Natural origin or synthetic?
Vitamin K2 or menaquinones comprises numerous compounds, of which the most superior is menaquinone-7 (MK-7) form. Gnosis by Lesaffre has been a pioneer in the development of vitamin K2 as MK-7.
There are two ways to obtain vitamin K2 in the MK-7 form: from a natural fermentation-based process and from synthesis. This position paper describes the differences between both pathways and highlights the specificities of vitamin K2 obtained through natural fermentation-based process from Gnosis by Lesaffre.
