K2 AND OLIVE
Why did Gnosis choose olive oil as carrier for a high beneficial product?
Due to its lipophilic structure MK-7 is soluble in olive oil. It is demonstrated that extra-virgin olive oil enriched with MK-7 significantly increases MK-7 plasma levels and has an effect on osteocalcin and its carboxylation status.
(Ref. F. Brué, T. Bacchetti, G.P. Littarru and L. Tiano. Olive oil supplemented with Menaquinone-7 significantly affects osteocalcin carboxylation. British Journal of Nutrition 2011, 1-5.)
Olive oil has been found to positively influence several risk factors related to heart disease. It can affect total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. It might also increase HDL cholesterol, which has a protective function. Olive oil related benefits also derive from their content in a series of antioxidants, which have been shown to antagonize lipid peroxidation and some connected events which favour atherogenesis.
Mediterranean Diet studies have long been associated with olive oil intake. Extensive research on its unique phytonutrient composition recognizes olive oil for its protective action.
