The Long Forgotten Vitamin K2 (Ep. 10)
Have you ever heard of Vitamin K2? It may be one of the most important vitamins for your development of a healthy body. Unfortunately in the recent past, fat has been demonized. That means everything that comes along with the fat has been rid of in our society. One of those things is Vitamin K2, a fat soluble vitamin. It was first discovered as “Activator X” by Dr. Weston A. Price in the early 20th century. It helps build and maintain proper bone, teeth and heart structure. Without Vitamin K2, you are not able to deposit calcium where it needs to go. Your bones start to deteriorate, and your body will deposit that calcium elsewhere, like your arteries. It is essential that you get proper amounts of this vitamin. You can mainly get it from grass-fed animal products. Grass-fed butter is my favorite, but you can find it in things like beef and cheese. Please take note that the animal had to have been grass-fed for it to have Vitamin K2. Otherwise, you can gain the necessary amounts through supplementation. If you choose this route, make sure to at least get 100 micrograms per day of this vitamin. You want to take the MK-7 (menaquinone-7) form of this vitamin.
