Yet, most women are never told that a vitamin K deficiency can cause weakening of the bones, chronic inflammation plus a host of degenerative diseases.

Learn the secrets to avoiding heart disease and osteoporosis. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue talk about the risks associated with popular nutritional supplements; why vitamin K2 is crucial for optimal health plus many other lifesaving tips – which have been ignored by science for over 70 years!

Cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading cause of death around the world, claims the lives of over 17 million people per year. According to the World Health Organization, “cardiovascular diseases can be prevented” – yet they fail to mention that vitamin K deficiency is connected to CVD.

According to Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, “when we’re lacking K2, we’re at much greater risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancer. And these are three concerns that used to be relatively rare. Over the last 100 years, as we’ve changed the way we produced our food and the way we eat, they have become very common.”

The most misunderstood vitamin on the planet

Vitamin K is often touted as the “blood clotting” vitamin – but this is where the confusion begins. Blood clotting only comes from vitamin K1, technically called phylloquinone, which is easily found in our diet by eating dark, leafy green vegetables. Vitamin K2, technically called menaquinone and largely ignored by conventional medicine, is responsible for moving calcium around in the body.

The significance of vitamin K2 can NOT be overemphasized. If you want stronger bones (which need calcium) and clear, healthy arteries (which do NOT need excess calcium deposits) – then you must avoid vitamin K2 deficiency.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Kate talk about how vitamin K2 is crucial for optimal health – especially if you’re taking calcium or vitamin D supplements. Do NOT miss this lifesaving program.

Health alert: Read carefully if you’re taking vitamin D or calcium supplements

Unfortunately, thanks to modern living conditions, vitamin D deficiency has reached epidemic levels in our society due to inadequate sunlight exposure. Dr. Kate says:

“When you take vitamin D, your body creates more of these vitamin K2-dependent proteins, the proteins that will move the calcium around. They have a lot of potential health benefits. But until the K2 comes in to activate those proteins, those benefits aren’t realized. So, really, if you’re taking vitamin D, you’re creating an increased demand for K2. And vitamin D and K2 work together to strengthen your bones and improve your heart health.”

Are you taking calcium supplements? Watch out because you could be increasing your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Dr. Kate points out:

“… For so long, we’ve been told to take calcium for osteoporosis… and vitamin D, which we know is helpful. But then, more studies are coming out showing that increased calcium intake is causing more heart attacks and strokes. That created a lot of confusion around whether calcium is safe or not. But that’s the wrong question to be asking, because we’ll never properly understand the health benefits of calcium or vitamin D, unless we take into consideration K2. That’s what keeps the calcium in its right place.”

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you’ll learn about the health benefits of vitamin K2; why vitamin K2 is missing in our diet; the best supplements to take plus much more. If you’re a healthcare provider – you’re going to LOVE this program.

    My Doc wanted to put me on Lipitor right away, after LDL came back 136. Did he ask what I ate the night before? No, nothing, just prescribed. Also found out I have “Aortic Calcification”. I eat very well knowledgeably, take supplements, yet do not quite have an understanding how to keep my Calcium in my bones rather than my Aorta causing Atherosclerosis. I take D3, Magnesium and others. May I increase my knowledge of this from anyone out there? I will never take statins period. Thank you.

      Vitamin K2 MK-7 is derived from bacteria most notably natto a japanese fermented soybean dish Vitamin k2 in essence activates a mechanism that moves calcium from the arteries and heart back into the bones and teeth where they belong also prevents vitamin d3 over which is calcification by the same action for some reason its still a big secret vitamin k1 is involved in clotting and is derived from green leafy vegtables there is no known toxcitity of k2 but I believe it takes close to 300 mg daily to activate the proteins to do its job. What blows my mind is walk jnto any pharmacy youll find bottles of 10,000 iu many people use the if one is good then 3 or 4 must be better and with out k2 mk7 to keep calcification in check from high D3 use as i haven’t seen k2 in any major pharmacys these stores aiding and abetting hardening of the arteries and probably have no clue they are? Just to clarify i supplement with Vitamin D3 5000 iu and k2 mk7 400 mg daily also magnesium citrate
