FUNCTIONS AND MECHANISM OF ACTION
Vitamin K functions as a cofactor and enhances bone formation by carboxylation of osteocalcin. This enables
osteocalcin to bind to calcium and promote healthy bone mineralization. Vitamin K, or menaquinone, includes a
group of compounds that contain a central ring structure with varying side chains. These differing side chains
account for variations in absorption, bioavailability, transport, and tissue distribution. The most common
menaquinones are menaquinone–4 (MK–4) and menaquinone–7 (MK–7). Studies indicate that MK–7
concentrates in extra–hepatic tissues, including vascular tissues, and has a longer half–life compared to the
MK-4 form. In addition, vitamin K supports healthy blood vessels by functioning as a cofactor in the production
of blood coagulation factors and vessel walls.‡
