Are You Going to Have a Heart Attack? (Here’s How to Tell)

I know many people who have had a heart attack.

I’m sure you do, too.

And if you’ve ever lived through a heart attack, it’s an experience you probably don’t want to repeat.

So wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy and cheap test that could tell if your heart’s blood vessels were clogged?

Well, that test exists.

And if you’re worried about your heart, you’ll want to get it right away.

Researchers from Saint Joseph University Beirut and Saint George Hospital in Lebanon discovered a relationship between the amount of dp-unMGP in your blood and whether your blood vessels are blocked.  

So, what is dp-unMGP and how do you test for it?

The simple blood test measures the amount of dephosphorylated uncarboxylated matric Gla protein (dp-unMGP) you have, and that test correlates with clogged arteries.  

The researchers took blood from people and determined how much dp-unMGP was in their blood.

They then ran people through a series of scans to assess their degree of blockage. They were able to show that the more dp-unMGP in someone’s body, the less blockage in arteries.

But dp-unMGP isn’t just some molecule running around in your blood, it is a measurement of how much vitamin K you have in your body.

That is how important vitamin K is to your heart health.  

Vitamin K2 is now known to activate over 17 proteins in our bodies:

  • A protein called osteocalcin–which helps to build bone.
  • A protein called Matrix GLA protein (MGP) which helps keep arteries healthy by keeping calcium from sticking to the walls.
  • A number of protein clotting factors involved in healthy coagulation.
  • A number of protein anti-coagulants (proteins C, S and Z).

Studies on Vitamin K2 are ongoing and have found that taking enough is essential to helping prevent:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

It seems K2 is more important than we could have ever imagined.

Good food sources include: green leafy vegetables, fish, liver, meat, and eggs.

I generally suggest getting 90 mcg of vitamin K a day–along with a balanced diet. If you don’t get enough, then make sure you supplement.

Health and Happiness,
