Could your cardiovascular health or your “vascular age” be a more accurate indicator of your health and longevity? Some cardiovascular experts today believe so.
Your arteries need to remain elastic and flexible in order to effectively transport blood and nutrients to all your cells and tissues. Researchers now realize much of that depends on your body’s balance of vitamins K2, D, and calcium.
You want calcium to go to your bones and teeth, and not your arteries and organs. A protein called MGP (matrix Gla protein) is key for preventing the unwanted buildup of calcium in your arteries and requires vitamin K2 to function. Researchers have discovered that healthy arterial tissues contain up to 100 times more vitamin K2 than calcified arteries.*
Restoring blood levels of vitamin K2 can potentially help reverse the buildup of calcium caused by a vitamin K2 deficiency.* Considering that an estimated 97 percent of the Western hemisphere may be deficient in vitamin K2, this is a nutrient you don’t want to ignore.
