Evidence-Based, Bone Density & Cardiovascular Support
Natural Healthy Bone Density
Designed exclusively to
bone density & mineralization, Ostea K2 is a new paradigm product providing essential
nutrients that support a healthy musculo-skeletal system, based on the latest
scientific research and features Natural Vitamin K2, specifically Menaquinone 7
(MK-7) which supports healthy bone density. Ostea K2 is available in small, easy-to-swallow vegetarian
capsules for convenient dosing.
Contains Only Laboratory Qualified Vitamin K-2 (MK7)*
research has identified other valuable dietary factors that positive impact
bone density. Researchers found that Natural Vitamin K2 (specifically
Menaquinone 7, also called MK-7) from natto (soy) has been linked to
stabilization of bone proteins, thereby positively impacting bone
density. Not only is Natural Vitamin K2 (particularly MK-7) important for
healthy bones, scientists have discovered that
MK-7 supports cardiovascular health.
Pure Scientific's parent company
worked with a preeminent laboratory to develop the validated analytical laboratory methods used to identify real and pure MK-7 in Vitamin K2. Only
qualified, laboratory-certified MK-7 is used in Ostea K2 because this is ideal form documented in the latest published scientific literature.
Current research shows that MK-7 has a much
longer half life (stays in the body longer) than other forms of Vitamin K2,
such as MK-4, making it the Vitamin K2 form of choice for bone density support.
The Calcium Paradox: Why Calcium Won't Improve Bone Density
The Nurses Health Study
The WHI CaD study is the
largest study ever conducted on calcium supplementation reported in the New
England Journal of Medicine, followed over 36,000 post menopausal women for 7
years. Half the women took 1,000 mg of Calcium & 400 IU of Vitamin D
daily; the other half took a placebo. The study showed that women taking
placebos had a fracture rate (indicator of bone density) of 14/10,000.
The fracture rate for women taking supplements was only 10/10,000. While
the trend is favorable, the message of the study is that "Calcium &
Vitamin D are not enough," reported
Dr. Joel S. Finkelstein, an osteoporosis researcher at the Massachussets
General Hospital in Boston.
widespread marketing of calcium and vitamin D, many women believe that they are
completely protected against the development of Osteoporosis if they are taking
these supplements. This study should help correct this important
misconception and allow more women to receive optimal therapy for bone health."
He concludes, "It is a good start, but women at higher risk need to know
it is not enough."

Even Vitamin K2 Alone is Not Enough
Osteoporosis International reported
no benefits to bone health after 12 months of supplementation with
360 micrograms of vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7, MK-7).
However, Professor Cees Vermeer at
the VitaK research center in Maastricht, a global leader in vitamin
K research, said that the new study did not fulfill criteria in order to
fully examine if vitamin K2 could affect bone health, specifically noting that
each arm of the study should contain at least 50 people, and that the study
should last for at least two years.
A number of previous studies appear
to support the benefits of vitamin K for bone health. A significant body of evidence also exists supporting a
role for K2 in cardiovascular health. Emerging evidence also
supports a potential role for joint health.
