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 led to adequate Vitamin K2 intake--while grain-based animal feed helped eradicate Vitamin K2 from our dietsDescribes how doctors are raising recommended doses of calcium and Vitamin D--without prescribing Vitamin K2Details more damning facts about transfats--and how the creation of a synthetic Vitamin K interfered with the body's Vitamin K metabolism
An essential book for anyone interested in bone health, or maintaining their overall health, "Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox" is the guide to taking the right combination of supplements--and adding Vitamin K2 to a daily regimen.

Learn the secret to avoiding osteoporosis and heart disease.
Millions of people take vitamin D and calcium supplements for bone health. New research shows that this actually increases the risk of heart attack and stroke because the added calcium builds up in arteries--the calcium paradox.

How consumption of grass-fed animals traditionally provided us with ample quantities of vitamin K2--while grain-based animal feed contributed to the eradication of vitamin K2 in our modern diet
How K2 is the most important anti-aging nutrient for fighting wrinkles, Alzheimer's, heart disease, osteoporosis and more
The health benefits K2 promotes for straight, cavity-free teeth and strong bones in children
Which delicious "sinful" foods are brimming with heart-healthy K2
Ways you can safely get the most benefit from your calcium and vitamin D supplements
