Do you know what vitamin everyone needs?
Recently I published two videos on an important vitamin that too few people know about. The first video has been quite popular on Youtube, so I made another one more recently as a Q&A. Those videos are both below, along with detailed notes under each as far as what they cover, and I hope you'll find them helpful!
“For the prevention of everything from wrinkles to cancer, Vitamin K2 is the missing nutrient for women's health. Most women don't need a calcium supplement, but Vitamin K2 will channel dietary calcium to the right places. And everyone is taking Vitamin D, but without K2 we're not getting all the benefits of Vitamin D, and even risking harm from it.”
As Weston A. Price taught us, certain nutrients have *especially* far-reaching benefits for our health. Whether it's our dental health, preventing cancer, kidney stones or heart disease, protecting our brain or our bones — the vitamin I'm talking about today is so important, and because most everyone is deficient, there's almost no one who doesn't need it! Especially if you are taking vitamin D, you really should be taking vitamin K as well, since it is considered the “calcium police”. Read my post about this here: What you MUST know if you're taking vitamin D or calcium!
Here are the videos on vitamin K2…
#1: Which Vitamin K2 should you take, MK4 or MK7?
Also: the vital importance of K2 for heart health, preventing fractures and osteoporosis, reducing diabetes risk, for prostate health, and why NO ONE should be taking calcium supplements:
Questions and topics covered in this video interview with Kiran Krishnan:
Learn about vitamin K2-7 benefits:
- Reduces risk of cardiac death by 50%.
- Decreases incidence of atherosclerosis, kidney stones, gallstones.
- Increases bone health and decreases osteoporosis risk.
- Reduces prostate cancer by 35%.
- Dramatically reduce your risk for type II diabetes.
- Reduces incidence of Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s.
- Reduces fracture risk by 80%.
- How many K2-7 to take if you’ve had blood sugar, cardiac issues, etc. (Do you need to take extra?)
- Can it help someone who already has osteoporosis?
- Why NO ONE should take calcium.
- Why vitamin K (or K1) is important to take with K2.
#2: Who needs to take Vitamin K2? Q&A with microbiologist Kiran Krishnan:
Questions covered in this video interview:
- Can we get too much K2?
- How to know if you’re actually deficient in K2 so we aren't taking it unnecessarily? What happens to any extra k2-7 that we don't use?
- Where there is K2 in our diets and why there are such widespread K2 deficiencies.
- We know K2 plays a role in dental health. It also helps prevent osteoporosis, kidney or gall stones and heart disease because it tells the calcium to go to the right places in the body, could it also help/prevent bone spurs, Parkinsons or Alzheimers?
- (Note that in the video Kiran wonders out loud if K2 could help dental tartar and he didn't think so, however I was reminded later after the interview that a good friend of mine was advised by Natasha Campbell-McBride to take K2 for the tartar on her teeth — once she did this it finally disappeared. Yes this is anecdotal, but I wanted to share anyway.)
- How K2 is significant for dental health (as we learned from Weston A. Price).
- Can vitamin K2 increase blood pressure? (Answer: no)
- We know that if you’re taking vitamin D, it’s very important to take K2 (same with calcium, but the other video goes into why no one should be taking calcium supplements-see link below), but is it also true the other way around, that if you take K2 you need to be sure you’re not deficient in vitamin D?
- What co-factors are in this K2 supplement?

- When you look at other areas of the world who consume foods high in vitamin K2, notice they have few signs of aging such as wrinkles or decreased bone density compared to other countries. Yes taking K2 is important to prevent wrinkles, but I also use this topical anti-aging cream. Instead of retinol, the “darling” of the conventional skincare industry for anti-aging, these products have an alternative to retinol that works AND it's much safer without the health risks.
