“Vitamin K2 is a partner nutrient that works with vitamin D and has been overlooked. It will take calcium and guide it around the body. So it will activate certain proteins that help to guide calcium into bones and teeth where we want the calcium to be. And on the other side it also will help prevent the deposition and even remove the deposits of calcium where we do not want calcium to be, in places like the arteries and other soft tissues where calcium can build up and be harmful.”
“In recent years at least three big studies have shown that people who take calcium supplements have a much greater incidence of heart attacks and strokes than those who do not.”
“Vitamin K2 dependent proteins have a very important effect on sperm production and male fertility. So that certainly supports the traditional practices of making sure men had these vitamin K2 rich foods in their diets.”
“Women with more facial wrinkles tend to have lower bone density. Of course both of these things relate to calcium.”
“We develop our lifetime maximum bone density essentially by age 20.”
“K2 is an important factor in preventing inappropriate calcium buildup throughout the body.”
