.. And what you need to know about Vitamin K2, Vitamin D & Calcium.
Finally available in Australia we now have the MK7 form of vitamin K2!
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin most well known for the important role it plays in blood clotting. However, many do not realize that there are different kinds of vitamin K, and they are completely different.
The health benefits of vitamin K2 go far beyond blood clotting, which is done by vitamin K1, and vitamin K2 also works synergistically with a number of other nutrients, including calcium and vitamin D.
The K2 is helping to direct the calcium in the body to go where you want it… into bone and not into your arteries and soft tissues. This has implications for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and calcification in conditions such as heel spurs and kidney stones.
You can talk to your doctor about getting a ‘coronary artery calcium score’ to test the calcification levels in your arteries.
If you have been taking Vitamin D watch the video below to find out why you should be taking it with K2 (MK7 form).
“Its other main role is to activate proteins that control cell growth. That means K2 has a very important role to play in cancer protection,” Dr. Rheaume-Bleue says.
Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a naturopathic physician with a keen interest in nutrition, has authored what I believe is one of the most comprehensive books on this important topic, titled: Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life
