- Scientific TitleEffect of vitamin K supplementation on bone mineral density of the spine and hip, on markers of osteoblast and osteoclast activity, and on markers of soft tissue calcification, in Greek postmenopausal women.
- hypothesisVitamin K2 is more effective than K1 in reducing osteoclast activity, and in the carboxylation of osteocalcin and MGP

- Brief summaryVitamin K is essential for the carboxylation of among others osteocalcin and Matrix gla protein. The type of vitamin K might have an important impact on effectivity. Vitamin K1 has shown to be effective with regard to bone but is also very effective in the system of blood clotting. Especially for patients on anti-clotting therapy enrichment with vitamin K1 might cause problems. Vitamin K2, and especially the longer menoquinones are thought to be more specialized with regard to the carboxylation reactions whereas the effect on blood clotting is minimalized. This study investigates the difference between equal doses of vitamin K1 and K2 (MK-7) on carboxylation of osteocalcin and matrix gla, on bone mineral density and on markers of osteoblast and osteoclast activity. Furthermore, this study will provide us safety data on long term use of vitamin K1 versus vitamin K2. The study will be performed in apparently healthy Greek postmenopausal women and will last for 12 months.
