Tri-K provides a clinically useful dose of vitamin K in three forms in order to correct a widespread deficiency of this vitamin. This new vitamin K formula provides:
- 1000 mcg Vitamin K1 -the naturally occurring form of vitamin K in vegetables. Research tells us that 1-2 mg daily is ideal for promoting optimal function of the GLA proteins, which safely direct calcium in the body.
- 1000 mcg Vitamin K2- in the MK-4 highly bioavailable form. Antibiotics in the food supply reduce the intestinal bacteria that produces vitamin K2. Also, poor conversion of K1 to K2 in some people makes supplementation with K2 (MK-4) important.
- 50 mcg Vitamin K2 – in the MK-7 form. This is produced by food fermentation (free of soy allergens) that has the special property of metabolizing slowly throughout the day, providing a continuous source of vitamin K between supplementations.
All forms of vitamin K are fat soluble and should be taken with a meal. Lecithin was added to enhance absorption.
