Bio-K Forte Caps® contains a combination of vitamins K1 and K2, each of which targets different tissues in the body. The K1 family of compounds (phylloquinones), synthesized in green leafy vegetables and in plant leaves, is the primary dietary source of vitamin K, estimated to contribute about 40-50% of the total dietary intake. Unlike phylloquinones, menaquinones (K2) are present in both human and animal tissues, and are largely synthesized by the gut microflora. Vitamin K2 is associated with beneficial cardiovascular attributes, and is believed to suppress arterial calcification via γ-carboxylation of matrix glutamic acid residues. Vascular calcification is considered a major complication in cardiovascular disease.
Although both forms of vitamin K are effective with spontaneous bruising, long term antibiotics use, low fat diets, and cardiovascular and arterial health, the vitamin K-1/vitamin K-2 combinations have proven most effective.
Bio-K Forte Caps™ contain superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase. SOD is an enzyme that may be useful and assists cell repair and provides antioxidant protection against cellular damage from free radicals and environmental toxins. Catalase in an enzyme that converts hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water, also showing strong antioxidant properties.
