Question: Have you tested vitamin K supplements with MenaQ7? Is this a good source of vitamin K if I need to avoid soy?
Answer: MenaQ7 (NattoPharma ASA) is a branded vitamin K ingredient in the MK-7 form which is derived from chickpea protein. Its manufacturer claim it is soy-free. As most MK-7 is derived from soy, an alternative like this could be of benefit for people who need to avoid soy due to a soy allergy, or other concerns.
In 2017, ConsumerLab.com tested a product containing MenaQ7, but the product did not pass testing. To see the results for this or other vitamin K products, as well as our Top Picks and information about usage, dosage, and safety, see the Vitamin K Supplements Review >>
Be sure not confuse MenaQ7 with an ingredient which has a similar sounding name but is derived from soy. For more about this, see the Cautions and Concerns section of the Vitamin K Supplements Review.
