Nutrient Duo DROPS Blood Pressure
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you’re suffering from high blood pressure, you already know how difficult it is to manage.
You have to constantly watch what you eat and maintain an exercise regime fit for pro athletes.
And it seems like every time you turn around, your doctor is handing you another pill to get your numbers in check.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Because some Dutch researchers just discovered the secret to healthy blood pressure is two simple vitamins.
And the best part — they’re easy to get your hands on.
I’m talking about vitamins D and K.
And while they’ve been touted for their incredible heart- and bone-boosting properties in the past, this latest paper published in the journal Hypertension focuses on how they affect blood pressure.
For the study, researchers looked at the medical records of folks aged 55–65 enrolled in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam. Their focus was on vitamin D and vitamin K blood levels as well as blood pressure readings.
And what they found was incredible…
Participants who had low vitamin D and vitamin K levels were 62 percent more likely to suffer from high blood pressure than those in normal or high range.
Even worse, low vitamin D and vitamin K levels caused significant increases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
This study establishes a clear link between these two powerful vitamins and blood pressure outcomes.
Experts report it’s best to take vitamin D in its D3 form, which is the type found naturally in your body. And vitamin K in its K2 form, which is difficult to get through your diet.
Additionally, vitamins D3 and K2 help your heart and bones stay healthy.
You see, vitamin K2 helps direct calcium into your bones and away from your arteries, and vitamin D3 helps your bones absorb it.
This means taking this powerful nutrient combo can help keep your blood pressure down, your arteries clear and your bones strong!
You can find vitamin D3K2 supplements at natural health stores. Be sure to opt for an oil-based formula so your body can absorb it best.

It always puzzles me how anyone thinks we can spray toxic chemicals on our crops and NOT have them affect our health!

And research makes it clear that these creepy chemicals...
I think you’ll agree that aging should come with some perks. And chief among them is FINALLY having the time to relax and enjoy the retirement you earned.

How does that old saying go? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I’ve had patients make some pretty strange claims about their arthritis. Many folks swear they can “feel a storm coming” in their joints. And I’ve heard this one so often (and had them be spot-on about that storm) that I believe it’s true. Other patients claim their joint pain gets worse when eating tomatoes. And...
If you’re “of a certain age,” I bet you remember that iconic old slogan from the late 70s, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” It always springs to mind when I see a sharp person’s memory start to fade away. They soon become unable to make decisions for themselves. Eventually, they even have...

If you have diabetes, it’s almost certain that your conventional medical doctor put you on a blood sugar-lowering drug. And there’s ALSO a strong possibility that the drug makes you feel terrible. Common side effects include gas, bloating, upset stomach, kidney issues, and fatigue. Even worse, over time, these drugs become less effective. So even...
Okay, I’ll admit it. There have been times I’ve found it tough to maintain an optimistic outlook these last few years. And I’m not alone. Studies show that unhappiness and loneliness are on the rise.

It’s the nuttiest time of year. And I’m not just talking about the decorating, shopping, and holiday chaos… I’m literally talking about NUTS. Sure, we eat these tasty treats all year round.
