Vitamin K2 is More Important than Calcium for Preventing Osteoporotic Fracture

Bone Density Examples

In human studies, 25 years of research has linked osteoporotic fracture with vitamin K insufficiency. A study published in 1984 found that patients who suffered fractures caused by osteoporosis had vitamin K levels 70% lower than age-matched controls. This association has been repeatedly confirmed. One recent trial involving almost 900 men and women found those … Read more

Keep Calcium Out of Your Arteries!

Calcium Clogged Pipes

From assisting the development of bone, to preventing arterial calcification, to fighting off cancer and inflammation, vitamin K is the new hot nutrient and for good reason. One of the vitamin K-dependent proteins, matrix Gla-protein (MGP) is the strongest inhibitor of tissue calcification presently known. MGP is produced by small muscle cells in our blood … Read more

The Microcirculatory System

The Micro Cirulatory System

Medical researchers now know that poor microcirculation is one of the single biggest contributing factors to the health problems we commonly associate with the macrocirculatory system. In other words, a heart attack is most likely the long-term result of a damaged microcirculatory system. For example, we’ve all heard of blockages in the coronary artery, and … Read more

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)

DHEA is secreted by the adrenal glands, and also produced in the gonads (testes and ovaries), and brain. It is sometimes called the “mother of all hormones” because it is the building block from which estrogen and testosterone are produced, and is vital to health. Thousands of scientific articles have been published on DHEA during … Read more

L-Citrulline and L-Arginine Increases Nitric Oxide Production for Cardiovascular and Immune Boosting Benefits

Healthy Cardio

The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels uses nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax. This results in a relaxing of the blood vessels, and increased blood flow. Citrulline’s beneficial effects on nitric oxide were demonstrated in a group of male professional cyclists who took 6 grams of oral citrulline before a … Read more

Natto for Blood Flow

Blood Flow

Fibrinogen (a blood clotting protein) levels rise as we get older. And high levels of fibrinogen usually lead to increased platelet aggregation, blood clots, and eventually heart attack or stroke. High fibrinogen levels are considered a more dangerous risk factor for heart attack and stroke than high cholesterol. A study of 2,116 men found that … Read more

Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3

A balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids is essential to promoting and maintaining health. According to Artemis Simpoulos, M.D., President of the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health in Washington D.C. and co-author of The Omega Plan (Harper Collins, 1998), “The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the typical Western diet is … Read more
