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.

Live well,
