Nutrition / Nutrition / Vitamin K2 / October 15, 2014

You likely know of the many health benefits of taking vitamins C and D as they’re two of the most common vitamins we hear about day to day. But what about vitamin K? Chances are you’ve heard very little about it.

Nutrition / Research / Vitamin K2 / February 20, 2014

A study titled “Vitamin K Deficiency Linked to Knee Osteoarthritis” is adding further strength to the exciting research showing vitamin K does much more than strengthen your bones. The results indicate it also protects against knee osteoarthritis and knee cartilage lesions. How it benefits bone health is well established: it’s been shown to improve bone density and reduce fracture rates – even for people with low bone density. K is a necessary cofactor in carboxylation (meaning ‘chemical reaction’) of several proteins that are involved in bone formation and maintenance. It is well known to improve your cardiovascular health, as it cleans calcium deposits from your arteries and deposits it where it’s needed – in your bones. K not only blocks new arterial calcium buildup but can also reduce existing levels of calcification – by 37 percent. On top of that…

Nutrition / Research / Vitamin K2 / May 8, 2012

“Treatment with vitamin K, especially MK-7, effective enough to reduce bone resorption,” say researchers reporting the results of a landmark study published April 2012 in Calcified Tissue International, a leading journal for research on the structure and function of bone. (1) This one year-long study compared the effects of vitamin K1 to those of vitamin K2 (as MK-7) on a number of markers of bone resorption (breakdown) and formation in 173 postmenopausal women. The women were randomly divided into four groups: A group of 38 women given 800 mg of calcium and 400 IU of vitamin D3 per day (called the CaD group ) A group of 38 women given 800 mg of calcium, 400 IU of vitamin D3, and 100 mcg vitamin K1 per day (the CaDK1 group) A group of 39 women given 800 mg of calcium, 400IU…
