Scientific Update on the Omnipresent Vitamin, K2-7
Vitamin K2, the most recently recognized vitamin in the western world is now achieving the recognition as an omnipotent nutrient that exerts control and function in virtually every tissue type in our body. Dozens of large scale studies have clearly illustrated its role in bone health, heart health via calcification, cancer and diabetes. It acts as an “activator” or carboxylating agent to activate key vitamin K dependent proteins. Recent studies have demonstrated that the importance of vitamin K2 goes far deeper than its role as carboxylator. We will discuss the new discoveries on the function of vitamin K2, going beyond its well-known roles and deeper into the cell where it effects the cellular engine itself. These new discoveries will further illustrate the danger we face in the western world, being a population that is sub-clinically deficient in vitamin K2.
