The Life-Saving Vitamin You’re NOT Taking

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

When you buy a multivitamin, what are the first vitamins you look for?

Probably B vitamins for your energy levels and brain… maybe vitamin D for your bones… or vitamin C for your immune system.

But there’s one vitamin you probably never think about.

It’s like the Rodney Dangerfield of vitamins – it gets no respect.

But if you’re serious about preventing diabetes, heart disease, dementia… and even cancer… you need to add it to your daily routine.

Starting today.

The way vitamin K got its name is a very curious thing.

Vitamin K is named for the German word for coagulation – or the clotting of blood.

And that is what vitamin K had long been used for: to help our blood clot.

But, like many things in the science of health, we had no idea how important vitamin K is to our overall health.

Like other fat-soluble vitamins, there is more than one type of vitamin K – vitamin K1 and vitamin K2.

Vitamin K2 is the most healthful for our bodies. Studies out of Japan show the consumption of natto – a naturally fermented soy and a good source of Vitamin K2 – helps reduce rates of many chronic conditions

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) that helps keep arteries healthy by keeping calcium from sticking to the walls.
  • A number of protein clotting factors involved in coagulation (Factors II, VII, IX, X).
  • A number of protein anti-coagulants (proteins C, S and Z).

Studies on vitamin K are ongoing and have found that taking enough Vitamin K is essential to help prevent:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

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

Good food sources of vitamin K include: natto, 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,

Scott Olson

P.S. If you are on anticoagulants (blood thinners) then work with your doctor to add vitamin K to your diet.
