Simple Nutrient Is a Healthy Aging SUPERSTAR
If you’ve ever walked into a supplement store, you know how overwhelming it can be.
There are a dozen products for EVERY possible health complaint these days.
So, which solutions are WORTH investing in?
Well, typically, nature knows best. And complicated formulas aren’t necessary.
In fact, one simple nutrient, in particular, is getting some well-deserved attention. And that’s because a growing stack of studies confirms this anti-aging vitamin BLOCKS two of the most troubling complications of growing older.
Vitamin K performs several VITAL functions that make it a healthy aging SUPERSTAR.
The nutrient helps…
- support healthy blood clotting
- maintain strong bones
- treat and prevent heart disease
But the anti-aging benefits don’t end there. Recent evidence also finds it has the potential to stop the growth of cancer cells and decrease the risk of prostate and lung cancer.
While heart and bone health seem unrelated, they’re intimately connected through the role of vitamin K.
You see, one of vitamin K’s jobs is to tell calcium where to go. More specifically, it directs the mineral to stay OUT of your arteries and move INTO your bones.
And that’s a WIN-WIN situation if there ever was one.
LESS calcium in your arteries means reduced arterial stiffness, a lower risk of coronary artery disease, and increased survival rates in heart patients.
MORE calcium in your bones means stronger bones and a reduced risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis.
In one study, taking 180 mcg of vitamin K2 daily reduced bone loss in postmenopausal women. Other research reveals that folks who don’t get enough anti-aging vitamin K have an increased risk of hip fracture.
The BEST way to raise your vitamin K2 level is by eating more of some of my favorite foods: full-fat dairy, pork, poultry, and fermented foods.
If you need extra support, you can also take a vitamin K2 supplement.
But make sure you talk to your doctor FIRST, especially if you’re on a blood thinner like warfarin. Because vitamin K boosts blood clotting, it can reverse the effect of these drugs.

Scientists have been searching in vain for a CURE for Alzheimer’s disease. While some drugs may help lessen symptoms in the short term, scientists aren’t even close to a cure.

Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.

Like the lung cancer I wrote just a few days ago, breast cancer’s survival rate is highest when it’s caught EARLY. But this doesn’t just mean getting cancer screenings.
