balance in the vascular tissue.

Optimal serum levels of vitamin D are also important to maintain healthy calcium balance in vascular tissues, in part by supporting the activity of MGP. Studies indicate that the combination of vitamin K and D provides synergistic support.

What Is The Source?

  • Vitamin K2 (MK-7) is naturally derived from flower extracts geraniol and farnesol.
  • Vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin.
