Inspired by passionate people who share a desire to explore new developments in the fields of health and science, the International Health and Science Foundation (ISHF) was founded in 2009. A scientific community independent of business commitments, our activities are based on four main pillars – Innovation, Knowledge, Responsibility, and Cooperation – and are intended to foster a healthy point of view that benefits society. The Foundation’s international character allows us to share experiences with other countries, resulting in innovative designs that allows for the implementation of common, useful social and economic goals.

Vitamin K2 is a newly discovered essential vitamin that is building a significant body of clinical evidence demonstrating its crucial significance in the fight against the most common and devastating diseases of our time: osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. These conditions contribute to difficulties in the functioning of society and are the most common cause of death worldwide, and both can be linked to a deficiency in vitamin K2. Part of the K family of vitamins, vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps the body efficiently utilize calcium. By activating different K-dependent proteins, it directs calcium toward bones and away from the arteries.
