Dosage Form and Benefits
K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM leverages the technology of Direct Compressed chewing gums (DC-gums) which protect sensitive ingredients. No heat or moisture are involved in the DC-gums manufacturing process, ensuring that sensitive ingredients retain their form and bioactivity. The innovative K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM dosage form also provides several benefits over traditional capsules and tablets. The vitamin K2 and D3 active ingredients are released during chewing, dissolved in saliva and absorbed via the oral cavity and stomach. This provides rapid availability without the burden of unnecessary waste products in the body. The DC-gums format also improves oral hygiene and can prevent bad breath. Finally, the gums format addresses the problems associated with difficulty swallowing traditional capsules and tablets. The K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM dosage format is adaptable to a wider range of consumer types and product categories. This product offers the option of additional co-ingredients and flavor choice to improve consumer targeting. K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM is Vegan acceptable.
K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM combines the synergistic health benefits of vitamin K2 MK-7 and vitamin D3. K2 is an essential vitamin, vital for bone and heart health. K2 activates osteocalcin and matrix Gla proteins (MGP) which balance calcium in the body – sending it to bones and away from the heart where it can be dangerous. Vitamin D3 aids K2 absorption, helping to make it available for use. Together these vitamins make calcium more efficient and effective. By combining K2 and D3 in a convenient, no-need-to-swallow dosage format, K2VITAL® CHEWING GUM serves a range of consumer types who may not be receiving adequate K2 from diet or multivitamin supplements. Seniors and children are among large numbers of the population who report difficulty swallowing tablets and capsules. The chewing gum format eliminates the need for swallowing entirely, and because K2 and D3 can increase the safety and effectiveness of calcium already in the diet, this product may reduce the need for taking supplemental calcium in capsules or tablets.
