Benfefits of Liquid Vitamin K by Thorne Research
Vitamin K2 exerts a more powerful influence on bone than does vitamin K1.* Vitamin K2 is a series of molecules known as menaquinones, some of which are found naturally in fermented soybeans. The most common and well studied of the menaquinones is MK-4. Thorne's vitamin K2 is MK-4.
Vitamin K2 appears to offer significant benefit for supporting bone health.* Although much of the vitamin K2 research has been conducted on postmenopausal support for bones, because vitamin K2 does not have any estrogenic effects, vitamin K2 also offers bone support for other populations, including anorexics, dialysis patients, individuals with Parkinson's disease, those who have cirrhosis of the liver, individuals who have had a bone marrow transplant, those immobilized after a stroke, and individuals on chronic steroid therapy.

Thank you for your question! The starting material for this product is geranyl and the vitamin K2 is made from that. This product doesn't contain natto bean. Thorne Research does all the supplement creation in their own lab, which is a controlled environment and they are not relying on other companies to produce their product.
I hope this answers your question.
