- Calcium and Vitamin D
- Promotes Strong Bones and Hormone Balance
- Reduces Calcification of Soft Tissue
- Beneficial in Reducing Symptoms of Menopause
Genistein MK-7 is a must product for women going through menopause and post-menopause. This is the only genistein product that also combines a significant amount of Vitamin K2 (MK-7), for maximum protection against bone mineral density (BMD) loss and calcification of soft tissue. It has also been clinically tested and shown to reduce the symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats.
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is caused by a sharp decrease in estrogen levels that leads to an increased rate of bone remodeling. While hormone replacement therapy is effective in reducing postmenopausal bone loss, it is associated with a higher risk for breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancer; cardiovascular disease, venuous thromboembolism; and stroke. Genistein has been shown to positively affect normal bone mass without the potential side effects of hormone replacement therapy.
Genistein has also been shown to be beneficial in reducing the symptoms of menopause. In several clinical studies, Genistein has reduced the severity and sequence of hot flashes and night sweats without an adverse effect on endometrim.
Vitamin K2 is involved in the production of two bone building, calcium binding proteins; calbindin and osteocalcin. These proteins are involved with calcium uptake and health bone mineralization. Vitamin K2 is also involved with the production of matrix Gla-protein (MGP). MGP is a powerful inhibitor of calcification of the arteries and cartilage. Lack of calcification of the arteries helps promote proper cardiovascular health. Vitamin K2 is unique in the fact that while it promotes calcification and mineralization of the bones, it tends to inhibit calcification of soft tissue. The synergistic effect of Genistein and Vitamin KS MK-7 for age-related bone health may be significant.
Calcium is probably the most important mineral element for skeletal integrity. Genistein MK-7 is not intended to be a substitue for maintaining a calcium rich diet, or also taking a high quality calcium supplement. Vitamin D is essential for the absorption and effective utilization of calcium in the body. Genistein MK-7 is a booster for those who are at risk for age-related bone loss by providing additional fuel for the body's natural mechanisms to work more efficiently.
