Reduce the Risk of Calcification Diseases with Vitamin K

Vitamin K & K2 in particular, play critical roles in preventing osteoporosis, cardiovascular blockages and pathological calcification by regulating the healthy function of calcium.

Vitamin K’s job is to put calcium in the right places and keep it from being deposited in the wrong places. Consequently it has a direct impact on diseases including obesity, blood pressure disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and malfunctioning of cell signaling. The right places are bones and blood, and the wrong places include calcification of the vessels, bone spurs and calcification of soft tissues.

Antibiotics interfere with the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria and as a result, impair vitamin K2 production. Warfarin (or Coumadin) also interferes with the metabolism and function of vitamin K2 by inhibiting critical enzymes that are involved with the production of coagulation factors. Without these coagulation factors, excessive bleeding can occur.

Vitamin K Supplementation Retards Postmenopausal Bone Loss
In a study of 188 postmenopausal women between 50 and 60 years taking Vitamin K2 for 3 years it was concluded lifelong supplementation could postpone fractures by up to 10 years. In those taking both vitamins D & K they found a significant increase in bone mineral content and density.

In 1984 it was found that patients with osteoporotic fractures had circulating vitamin K levels, which were over 70% lower than those in the control group. If you have a high osteoporotic risk it is recommended to take Vitamin K and D3 daily.

Other Benefits of Vitamin K & K2
• The National Research Institute in Italy has shown that people with low vitamin K levels were almost twice as likely to develop mobility-related disabilities including arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.

• The second highest concentration of vitamin K in the body is in the pancreas. This means that vitamin K plays a major role in blood sugar and insulin regulation and consequently the possibilities of diabetes.

• Research has indicated that vitamin K has antioxidant activity comparable to vitamin E and CoQ10.

• About 25% of the population has a genetic predisposition for the development of Alzheimer's disease - people who carry this gene have been found to have low levels of vitamin K.

• Researchers have recently discovered that vitamin K2 plays a significant role in prevention of liver cancer caused by viral cirrhosis.

Note - Patients taking anticoagulants should not take high dose vitamin K supplements. It is perfectly safe to take up to three of our capsules daily but for most people 1 daily suffices.
