Q & A: Does vitamin K2 MK7 really help?
Venu Gopal: This K2 MK7 really help? Nobody knows. There’s clearly evidence that it does. I have started taking it
again I looked at the original clinical trials on K2, and some of them are good
sometimes, some of them show evidence. Some of them don’t. The only one that
really shows significant evidence is the Rotterdam trial. And the question is, “Is
that enough to prove that there’s something going on?” The answer is no. It
doesn’t really prove it. It’s not clear at this point, but there’s a lot of other
interesting information about osteocalcin and a couple of other
enzymes that not only are carboxylated, in other words, activated by K2. They also
are very much related to insulin resistance. So it may be another one of
those things called pleiotropic effects. Pleiotropic, meaning
impacts different several different places, several different perspectives.
