CanPrev’s K2 (K2VITAL®) offers a K2 MK-7 that is produced using an organic synthesis method. Most K2 MK-7 products on the market are derived from a soy fermentation called natto. While both methods produce MK-7 that is identical to that found in nature, organic synthesis offers a few additional benefits.
First, it produces a product made up of 100% “all-trans” isomer MK-7 molecule – the kind that our body can use to activate enzymes. Fermentation processes produces a mixture of cis and trans isomer MK-7, which is not as bioavailable.
Second, CanPrev’s MK-7 is sourced from Norwegian and German plant oils rather than soy. This is a good choice for anyone who may have soy sensitivities. It is soy-free.
Third, unlike in fermentation, MK-7 molecules derived by organic synthesis do not need to be extracted and purified – removing the need for solvents in the manufacturing process.
Our K2 MK-7 is synthesized from plant oils (farnesol and geraniol) that are sourced from Norway and Germany.
Since K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin we’ve added MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil derived from palm and/or coconut oil to help improve absorption.
Yes, all of CanPrev’s K2 products would be suitable for people who have a sensitivity to soy. CanPrev’s Vitamin K2 MK-7 offers a unique form of MK-7 that is non-soy derived, produced through an organic synthesis process. In addition, CanPrev’s Vitamin K2 products are also gluten, diary, and corn free.
Yes, our line of K2 (K2Vital®) formulations are GMO-free.
We encourage you to try and get as much dietary vitamin K2 as you can from your diet first. We recommend including natto into your diet. Natto, an extremely popular fermented soy bean dish from eastern Japan, is one of the best sources of K2 MK-7 you can find in food. Unfortunately, it’s somewhat hard to find outside of Japan, as well as being a bit of an acquired taste.
Closer to Canada, K2 in food is a little harder to find. Fermented cheese is an option – one would have to consume around 60 grams of hard cheese daily to reach an effective amount of vitamin K2. Obtaining enough K2 through diet alone is somewhat difficult – supplementation is a good way to ensure you attain recommended levels.
Blood thinners work by inhibiting the action of vitamin K (particularly K1 needed for clotting). We recommend that you consult with your healthcare practitioner before incorporating vitamin K2 into your daily regime.
