Calcium without vitamin K2 does not reach the bones and teeth, this can affect the abnormal deposition of the mineral in the blood vessels, causing their calcification. K2's function is to activate and enhance GLA proteins, including osteocalcin, which affects bone growth and remodeling and proper mineralization. Osteocalcin binds calcium in bones, and low amounts increase brittleness. Clinical studies have shown that vitamin K2 use is associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer, by as much as 63%. People who have undergone antibiotic therapy or are taking anticoagulants are most at risk of deficiency. Supplementation is recommended for people with atherosclerosis and the elderly, as well as those who consume large amounts of processed foods.
