MediKor Labs Vitamin K2 capsules contain MenaquinGold – a natural Vitamin K2 known as menaquinone (MK-7, Vitamin K2-7). The ingredient MenaquinGold is manufactured by Synergia Life Sciences a subsidiary of Viridis Biopharma, using proprietary fermentation technology in a dedicated certified GMP facility.
Decades of testing and over 300 published studies prove that Vitamin K2 is an essential nutrient. Without sufficient vitamin K2 intake, the population will suffer from cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, prostate cancer, etc. It is, in addition, an essential nutrient to supplement as our dietary intake of this compound is dangerously low. Vitamin K2 thus embodies the purpose and the spirit of the Dietary Supplement industry itself, it is essential for health and supplementation is required.
Recognizing this, several companies have pursued the production of commercial, bulk vitamin K2; this is no easy task. Unfortunately many have failed. Natural vitamin K2 comes from fermentation, specifically natto fermentation. MenaquinGold is manufactured by Synergia Life Sciences by a proprietary submerged fermentation process using Bacillus subtillis During this fermentation process, other compounds are also produced and released into the media, including other forms of vitamin K. The target compound (vitamin K2-7) can easily be lost in this mixture, think about a literal needle in a haystack. Even if you do find it, how do you know you have it? This requires a proven analytical/detection method.
Without a proper detection method, it is next to impossible to validate a manufacturing process as you cannot be sure that vitamin K2-7 is being produced. This is where most manufacturers are failing. They believe they are producing K2, but without a validated detection method, they cannot be certain and they cannot test for parameters such as stability, concentration, analogs, etc.
MenaquinGold is verified by 2 independent laboratories
As part of the development of the equivalent Drug Master File, various aspects of MenaquinGold have to be validated by a third party laboratory. Two independent highly accredited analytical laboratories have validated the analytical procedures of Synergia manufactured MenaquinGold.
Ensuring Formulation Stability
MenaquinGold has been successfully formulated into various dosage forms by several companies.The ingredient MenaquinGold has be studied for both long term and accelerated stability. This gives tremendous confidence to supplement formulators on the quality of ingredient for their formulations.
Dedicated to Vitamin K2
During the last 4 years of extensive research on vitamin K2 from production to clinical usage, Viridis Biopharma has identified several new indications for vitamin K2. These indications have been filed for patent protection and further studies have been commissioned to provide clinical substantiation. Synergia/Viridis is among the few supplier of K2 with a broad range of applications available that will likely be patent protected. Viridis has made significant capital investment in the development of the science behind vitamin K2 and thus will have within their portfolio a number of patent protected applications.Further MenaquinGold has been studied for safety through several toxicity and safety studies resulting in a self affirmed GRAS status. MenaquinGold is Kosher and Halal Certified.
