Vitamin K2 Complex with K1
Vitamin K is an essential vitamin that helps maintain calcium balance in the body, especially for bone and circulatory health. The most common form of Vitamin K is Vitamin K1, which is found in green, leafy vegetables. But it can be difficult for individuals to obtain sufficient sources of Vitamin K from food alone, which may also be poorly absorbed in the body. Vitamin K2 is up to 8x more bioavailable than Vitamin K1 and remains active in the body for a longer period of time. It shuttles calcium into the bones and helps with proper absorption of Vitamin D3. Vitamin K2 with K1 Complex is a safe, effective and potent comprehensive formula that helps supply calcium directly to the bone and helps maintain vital cardiovascular functions.†
Vitamin K2 shuttles calcium into the bones (through proper Matrix GLA activity, a protein found in soft tissues and blood vessel walls) and helps with the proper absorption of Vitamin D3 supplementation. It assists in the proper distribution of minerals and electrolytes essential for homeostasis and bone building. All of the bones in your body create Osteocalcin, a protein crucial for building strong, healthy bones. Vitamin K2 acts as an essential binding agent for Osteocalcin, ensuring that the proper levels of minerals and nutrients fuse to the bones.†

The Science Behind Vitamin K2 with K1
Research published in the Journal of Osteoporosis explains how vitamin k is essential for bone health in humans. It is an essential vitamin for bone health, taking part in the carboxylation of many bone-related proteins, regulating genetic transcription of osteoblastic markers, and regulating bone reabsorption. Vitamin K deficiency is not uncommon, as deposits are scarce and dependent upon dietary supplementation and absorption. 
Research from Current Nutrition Reports states that supplementation with Vitamin K helps to support heart health and function as well as circulation and blood coagulation. A strong body of evidence from experimental animal and human models indicates that vitamin K is involved in vascular calcification, helping to deliver calcium from soft tissue to the bones and teeth. 
Research from the Open Heart Biomedical Journal states that supplementation with vitamin K helps with blood coagulation and a number of other health benefits in humans.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, important for the function of numerous proteins within the body, such as the coagulation factors (II, VII, IX, X and protein C and protein S), osteocalcin (a bone-forming protein) and matrix-Gla protein (MGP) (an anti-calcification protein).

I am a 67 year old female. Two years ago my Dexa scan showed an 8.7 decrease in bone mineral density of the femoral neck. I then took strontium for 1 year. My most recent Dexa scan showed a 4.7 increase in bone mineral density of the femoral neck. The doctor is asking what am I doing?
