A Daily Dose of Pure Vitamin K2 for Cardiovascular and Bone Health

Food-based from Non-GMO Chickpeas not Soy; Premium Form for Maximum Bioavailability

A growing body of clinical evidence is showing that Vitamin K2 is as important as Vitamin D3 for the body to process calcium properly.

Without adequate levels of Vitamin K2, the bones cannot fully utilize the available calcium, resulting in osteoporosis. The unused calcium builds up in the arteries, creating cardiovascular disease. It’s a double whammy.

Vitamin K2 was discovered fairly recently, so nutritional scientists are still mapping its role. It appears to work as an activator for Vitamins D and A as well at least 17 different proteins. Preliminary research suggests potential benefits of Vitamin K2 for:

  • Skin health
  • Inflammation5
  • Conditions of the central nervous system8
  • Antitumor activities6
  • Mental acuity and brain health7

Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 is allergen friendly because it is made from chickpeas rather than soy. Our obsession with quality and purity led us to a premium source in Poland. We use the most bioavailable form of Vitamin K2, because if your body can’t absorb the nutrients, what’s the point?

Vitamin K2 works synergistically with Vitamin D3. Taken together they can amplify the positive effects of bone health 9 and cardiovascular function. For maximum benefit, pair Vitamin K2 with Nested Naturals Vitamin D3.

Vitamin K2 may counteract the effects of anticoagulation therapy, and therefore is not recommended for patients on blood thinning medications.

Maximum Bioavailability

Nested Naturals uses the more expensive, premium quality trans form of MK7 (Vitamin K2) because it’s the same form that is biologically active in the body.10

Soy-Free

Our Vitamin K2 is made from fermented chickpeas, not soy, so that our friends with allergies and sensitivities can enjoy the benefits of this important nutrient.

Cruelty-free and Vegan

We’ve made a conscious choice to make Vitamin K2 from ingredients derived only from vegetables. There’s no gelatin which is produced from animal bones and marrow. We’re proud to make our gel capsules from vegetables rather than animals.

Sourced in Poland, Not China

We don’t cut corners when it comes to quality and purity. Our obsession with sourcing the best ingredients available led us to Poland.

Made with Love

Your Questions, Our Answers

See the most popular questions asked about Vitamin K2.

Where is Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 sourced?

Our Vitamin K2 is made from fermented chickpeas. We are relentless about sourcing the best, most natural, most ethically produced ingredients available. While other brands cut corners by using low quality K2 from China, our source is NattoPharma’s Natural MenaQ7, which is the best documented, commercially available natural vitamin K2. It is manufactured in Poland and known for its purity and premium quality guarantees.

Is this Trans form of Vitamin K2?

Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 is 100% Trans form. Vitamin K2 comes in two forms: Trans and Cis. The human body can only use the Trans form. Many Vitamin K2 supplements try to keep costs down by using a cheaper mix (often 50/50) of the Trans form with the unuseable Cis form. We don’t think that’s right.

We use MenaQ7 which is natural Vitamin K2 and >99% Trans form and non-racemic (meaning it DOES NOT have equal amounts of both isomers).

Why doesn’t Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 contain Natto?

Natto is made from fermented soybeans. We made a conscious choice to avoid soy because it’s a common allergen. Instead, Nested Naturals Vitamin K2 is made from fermented chickpeas.

What is rice flour doing in Nested Naturals Vitamin K2?

Rice flour helps flow the supplement ingredients into the capsule. Miniscule amounts are used during the manufacturing process. You’ll find it listed under “Other Ingredients” on our label because we believe that you deserve to know everything that goes into our supplements and your body.

What is vegetable cellulose and what is it doing in Nested Naturals Vitamin K2?

We use vegetable cellulose to make our gel-caps. We’re proud to say that our capsules are vegan and don’t include any animal parts.

I have only been taking it for a short time, but I am happy with the purchase. I didn't want a soy product.

I received my order safely and the customer service was friendly and helpful. I've only just started taking the vitamin K2 so it's too early to review it yet.
Kevin A
Quality product. Uses the correct MenaQ7 (natural) as there are actually 3 different kinds of MenaQ7. The other 2 are either soy based or synthetic. Plus it has only two other ingredients. Rice flour and vegetable cellulose. Can't get better than that in looking for a quality K2 supplement.
