Vitamk7®

Osteoporosis and heart disease represent a significant public health problem, with a substantial public health impact.

Recently published data on a special form of vitamin K2, called menaquinone-7 (MK7), demonstrated its unique effect and potential benefits on heart disease and bone metabolism. Vitamin K2 is emerging as a key factor in regulating calcium in the body.

Insufficient Vitamin K2 leads to decreased bone mineral density, a key factor in osteoporosis, and to an excess of calcium in the arterial wall, which increases the risk of heart disease.

Vitamk7® exclusively manufactured by Gnosis, is the active isomer of Vit K2 with the highest bioavailability and longest half-life in the blood. Clinical trials were performed by Gnosis on the effect of Vitamk7® on the gamma carboxylation of ostecalcin in vivo study, and on PGE-2 synthesis in bone forming osteoblasts in vitro study.

Vitamk7® is available in powder and in oil forms, suitable for different dosages and formulations. Obtained through a patented natural fermentation process, Vitamk7® is natural and solvent free, and consists entirely of all-trans vitamin K2.


Vitamk7®oil

The biological activity of K2 Vitamins is strictly linked to their chemical structures, made up of naphthoquinone,
the recognized functional group and different aliphatic side chains, that influence absorption, transport, tissue distribution and bioavailability of menaquinones.

Menaquinone-7, has a 7-unit polyprenoid side chain, which makes it highly lipophilic and perfect substrate to be dissolved in oil, guaranteeing high bioavailability and longer half time in the blood. The higher the solubility in fat, the better the vitamin can be absorbed. Gnosis furnishes different oil formulations of natural vitamin k2, as all-trans menaquinone-7, with a content of 1500 ppm. Non-GMO soybean and sunflower oils are used as carriers.
