Description
 
Supplies vitamin K1 (500 mcg per drop) in an emulsified form to aid in the uptake and utilization of this important vitamin. Vitamin K status is important on bone health, and recent research has linked it to cardiovascular health as well.
Item is NOT A KOSHER PRODUCT.

Active Ingredients:
Vitamin K (as K1-phytonadione)
Other Ingredients:
Water, gum arabic and sesame seed oil.

Vitamin K1 is the primary dietary source of vitamin K, estimated to contribute about 40-50% of the total dietary intake. Functionally,
vitamin K is required as a cofactor in the posttranslational conversion of specific glutamate residues into γ-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla). In this function, the vitamin K dependent proteins play a diverse physiological role in cellular proliferation. Vitamin K dependent proteins also play an important role in the activation of the coagulation cascade, and in the maintenance of both the flow and the structural integrity of vascular tissues. For the past two decades, research in humans has correlated the risk of osteoporotic fractures with vitamin K insufficiency. Patients demonstrating osteoporotic fractures were shown to have a 70% decrease in vitamin K, as compared to age-matched controls. Consequently, mounting evidence suggests that higher intakes of vitamin K than previously recommended are needed for optimal bone health, as the current RDI may be too low to support the carboxylation of osteocalcin. Supplemental vitamin K (10mg/day) in female athletes with low-estrogen was demonstrated to increase the calcium-binding capacity of osteocalcin, resulting in a 15-20% increase in bone formation markers, along with a 20-25% decrease in bone resorption markers.

Why Bio-K-MulsionTM from Biotics Research Corporation?

Vitamin-K absorption depends on normal consumption and digestion of dietary fat. As an essential fat soluble nutrient , vitamin K may be inadequately absorbed, due to insufficiency in these factors. Biotics Research Corporation’s Bio-K-Mulsion
TM is emulsified for enhanced absorption, thus may be especially important in patients with fat malabsorption issues. As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to provide you with the “Best of Science and Nature”.

To follow the same protocol as suggested on the last product, the dosage for infants wiuld be 4 drops on the first day of life, followed by 4 drops on day 7 and then four drops again on day 28.

There are other protocols that other midwives use. One other dosage is One drop once a week for 12 weeks.

PLEASE let your health care provider decide on the right protocol as per your needs.
