Vitamin Deficiency CAUSING Early DEATH?!
You know that vitamins and minerals are good for you.
But did you know that getting enough of them could be a matter of life and death?
Deficiencies in certain nutrients could increase your risk of infections (including COVID-19), heart problems, joint problems, depression, memory issues, and so much more.
And now, a study shows that being deficient in one particular vitamin can send your risk of an early death through the ROOF.
Clearly, this is one nutrient you don’t want to do without.
Vitamin K keeps has made headlines a lot lately.
Most notably, I told you about a potential link between vitamin K deficiency and the severity of COVID-19.
Now, a study published in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown another major danger associated with low levels of vitamin K… it can increase your risk of early death.
An analysis of almost 4,000 adults 54-76 years old found that people with the lowest levels of vitamin K were 19 percent more likely to die.
Of course, this study was just observational, meaning it didn’t establish cause and effect. But it highlights once again the need for a balanced diet that contains ALL of the nutrients vital for optimal health… vitamin K included.
Vitamin K is critical for keeping your blood vessels healthy. More specifically, it helps prevent your arterial stiffness—which is a hallmark of cardiovascular disease.
When veins and arteries become calcified and lose their elasticity, your blood pressure soars and your heart has to work harder to pump blood throughout your body.
As you might imagine, this can increase the risk of cardiovascular events, strokes, dementia, and ultimately, death.
Deficiencies in K have also been tied to mobility limitations, with seniors with low levels being TWICE as likely to develop a mobility disability.
Other studies have tied this vitamin K to specific mobility issues like slower gait speed and a higher risk of osteoarthritis.
Most people would benefit from more K. To get more vitamin K, be sure to include plenty of spinach, kale, broccoli, and dairy products in your diet.
