While results showed that after 12 months of supplementation all women in the enriched-dairy groups (vs. the control group) had increased bone mineral density (BMD), only women consuming the vitamin K-enriched products had significant increases in BMD in the lower back.
The researchers conclude, “The present study revealed more favorable changes in bone metabolism and bone mass indices for the two vitamin K-supplemented groups, mainly reflected in the suppression of serum levels of bone remodeling indices and in the more positive changes in lumbar spine BMD for these two study groups.”
