Discover how Vitamin K2 might change lives
In this recent webinar Dr. Kimmo Makinen, OneHealth Innovation Director, introduces the scientific evidence for Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 has been associated with many health benefits. Bone and heart health are the benefits supported by the largest body of evidence, but emerging science also shows promising results in sports performance and nerve health. Vitamin K2 plays a unique role in human health at many stages of life. However, supplementation may be needed as not all diets contain vitamin K2 and intestinal production by gut bacteria may not be sufficient.
