Vitamin K: This Could Be Even BIGGER Than the Vitamin D Discovery…

Story at-a-glance -

  • Vitamin K may very well be "the next vitamin D" as research continues to show the nutrient's growing number of benefits. However, most are too deficient in vitamin K to reap its benefits.
  • Vitamin K comes in two forms: vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Among the many types of vitamin K2, MK-7 is a newer agent with more practical applications because it stays in your body longer.
  • In 2008, a German research group discovered that vitamin K2 provides substantial protection from prostate cancer, which is one of the leading causes of cancer among men in the United States. Preliminary findings also suggest that vitamin K can help protect you from brain disease.
  • Vitamin K is also seen to contribute to bone health.
  • In order to raise your vitamin K1 levels, you should eat more green leafy vegetables, while eating 15 grams of natto a day can raise your vitamin K2 levels.
  • It is also important to balance your vitamin D and calcium levels when taking vitamin K, as these three nutrients work together.
