Doctors Stunned to Discover Vitamin K-2 Has This Hidden Power

Vitamin K-2 deficiencies are arguably one of the leading nutrient deficiencies in the developed world. All because our diet has shifted away from “real food” in favor of more processed foods.This is even true for people who eat organic and are self-professed clean eaters.Vitamin K-2 is only present in foods that don’t find a place in Western diets. Foods like brie, gouda, natto, pasture-raised egg yolks, goose liver etc.And the food-based sources people do incorporate into their diet are typically on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to total amounts of K-2.All that to be said, supplementing with vitamin K-2 is a great idea.But here’s where I’m going to shock you.Well, shock may be an overstatement.Pleasantly surprise...

Vitamin K-2 without This Is Useless

If you’ve ever purchased bone-supporting and heart-protecting vitamin K-2 then you know it’s one of the missing ingredients for exceptional health. But once you get vitamin K-2 and start taking it are you done? Are your bones and heart completely safe? Good question. To answer that bluntly, no. I do have a few recommendations for getting the most out of your vitamin K-2 so you safely achieve your health goals. One of the first things you should do is check to see if any supplements you take contain calcium. If they do, be sure to check the dose. If there’s more than 150 mg of calcium in the supplement I recommend not taking it any longer. This is especially true...

For Anyone Who Is Taking This Particular Vitamin...

A number of years ago, I stumbled upon a pretty significant health problem. It sure does seem like I stumble a lot, maybe I should watch where I’m going.  ;)  Here’s what happened.  Patients who were taking calcium supplements and following most protocols needed to help strengthen bones were experiencing a major problem. Their bones weren’t getting any stronger. I’ve written about this before, but the realization calcium supplements and other prescribed treatment methods didn’t help people grow stronger bones sent me on a quest to find out why. Long story short, I discovered the reason people’s bones didn’t maintain their strength was because they didn’t get enough vitamin K-2 in their diet. Vitamin K-2 is a dietary nutrient most Americans...

This Common Supplement Can Actually Be Harmful

  Tell me if you agree with this statement...The point of medicine is to make people better, right?People listen to doctors because they want to get better; and doctors (and researchers) go to school for years and years so they can help improve people's health.At least, that's what's supposed to happen.Sadly, I've begun to realize as much as we want to help people, sometimes we end up hurting them. And it's hardly ever on purpose. We just end up thinking because prevailing medical wisdom says "X" is supposed to work, then "X" is the way we go.Such is the case with calcium supplementation. As far as the medical community at large is concerned, calcium supplementation absolutely helps strengthen bones. However, that's not...

Vitamin D and K2: The Dream Team

It’s pretty obvious that vitamin D is important. You’ve probably been hearing about the importance of getting enough vitamin D since you were a child. However, did you know that vitamin D should always be combined with K2? If you are taking an oral vitamin D supplement, make sure you’re getting enough K2 as well! Why? Good news! The combination of vitamin D and K2 can actually slow down calcium build up in your arteries—-more so than taking vitamin D alone. Vitamin D helps with bone development and calcium absorption. However, the K2 is what sends that calcium to your skeleton versus depositing it into arteries and other unwanted locations. Vitamin D Alone Isn’t Good Are you getting plenty of calcium...
