The TRUTH About Meat and Your Heart (SHOCKING)
If you want to avoid heart disease, you’ve been told to avoid meat and eggs.
Well, I’m here to tell you to take that advice… and toss it out the window!
These foods been proven time and again to provide health benefits like boosting energy and brain health.
And now, a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association shows that they’re great for your heart, too.
This study included 50,000 people who were followed for 23 years. The researchers wanted to see whether people who ate more foods with vitamin K had a lower risk of heart disease caused by atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque in your arteries that causes them to become stiff and narrow. This is a key factor that leads to strokes, heart attacks, poor blood flow, and blood clots.
This study found that people with higher intakes of vitamin K1 had a 21 percent lower risk of being hospitalized for atherosclerosis-related heart disease.
And those who ate the largest amounts of foods with vitamin K2 had a 14 percent lower risk of heart disease.
And, in fact, vitamin K intake lowered the risk of peripheral artery disease by 34 percent.
This protective effect is likely because vitamin K protects against calcium buildup in your arteries.
But see, people aren’t getting nearly enough vitamin K for a couple reasons.
One, the dietary recommendations for this vitamin are far too low. They’re based on the amount of vitamin K your body needs for your blood to coagulate.
But studies continue to show that higher amounts are necessary to take advantage of its heart-related benefits.
The second reason intake is so low is because every major health organization is telling you to stay away from the very foods that would provide you with plenty of this heart-healthy vitamin!
Because while vitamin K1 is found in leafy greens, vitamin K2 is found in high-fat dairy products, egg yolks, and meat (especially organ meat).
Yes, these are the very foods you’ve been told to eat less of your entire life.
Well, I’ve personally ignored that advice, and my heart is all the healthier for it.
And as this study showed, one key reason why is because those “forbidden” foods are providing me with a healthy dose of vitamin K.
