In April 2008, NattoPharma started a clinical intervention study with 244 postmenopausal women randomized to receive either MenaQ7® or placebo. The study has been conducted at VitaK at the Maastricht University in the Nederland’s and lead by Associate Professor of Biochemistry Cees Vermeer. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of a sustained intake of a low dose (180 mcg) of natural vitamin K2 (MenaQ7®) on both bone and vascular health parameters. Final results of this clinical study are expected to be released during 2012 and are likely to generate several scientific publications. The results will also be used for the important regulatory work worldwide.
