Meet Vitamin K2-7
Vitamin K2 is known as the “Activator X” super-nutrient that Weston A. Price – a dentist known primarily for his theories on the relationship between nutrition, good health, bone development and teeth – found prevalent in foods in the most healthiest communities (read more in this book, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox).
A growing body of published research confirms Dr. Price’s discoveries, namely that vitamin K2 is:
- Supports heart health
- Important for the utilization of minerals
- Protects against tooth decay
- Supports growth and development
- Is involved in normal reproduction
- Supports bone health by protecting against calcification of the arteries
- Is a major component of the brain
Vitamin K2 works (optimally) together with two other fat-soluble vitamins that Price studied, vitamins A and D. Vitamins A and D signal to the cells to produce certain proteins and vitamin K then activates these proteins. Vitamin K2 plays a crucial role in the development of the facial bones, and its presence in the diets of non-industrialized peoples explains the wide facial structure and freedom from dental deformities that Dr. Price observed.
WHY VITAMIN K2-7
Vitamin K2 has been featured in the press a lot lately, and for good reason. Vitamin K2 comes with huge benefits including reducing the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis. Some even say Vitamin K2 is arguably the most important dietary supplement, especially since it’s not found in sufficient quantities in the Western diet.
Most people have heard of Vitamin K1, a vitamin found in our daily diet that activates proteins in regulating the thickness of our blood; however, little was known about the power of Vitamin K2-7, until recently. In fact, Vitamin K2-7 is found in every tissue of our body, and is therefore a necessary and critical activator in many of the key functions of our body’s health.
VITAMIN K2-7 and VITAMIN D
These days, everyone is advising that we all take more Vitamin D. Doctors, writers, bloggers and more can’t stress how important Vitamin D is to your body. BUT…
Recent studies have shown that high doses of Vitamin D can lead to Vitamin D toxicity, especially in a person who is deficient in Vitamin K2. In other words, a person who is taking high doses of Vitamin D and is also K2 deficient may experience an increase in calcification of arteries and tissues. This increase can harden and disrupt your body’s normal processes, disrupt organ function and affect blood vessels, leading to cardiovascular disease.
If you’re taking Vitamin D or Calcium supplements, studies have shown that you should also be taking the correct amount and dosage of Vitamin K2, otherwise you are at a MUCH higher risk for osteoporosis and heart disease. Even if you are not taking either of these supplements, most everyone is deficient in Vitamin K2, which plays an important role in your body for preventing disease (and helping you age well!), because it’s very difficult to get enough in our food even if you eat a healthy diet.
BENEFITS OF VITAMIN K2-7
There are huge benefits that come with taking a vitamin K2 supplement. In fact, some researches say vitamin K2 is one of the most important dietary supplements out there, especially since the Western diet is so vitamin K deficient. Of the many benefits, Vitamin K2 has been shown in studies to help reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis.

Stability & Potency of Just Thrive® K2-7
What else makes Just Thrive® K2-7 the best vitamin K2 supplement out there? Stability and potency.
Just Thrive® K2-7 features a very stable compound, which does not degrade and reduce potency. This is important because Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 is a very active compound, and therefore very sensitive to the manufacturing process. Specifically, vitamin K2 is very sensitive to light and heat, so it has to be formulated carefully to withstand bottling and encapsulating process. Because it has not been damaged by the light & heat, Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 has the highest potency available on the retail market.
No other supplements in the US have taken quality measures like this. Often times, with other vitamin K2 products, there’s a significant decrease of what’s being claimed on the label to what’s actually in the product. Based on our testing and even testing from organizations like Consumer Labs, the majority of K2 supplements out on the market have little to no stability.
Because it is important to feel confident that you are getting the full dose of K2, it’s important to take the best Vitamin K2 supplement on the market, Just Thrive® K2-7. Just Thrive® K2-7 is an all-natural pharmaceutical grade product where 100% potency is guaranteed.
Just Thrive K2-7 Contains the Optimum Dose
Just Thrive® is the only Vitamin K2-7 product available in the retail market with this optimal therapeutic dose of 320 microorganisms/day. Generally, the highest dose of Vitamin K2 available on the market is 150mcg, but research suggests that a larger optimum dose of 320 mcg is the therapeutic dose for optimal carboxylation of proteins. Also, our 320mcg dose gives major cardiac output benefits and mitochondrial benefits as well. With that in mind, there’s no reason to be taking a lower dose.
Just Thrive K2-7 Has Supportive Ingredients
Just Thrive® is the only Vitamin K2 available in the retail market with the two main essential elements for maximum effectiveness: Magnesium and Zinc Gluconate. Without zinc and magnesium, K2 does not function optimally and people tend to be deficient in those co-factors.
Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 also contains supportive ingredient Vitamin K1, which is needed for release by the liver in order to optimize the bioavailability of K2-7. Vitamin K-1 is the clotting vitamin – the one responsible for helping to clot blood, and also the one that you have to be careful about ingesting if you’re on Coumadin or Heparin or other blood thinner meds. Vitamin K-1 is also the one that you will find in regular multivitamin supplements. It is not the same as K2.
WHERE DOES VITAMIN K2-7 COME FROM?
Early evidence about the beneficial qualities of vitamin K2 comes from Eastern Japan where consumption of natto – a Japanese fermented soybean dish replete with K2 – is common.
Researchers noticed that rates of osteoporosis, diabetes, senile dementia and heart disease in Eastern Japan were much lower, and certainly far lower than in the U.S. In more than 2000 published studies over the last ten years, scientists have confirmed that incredible health benefits experienced in Eastern Japan came from the crucial nutrient, Vitamin K2.
So why are we all so deficient? Multiple validated studies revealed that most people are deficient in Vitamin K2-7 because its highest natural sources are only found in organ meat, fermented cheeses from Germany, and natto. So, unless you’re consistently eating these sources, a healthy diet alone isn’t enough to give sustain or replenish your necessary levels of Vitamin K2.
Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 is the FIRST complete dose of Vitamin K2-7, containing 320 mcg of natural vitamin K2-7 and the only vitamin K supplement that contains magnesium, and zinc.
Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 is contains MenaquinGold™ vitamin K2, a prescription grade source of K2-7. This source of natural K2-7 was created for the pharmaceutical market whereas most other K2 supplements are not manufactured to pharmaceutical standards. Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7 is the ONLY vitamin K2 supplement with published safety studies, and MenaquinGold™ has demonstrated the highest degree of stability, quality and safety.
There are 60 capsules in each bottle of Just Thrive® Vitamin K2-7. It is ideally recommended to take two capsules daily. If you're unsure, we advise you speak to your doctor or nutritionist to help determine the correct dose for your specific needs.
