SLASH Heart Disease Risk 30% with This Missing Vitamin

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you ask me, heart disease doesn’t get enough attention.

According to the CDC, someone dies every 36 seconds from this disease.

And one of the biggest causes of death is atherosclerosis, the thickening of the walls of your arteries that can lead to high blood pressure and deadly blockages.

Your mainstream doc will tell you the only way to stop this process is by taking a dangerous statin.

But I’m here to tell you that’s NOT true.

Researchers have discovered that a certain “missing” vitamin could SLASH your heart disease risk 30 percent.

Which means you may not have to resort to expensive prescriptions after all.

*****

A recent study published by the American Heart Association has found that vitamin K can protect your heart… and possibly save your life.

After reviewing the health data of over 50,000 participants in the Danish Diet, Cancer, and Health Study, researchers found that the participants who ate foods high in vitamin K had a 30 percent lower risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis,

Like other fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin K is divided into two types: K1 and K2. Vitamin K1 is found in leafy greens and vegetables, while K2 is found in meat and dairy products.

Participants who ate more K1-rich foods had a 21 percent lower risk of landing in the hospital with heart disease.

But vitamin K2 was no slouch either. The participants who ate a diet rich in vitamin K2 had a 14 percent lower risk of hospitalization.

Besides heart disease, studies on vitamin K have found that taking enough Vitamin K is essential to help prevent:

  • osteoporosis,
  • diabetes,
  • dementia,
  • and even cancer.

It seems vitamin K is much more important than we could have ever imagined for living a healthy, disease-free life.

For my patients, I usually suggest getting 90mcg of vitamin K daily from a balanced diet. If you don’t eat a variety of lean proteins and leafy vegetables however, then you may need to supplement. Talk to your doctor to determine what’s right for you. He can order a test to find out if you’re deficient.
