Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone) is a type of Vitamin K. This vitamin can contribute to normal blood clotting, therefore a lack of Vitamin K can lead to unwanted bleeding. Another health benefit of this Vitamin is that it contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. Vitamin K can be found in many foods, such as: milk, spinach, cabbage and other green vegetables. Vitamin K is a fat soluble Vitamin, fat soluble Vitamins are stored in the body’s fat tissue and can stay there a long time, potentially building to dangerous levels. This is why Vitamin A, D, E and K are found in small doses. There are two types of vitamin K2, short chain menaquinones and long chain menaquinones. MK-4 (menaquinones 4) is an example of a short chain, the biological half-life of MK-4 is approximately 1 hour to an hour and a half. This is significantly shorter than long chain menaquinones. Long chain menaquinones such as MK-7 and MK-9 have biological half-life times of serval days. Our vitamin K2 MK-7 powder is extract from Natto, and the source of this item is Bacillus subtilis natto.

The commonly known “Garlic” is grown on the native Asian plant, Allium Sativum. The Allium Sativum is part of the Lily family and is best grown in environments with a high water content such as riverbeds. The plant grows to around half a metre and develops bulbous roots that are used for extract. It is well known for its use as a flavouring in cooking, but its use in medicine far precedes this.
There is evidence of medicinal use as far back as 1,500BC in Ancient Egypt, Greece, India and China. History shows that Garlic was a method of payment and a staple part of the diet for workers building the pyramids. It was also used as food for soldiers in Greece and Rome as they believed it gave them strength.
Modern science has now dictated the real benefits and how these affect the body. The active ingredient is of Garlic is Allicin. Allicin is an organic sulphur based compound. The main property of Allicin is its anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal nature. This is incredibly beneficial to health as it regulates the pathogenic levels, between narrow limits within the body. This leads to promotion of immunity and balance of the healthy microbiota in the gut. In addition to this, Garlic is rich with antioxidant properties that lead to a decrease in cell damage and onset of disease.
The role of an antioxidant is complex, but it scavenges harmful particles called free radicals that attack tissue integrity via oxidation. There is also evidence to show the beneficial effects of Garlic on respiratory health, by regulating its function. Lastly, it has been linked with the therapeutic regulation of blood glucose concentration, promotion of insulin secretion and maintenance of healthy carbohydrate metabolism.
