Vitamin K2 activates the proteins that vitamins A and D “tell” the cells to make, thus greatly increasing their effectiveness. This has huge implications for calcium metabolism, removing it from the body where it is the “hard” in hardening of the arteries as well as the culprit in spurs, and moving it to the bones and teeth, thus preventing dental decay and osteoporosis (these three are biochemically linked: cardiovascular health, bone health and dental health). Dietary intake of vitamin directly correlates with heart disease.
Vitamin K sources: grass-fed butter,
- Green leafy vegetables, such as kale, spinach, turnip greens, collards, Swiss chard, mustard greens, parsley, romaine, and green leaf lettuce.
- Vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
