Vitamin K2’s role in Women’s health

Supporting the prevention or reversal of osteoporosis

“A woman’s risk of osteoporosis is equal to her combined risk of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer. Half of all women over 50 will break a bone because of osteoporosis.”
From: https://www.inspire.com/groups/national-osteoporosis-foundation/topics/postmenopausal-women-with-osteoporosis/

Loss of Estrogen:
Bone structure is affected by the loss of estrogen.  The lack of estrogen seems to cause an increase in the life span of osteoclasts, the cells that transport calcium out of bone (bone is living matter with calcium being constantly transferred to and from it.) Vitamin K2 counteracts this consequences of estrogen loss. http://courses.washington.edu/bonephys/esteffects.html

Risk:
3 out of 5 women are at risk of having osteoporosis. Heredity, ethnicity, size (the smaller, thinner person is at greater risk), and of course nutrition are major factors. The first three are difficult to impossible to affect, but the fourth is totally up to the individual. Healthy food and/or the three supplements, calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 are needed for bone building to continue in the post menopausal years.

Supporting the prevention or reversal of arterial calcification, atherosclerosis

Calcium and vitamin D3:
Many women are now taking calcium with vitamin D3. Research shows the calcium is not going to their bones at the rates expected, but instead is depositing in their arteries, leading to a condition called calcification. Vitamin K2 activates the proteins which transport Calcium to where it is needed.

Vitamin K2 sources

ProNordic K2:
This product is the most pure, all bio-active product on the market today. This non-soy product is free of solvents, GMO’s, inactive forms of the vitamin, bi-products and gluten.

Food sources of vitamin K2:
Unfortunately this vitamin is not readily available in the foods most of us eat and because it does not stay in the body very long, it needs to be eaten daily. The best sources are grass fed meat, dairy and eggs. These are hard to find and expensive. Hard cheeses are good, but they need to be eaten daily to always have active vitamin K2 in the body.

Other health conditions which may benefit from Vitamin K2 include:

  • General aging
  • Heart disease (calcification)
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Wrinkles
  • Varicose veins
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Brain and neurologic health
  • Cancer, lung and prostate
  • Kidney
  • Dental health

Vitamin K2 research is ongoing.

Men also need vitamin K2. The incidence of osteoporosis is not quite as high for men, but calcification is a frequent concern. Men also are concerned about many of the conditions listed above. Many of those who purchase through our subscription plans chose the double dose option and share the second bottle with their spouse or partner.
