Vitamin K


Clinical Study Title:
Vitamin K2 (menatetrenone) effectively prevents fractures and sustains lumbar bone mineral density in osteoporosis.

Plain English Summary:
This study looked at the use of vitamin K to aid in preventing fractures related to osteoarthritis. This study lasted for 2 years and involved 241 participants already diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Half the participants received the vitamin K supplement, while the other half did not receive anything. Those participants who received the vitamin K had fewer fractures during the study. This suggests that this form of vitamin K supplements can help to reduce the number of fractures in participants with osteoarthritis.
