Vitamins K2 and D3 Critical for Healthy Arteries

Volume 7    |    Issue 59

If you're looking for the best anti-aging tip you can find, then this is probably it: Your age is best determined by the health of your arteries and veins, so make sure they're soft, supple, flexible, and in overall tip-top shape. But how do you do that?

I've given you a few recommendations in recent weeks. Most of these were focused on peripheral vascular disease. But these same treatments will work to keep your vascular system healthy and youthful. These included nitric oxide and nattokinase. But there are two more nutrients that are absolutely vital for keeping your vascular system in great shape.

As you may know, one of the biggest causes of arterial stiffness is calcification. Just as the name implies, calcium is at the root of calcification. And there's one nutrient your body must have in ample amounts to avoid calcification. That nutrient is vitamin K2.

K2 is particularly active in your bones and soft tissues. It takes calcium out of the arteries and other soft tissues and escorts it into the bones where it belongs. If you don't have enough vitamin K2, calcium builds up in your arteries and causes them to harden. In fact, a group of Dutch researchers discovered very clear links between the amount of vitamin K you take in, arterial calcification, and cardiovascular death.

But there's something you need to take with K2 to really keep your arteries health. That's vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is so vital for vascular health that one study found a low blood level of vitamin D can raise your risk of peripheral vascular disease by a whopping 64%. Another study out of Emory University in Atlanta found that "a lack of vitamin D, even in generally healthy people, is linked with stiffer arteries and an inability of blood vessels to relax." These researchers went on to say something absolutely incredible: "We found that people with vitamin D deficiency had vascular dysfunction comparable to those with diabetes or hypertension."

So if you're looking to keep your arteries and your veins soft and supple, you have to make sure you're getting ample amounts of both of these vitamins. Fortunately, this is easy to do with Advanced Bionutritionals new Vitamin K2+D3 supplement.
