Everything we know about vitamin K2, isn’t everything there is to know about to vitamin K2.  Recent studies into vitamin K2 are now starting to show us just how important it is for healthy bones, healthy hearts and more.

Dedicated to our craft

As proud leaders in our industry, we at Kappa have a responsibility to advance what we know about vitamin K2, supporting research and engaging directly with the scientific community.

We also understand the value of truly independent research.
That means not interfering with scientists’ work, and studies that are conducted entirely independently. Their raw data and results are their raw data and results, we don’t see anything before data is ready for peer-reviewed publication.

By supporting research, we’re hoping to get even more of the scientific community involved, and discover more about vitamin K2, together.

Research areas

We’re a bioscience company through and through, with a global network of researchers, thought-leaders and K2 experts. Together, we are uncovering the future of vitamin K2, and discovering the benefits it can offer to everyone.

  • Bone Health: strength and maintenance
  • Cardiovascular Health: calcification prevention and reduction, heart health improvement
  • Immune Health: Improvement of inflammation markers and oxidative stress.
  • Mobility and Sports Nutrition: athletic performance, muscle mass, muscle recovery
  • Neurology: Parkinson’s disease

We’re proud to take a leading role in research, including running 10 clinical trials

The Kappa research network

A direct dialogue with scientists is more important than ever. We believe the internet makes it too easy for claims about health and nutrition to go unchecked.

Credible, reliable sources can be hard to come by, so we foster close relationships with a growing network of experts, all specialists in their field, all working together to shape the future of vitamin K2.
