A simple vitamin can strengthern your bones


Natural vitamin K2 in the form of natural MK-7 builds bone strength, helps prevent osteoporosis, and protects the heart. Noted vitamin K expert Dr. Cees Vermeer led the European study which found that natural vitamin K2 as MK-7 (MenaQ 7 ®) significantly increases the strength of both the spine and the hip in postmenopausal women. The study also verified earlier findings about the cardiovascular benefits of this nutrient. Specifically, the use of MK-7 results in improvements in vascular elasticity and a decrease in age-related stiffening of the arteries. The dose used in this trial was 180 mcg of natural vitamin K2 as MK-7, which is the level commonly found in Japanese diets. The trial lasted for 3 years, with relevant improvement in the hip neck area being apparent after 2-3 years. This explains why previous, shorter studies have not typically shown MK-7 benefits on bone and cardiovascular health. This is surely welcome news for all of us who are looking to strengthen our bones and protect our hearts naturally. I am pleased with this scientific validation of what I have been reporting for years — MK-7 offers great benefits for both the skeleton and cardiovascular systems.

Vitamin K is essential for the proper formation and full activation of the Gla proteins. The Gla protein osteocalcin, when fully carboxylated by vitamin K, allows for the binding of calcium to the bone matrix. Thanks

Vitamins deficiency is a common problem in many people today. Due to bad ecology, diseases, undernourishment and genetically modified products, a human body lacks many nutritious elements, which influence its normal functioning.

Vitamin D takes a special place in the range of other vitamins and minerals and is commonly referred to as a sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D benefits can hardly be overestimated, because it is essential not only for bone health, but also for heart health and proper blood circulation, diabetes prevention and blood sugar control, etc.
