Doctor's Best, Inc. Key Developments

Doctor's Best Introduces Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7™

Doctor's Best has introduced Natural Vitamin K2 — MenaQ7™ into its dietary supplement line. Scott Steinford, president of Doctor's Best, made the announcement. This product comes as 180 vegetable capsules, each delivering 45 mcg of natural vitamin K2 as MenaQ7™. Natural Vitamin K2 MenaQ7™ is the superior form of vitamin K for optimum bioavailability and delivery to the body. MenaQ7™ is purified from natto, a traditional Japanese fermented soy food that is naturally rich in vitamin K2. Not just a single vitamin, Vitamin K is a family of fat-soluble vitamins with similar structures, but different metabolic properties. Vitamin K2 belongs to the group of vitamin K compounds called “menaquinones” which demonstrate greater bioactivity when compared to vitamin K1 (the ordinary form of supplemental vitamin K). MenaQ7™ is designated as MK-7, for menaquinone 7, which refers to the length of the structurally related molecular side chains associated with the molecule. MK-7 is the primary menaquinone found naturally in fermented foods. Recent scientific studies reveal that MK-7 contributes to optimum vitamin K storage in the body and functions most effectively for promoting healthy bones. Vitamin K2 is absorbed more completely, remains in the body longer, and delivers more benefits for bones, blood vessels and other soft tissues.

Doctor’s Best Introduces Quick Melt Fully Active B12 into its Dietary Supplement Line

Doctor's Best announced that it has introduced Quick Melt Fully Active B12 into its dietary supplement line. This product is available in 60 tablets, each providing a generous 1000 micrograms of the methylcobalamin form of vitamin B12. Quick Melt Fully Active B12 features a pleasant-tasting ORTHO vitamin featuring methylcobalamin B12. This fully active form of vitamin B12 is chemically identical to the B12 produced by the body, and is therefore optimal for utilization. Quick Melt Fully Active B12 offers help for correcting B12 deficiencies, which can effect up to 15% of the U.S. population. It can also support a wide range of vitamin B12-dependent metabolic functions, including gene regulation and nerve cell communication. Due to vitamin B12’s intricate involvement with the nervous system, Quick Melt Fully Active B12 can help support a healthy memory, mood, and overall well-being.

Doctor's Best Introduces Quick Melt Melatonin 60T

Doctor's Best has introduced Quick Melt Melatonin into its dietary supplement line. This product comes as 60 unique delivery, quick melt dissolving tablets, with each providing 2.5 mg of easily absorbed melatonin in a tasty chocolate mint flavor. This is in addition to the 10 and 120 tablet sizes also offered by Doctor’s Best. Melatonin is a natural substance that is secreted by the pineal gland to regulate sleep in response to light and darkness. The rhythm of melatonin secretion is regulated by the body’s master internal clock, or “biological clock,” a group of nerve cells in the brain’s hypothalamus known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Melatonin type 2 receptors of the SCN receive information from the eyes about the amount of light present in the environment. With darkness, more melatonin is released; 80% of melatonin production occurs at night.
