NOW® Vitamin K-2 is the most biologically active form of vitamin K to promote bone and cardiovascular health.

What is NOW® Vitamin K-2 100mcg?

Calcium is an essential nutrient that is important for building strong bones and teeth while also playing a crucial role in many biological processes. Vitamin K-2 is responsible for activating the calcium binding properties of these proteins.


Without the binding properties of vitamin K-2, calcium can build up in the arteries around the heart contributing to many heart related issues. Our NOW® Vitamin K-2 may help prevent this accumulation of calcium and deliver it to areas where the body most needs it.

Health Benefits of NOW® Vitamin K-2 100mcg:

  • Optimizes the calcium intake throughout our bodies 
  • Helps build strong bones and teeth 
  • Promotes a healthy heart and vascular system 
  • Includes the most bioavailable form of vitamin K-2

  • These benefits may be enhanced even further with a vitamin D supplement, which can have synergistic effects when combined with vitamin K-2.

    Why Our NOW® Vitamin K-2 100mcg is a Good Choice?

    Our NOW® Vitamin K-2 is derived from Menaquinone-4 (MK-4), the most rapidly absorbed form of vitamin K-2. We have also included 300mg of Alfalfa, another great source of vitamin K that is thought to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. The combination of vitamin K-2 and Alfalfa offers a comprehensive formula to get your daily vitamin K intake.

    Each serving delivers 100mcg of natural, high quality vitamin K-2!

    Vitamin K is needed for proper bone formation and blood clotting. In both cases, vitamin K does this by helping the body transport calcium. Vitamin K is used by doctors when treating an overdose of the drug warfarin. Also, doctors prescribe vitamin K to prevent excessive bleeding in people taking warfarin but requiring surgery.

    There is promising preliminary evidence that vitamin K2 (not vitamin K1), may improve a group of blood disorders known as myelodysplastic syndromes,1 which carry a significantly increased risk of progression to acute myeloid leukemia.

    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
