Live Wise Naturals K2 combines nutrients from Vitamin K2 (as MK-7) from fermented chickpeas to promote a wide variety of vital functions in the human body from healthy blood clotting to the stabilization of proper blood sugar levels, the maintenance of balanced hormone levels, decreasing inflammation and supporting bone health.
How Live Wise Naturals K2 (as MK-7) from fermented Chickpeas Keeps You Healthy
Vitamin K2, also called menaquinone, is made by the bacteria that line your gastrointestinal tract and goes straight to your blood vessel walls, bones, and plays an important role in tissue renewal and cell growth.
Promotes Healthy Blood Clotting
Vitamin K1 is known to be effective in preventing and treating poor blood clotting caused by vitamin K deficiency or induced by certain medications. Vitamin K2 has also been shown to be effective and apparently more potent in supporting healthy blood clotting.(1)
Supports the Stabilization of Blood Sugar Levels
Vitamin K2 deficiency is associated with insulin resistance and diabetes and supplementing with Vitamin K2 supports the stabilization of healthy blood sugar levels and your body’s proper response to sugar consumption.(2)
Promotes Decreased Inflammation
Research has shown that MK-7 helps prevent excessive inflammation by inhibiting pro-inflammatory markers produced by white blood cells called monocytes.(3)
Supports Healthy Cellular Functions such as Energy Production
Vitamin K2 has been shown to be necessary and “rescue” mitochondrial dysfunction serving to help maintain normal cellular energy production and produce more energy more quickly.(4)
Helps to Reduce the Incidence of Cancer and the Risk of Dying from Cancer by Supporting Healthy Tissue Renewal and Cell Growth
Vitamin K2 might also be a potent anti-cancer agent by targeting key factors in cell growth and metastasis-promoting molecules. A multi-year population study showed that people who consumed larger amounts of foods know to contain vitamin K2 had a statistically lower risk of dying from cancer and men also had a statistically significant decrease in the incidence of cancer, particularly prostate and lung cancers. (5, 6, 7)
Helps Direct Calcium to Bones
Vitamin K2 continues to shine as a vitamin that supports multiple aspects of bone health and development. Vitamin K2 plays a direct role in transporting calcium from the blood into bone tissue by activating two key calcium transport proteins. In doing so, Vitamin K2 reduces calcification of arteries by directing calcium to where it is supposed to be, in your bones. (8, 9, 10, 11)
Supports Balanced Hormone Levels and Bone Health
Vitamin K2 has an important relationship with estrogen and bone health. Estrogen and bone density both decline during menopause and postmenopausal women are often markedly deficient in vitamin K2. Bone health may be improved in postmenopausal women by restoring adequate vitamin K2 levels. Vitamin K2 acts in the bone loss pathway in a number of areas specific to the bone loss caused by low estrogen levels. Vitamin K2 also plays a role in estrogen metabolism levels itself. Additionally, testosterone levels and sperm production may be improved by osteocalcin, the hormone activated by vitamin K2.(12, 13)
What Makes Live Wise Naturals K2 (as MK-7) from fermented Chickpeas Unique
This amazing and patented product is manufactured in the USA and contains Vitamin K2 as MK7 from fermented chickpeas instead of Vitamin K2 products that are derived from natto which is made from soy.
Many people are allergic to soy and should avoid Vitamin K2 products derived from natto. Live Wise Naturals K2 is derived from chickpeas which allow individuals with allergies and sensitivities to enjoy the benefits of this important nutrient without a potential allergic reaction.
Although soy is recognized for its health benefits, the isoflavones in soy may disrupt hormone balance. Soy is a phytoestrogen that mimics the body's naturally occurring hormone functions. But these same estrogenic compounds (isoflavones) can have a negative effect on female hormones when consumed in large amounts.(14) Live Wise Naturals K2 derived from chickpeas allows individuals to enjoy the benefits of this vital nutrient without the potential negative impact on hormone balance.
