Post time: Aug-09-2023

We are honored to announce that our RiviK2® series family welcomes an exciting new member - Vitamin K2 (fermented) micro-encapsulated powder. The innovative product has better application performance and characteristics, it helps manufacturers solve key pain points and meets the stability requirements of K2 in alkaline minerals formulations.


Efficacy of Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 (MK-7) is a fat-soluble vitamin with multiple health benefits in bone health, cardiovascular health, and more.


Calcium cannot enter the blood directly, and needs to pass through the difficult intestinal mucosal cells. Vitamin D3 helps form osteocalcin, which opens channels in the membranes of intestinal cells, allowing calcium ions to pass quickly into the blood. Vitamin K2 activates osteocalcin (OC) and matrix Gla protein (MGP) to “lead calcium into bone” and reduce calcium deposits in blood vessels.

Pain Point of Vitamin K2 Application

Alkaline mineral salts are a key factor in K2 degradation, especially when formulated with calcium citrate and magnesium oxide. This factor can reduce the retention rate of vitamin K2 in the end product.

In order to solve the above problems and improve the stability of K2 in the formula of alkaline mineral salts, RiviK2® series launched the new vitamin K2 micro-encapsulated powder.


Advantages of RiviK2® Micro-encapsulated Powder

1. The product is in uniform granular form, showing the excellent uniformity of K2 essays and great fluidity.


2. Significantly improving the stability of K2 in alkaline minerals formulations, effectively reducing the excess addition factor.


According to the accelerated test results in the above report, RiviK2® vitamin K2 micro-encapsulated powder itself has excellent stability.
