KINON 30 tablets
The important fact that vitamin K contributes to the metabolism of calcium is detected by scientists relatively soon. European Agency for Food Safety confirmed that vitamin K is needed for bone health.
The process of bone mineralization
In the human body organs and systems are closely linked, so that the normal functioning of a system affect the proper operation of other systems. The human body constantly perform processes of production and degradation. The balance between production and decomposition is particularly important in the formation and maintenance of normal bone.
Bone tissue is composed of bone cells and solid matrix (matrix) mineralized with calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate, which give the bones. Bone cells called osteoclasts break down outdated and damaged bone while the other type of cells - osteoblasts - produce and form new bone. Growth and bone mineralization are most intense during childhood and adolescence. Maximum bone mass is achieved around 30 years of age. Later bone weight decreases; Women flipped density loss is exacerbated by hormonal changes before and during menopause.
The right balance between the process of osteoclast-initiated degradation and bone formation by osteoblasts is very important for bone health. This balance may be affected not only because of lack of calcium or hormonal imbalance, but also due to lack of specific vitamins and micronutrients in the diet or because of their low digestibility. If this continues for a long time, bones lose density and weight, become more brittle and easily break even mild trauma. This condition is osteoporosis so-called "silent epidemic" because developed and unnoticed person understands that this is a problem only when breaking a bone. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis occurs in one of every three women and one in five men over the age of 50 years. It is alleged that the possibility of developing osteoporosis depends on the quantity of minerals in bones that accumulate at a young age, so it is very important not only to get calcium from their diet, but also to have normal calcium metabolism in the body all ages.
The role of vitamin K in the process of mineralization
Vitamin K plays an important role in mineralization because activated protein osteocalcin released by osteoblasts, which is capable of binding calcium and it accumulates in bones. If the protein osteocalcin is not activated properly, it binds calcium and minerals remains as excess blood. There are studies that show that deficiency of vitamin K and calcium excess in the blood stream can lead to the formation of deposits of calcium in the blood vessel wall, which favors their calcification.
Facts About Vitamin K:
The human body does not accumulate vitamin C, only small amounts of this vitamin is found in liver, bone and are used only for a few days;
Vitamin K may be absent in the body in the event of abnormal absorption (especially when prolonged intake of antibiotics and anticoagulants). Furthermore, the need for this vitamin for maintaining bone health can be greater than the amount that would normally be taken with food;
Vitamin K enters in two forms: Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone), which is found in plants and vitamin K2 (menaquinone) - in meat, egg yolk and milk products. Most vitamin K2 contained in a Japanese food product fermented soybeans. Vitamin K2 is also synthesized by the intestinal microflora of the organism;
It is alleged that menaquinone-7 (form of vitamin K2) remained longer in the blood serum than any other form of vitamin K and is well utilized by the human body;
It has been shown that vitamin K is involved in mineralization of bones and is important for the normal state of the bone, its structure, construction and maintenance;
Vitamin K2 is involved in the activation of the protein osteocalcin, which has properties of binding calcium and is produced by osteoblasts and thus facilitates the process of bone mineralization. In the absence of this vitamin, protein osteocalcin, which binds calcium, it becomes inactive, so that the processes of bone mineralization in violated;
Studies have shown that the absence of vitamin K2 in the body or its solubility, affect the low weight loss of the bone, increase the risk of osteoporosis and bone fragility, therefore, it is important that the body to receive a sufficient amount thereof;
It has been found that vitamin K2 is involved in activation of matrix Gla protein (MGP), that inhibits the accumulation of calcium in the aorta or other blood vessels. The study found that lack of vitamin K2 may cause cardiovascular calcification;
Summing study conducted for more than 10 years, involving 4807 adults (aged 55 years and above) showed that a large amount of vitamin K2 is connected to a lower degree of calcification of the aorta and consequently lower frequency of occurrence of coronary heart disease.
Importance of Vitamin K is beyond doubt, but not all aspects of its operation are investigated fully so that scientists continue to conduct research to determine the full significance of this vitamin for the human body.
