The new analysis of looked at 896 blood samples collected from 110 healthy participants and revealed that both children and adults had high levels of under-carboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC, in the bone) and matrix Gla protein (ucMGP, in the blood vessels), both of which are biomarkers of vitamin K status.
Further, the study showed that vitamin K2 (as MK-7) supplementation improves the status of these biomarkers. This is particularly important for bone development in children and for preventing osteoporosis and arterial calcification in adults.
