''This emerging trend in vitamin K2 supplemental use has been further supported by a double-blind clinical trial evaluating the results of a 3-year intake of natural menaquinone-7 (vitamin K2, MK-7) in a group of 244 healthy postmenopausal Dutch women, 55 to 65 years old, randomly assigned to receive either 180 mg MK-7 or identical placebo capsules daily . The clinical outcome of the study showed statistically significant protection of the vertebrae and the hip (femoral neck) against osteoporosis and fractures and also showed substantial benefits of nutritional vitamin K2 compared to the placebo group in preventing age-related stiffening of arteries manifested by a significant increase of the pulse wave velocity, a sign of aging and calcified arterial walls.''
