The secret to avoiding calcium-related osteoporosis and atherosclerosis

While millions of people take calcium and Vitamin D supplements thinking they're helping their bones, the truth is, without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen could prove dangerous. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it's needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue (like the arteries)--leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis, or the dreaded calcium paradox. This is the first book to reveal how universal a Vitamin K2 deficiency is, and the risk (in the form of cancer and diabetes, among other ailments) the absence of Vitamin K2 poses.

Written by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a popular health expert on Canadian television and radio, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox sounds a warning about the popularity of the calcium and Vitamin D craze, while illustrating the enormous health benefits of Vitamin K2 in making the body less susceptible to dental cavities, heart disease, prostate cancer, liver cancer, diabetes, wrinkles, obesity, varicose veins, and other ailments.The book demystifies this obscure supernutrient--a fat soluble vitamin that humans once thrived on, ignored by scientists for almost seventy yearsDetails how the consumption of grass-fed animals Read More chevron_right

   A must read if your supplementing with vitamin D and or Calcium.
I found this book to be very informative and life saving if you are taking D or calcium supplements. The critical information in the book needed a lot more guidance than I was led to believe. The supplements that should be taken together to protect arteries from plaque was explained very well. There was no advisable dosages given. It was clear that the recommended dosages were not enough. What is a good dose for the suggested supplements? For a person with osteoporosis, what would a safe and effective dosage ratio be? I didn't want to put the book down until it was done. Then it ended without suggestions for dosage and ratio? I was very disappointed. It was like paying for a great recipe with all of the ingredients, without the measurement. Most likely, the results would not be good if you guessed the measurements.

   Loaded with good information
As an allopathically trained physician who is being pushed by Big pharma into a more naturopathic mode, I found this book to be very enjoyable. There is a lot of accurate information about nutrition issues. I was interested in the history of vitamins K2 and K2. Eggs from free- range chickens are some of the natural sources that she discusses. The discovery of these locally grown marvels has been a blessing, as I eat eggs most days for breakfast. The prose strikes a balance between scientific writing and spoken English. The health benefits of fatsoluble vitamins are huge, and I will definitely be incorporating this information into my practice and lifestyle.

   Taking K2 for over two year now, still working
I read this book and thought I'd try a supplement. I' ve been taking 5 mg of the Carlson brand of K2 for two years. In the first week of taking it, it helped clean up the plaque on my teeth. For over two years, I' ve had that effect. I tried taking an appropriate amount of the K2 form, but it gave me a lot of hives. I have had no problems since I switched to MK-4. I only need 5 mg of K2, even though the book says I should take 45. I have a fantastic score on my bone density, but I don't have any previous scores to compare it to. At the time I read it, I thought it was fascinating and I still do. I take vitamins to strengthen my bones. Since it works on my teeth, I'm hoping it also works on my bones and arteries.
