That’s all it takes to REVERSE two conditions that seniors fear most:
- Heart disease; and
- Bone loss
It’s not trendy or “hip,” so it doesn’t get much attention…
It’s not rare, although it’s tough to get from food alone…
And it’s not expensive.
In fact, you can buy it for the coins in your sofa, with supplements costing about a dime a day!
Today, I’ll reveal this “missing link” in bone and heart health so you can begin reaping the benefits!
The “calcium paradox”
The latest research looks at what’s called the “calcium paradox.”
Your bones need calcium, of course. We all learned that back in grade school.
But even when you get calcium in your diet – or via a supplement – it doesn’t always make it there.
It gets “stuck” in your arteries, where it can harden and calcify.
But there’s a nutrient locked inside a “stinky bean” that can change it.
It’s called K2, and it acts like a traffic cop in your body…
K2 chases calcium OUT of your arteries, AWAY from soft tissue, and INTO BONE where it BELONGS.
Two critical, life-changing and even life-savingforms of protection… from a single nutrient that most people have never been told to take…
Because K2 gets almost NO ATTENTION from the mainstream!
When they mention vitamin K at all they treat all forms the same. K1 and K2 are just lumped into the general “vitamin K” category—but they’re completely different:
- K1:Up to 90 percent of all our vitamin K is K1. It’s found in common leafy greens as well as broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
But you only absorb about 10 percent of what you eat… making it practically worthless.
- K2: This is the far more important form of K. It’s more easily absorbed, and more easily put to work in that “traffic cop” role.
The problem is getting it…
You’ll find a little here and there. It’s in the dark meat of chicken, for example.
But few people get it in high amounts… except the Japanese; they love a fermented “stinky bean” product called natto that is absolutely LOADED with K2.
And indeed, they also have A THIRD the rate of heart disease and HALF the rate of hip fractures despite a diet much LOWER in CALCIUM (about 70 percent are lactose intolerant, so they drink much less milk).
That, my friend, is the calcium paradox in action: They get LESS of it, but use it MORE EFFECTIVELY thanks to K2.
You don’t have to eat natto to get it. It’s an acquired taste (not to mention smell). There are K2 supplements, including one made from natto called nattokinase.
Just speak to a doc before getting started, as it can interact with the blood thinner warfarin.
