Why MenaQ7® is the Heart Healthy Vitamin

February is Heart Health Month, and a good time for people to pay attention to their cardiovascular health. Let us encourage women, especially, to speak up for their health – and that starts from the heart. 

For a supplement brand to provide real health benefits to its audience, getting the message out is key. When it comes to something as foundational to our health and well-being as heart health, personalizing the messaging is crucial to educate and encourage specific demographics to act. Although considered a “man’s disease,” compromised heart health is the leading cause of death for women in the US.* And did you know MenaQ7® is the only K2 proven to support women’s heart health? 

Why Should ?Women Look for MenaQ7® in Their Supplements

Clinical trials concerning women’s health are few and far between. The Lancet reports that cardiovascular disease among women is under studied, under diagnosed, and under-represented in clinical trials. Although this is concerning, we are proud that our MenaQ7® is clinically proven to support women’s cardiovascular health, and therefore represents a part of the solution. 

Our groundbreaking 3-year study, published in Thrombosis and Haemostasis, showed post-menopausal women taking a daily nutritional dose of 180 mcg of MenaQ7®, not only inhibited age-related arterial stiffening but also promoted vascular elasticity. 

Most recently, a poster and abstract of the findings from our 1-year follow-up study were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress. The authors confirmed that hormonal changes in women affect the vasculature and leaves post-menopausal women at higher risk. The study showed improved K2 status improves arterial stiffness and blood pressure in post-menopausal women. 

Nutritional Needs and Supplementation are Part of the Answer

With the rising awareness of lifestyle’s impact on health, there is a growing trend toward proactive health choices. More consumers understand the connection between good heart health and overall well-being and are looking for guidance in ensuring more individual needs are met. 

Taking a daily MenaQ7® supplement is an easy strategy proven to support heart health and should be a staple ingredient in any heart-smart formulation that aims to bring true benefits to its audience.
