Benefits of Vitamin K2 MK-4 and Vitamin D

The enormous benefits of Vitamin K2 MK-4 are not well known. The proper amount of K2 MK-4 works in harmony with vitamin-D causing the body to put calcium where it is needed and to remove it from where it is not needed.  The deficiency in the American diet of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and including K contributes to several health problems — including osteoporosis, obesity, heart-attacks, and cancer, strokes, and diabetes, and stunted growth, women’s inability to conceive and to have children as healthy as they could be, and the list goes on.

It is fascinating to me how the micronutrients available in these vitamins can have such a far reaching effect on our health.  Then to know that they are naturally occurring and were common in the diet of our ancestors.  Our modern processed foods have taken much of them out.  And this appears correlated with why Americans spend more on medical expenses per-capita than any other country and yet have poorer health than many others.

I recently read an article in WISE TRADITIONS IN FOOD, FARMING, AND THE HEALING ARTS, a publication of The Weston A.

Avoid the flu and the flu shot

Vitamin D sun The amazing benefits of Vitamin D.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Most Americans are deficient in vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) with consequences more serious than most of us have thought.  Dr. John J. Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council discovered that his patients in the hospital did not get influenza, while all the wards around those of his patients, were “involved in fighting the influenza epidemic.”  He noted that “All of the patients on my ward had been taking 2,000 units of vitamin D every day”.  Now, the recommended dosage is higher; for adults it is 5,000 IU/day and 1,000 IU per day for each 25 pounds of body weight for children.
