WHAT IT IS:

Vi­ta­min K is a fat-sol­u­ble vi­ta­min that finds and con­trols cal­cium-reg­u­lat­ing pro­teins in the body, such as os­teo­cal­cin and ma­trix GLA-pro­tein. The multi-molec­u­lar K is di­vided into groups of short-chain menaquinones such as MK-4, and longchain menaquinones such as MK-7, MK-8, and MK-9. It is not to be con­fused with its mono-molec­u­lar cousin, vi­ta­min K , which is the pri­mary di­etary form of vi­ta­min K found in leafy greens.
