Turning To Stone
As we age, our normally pliable tissues can become hardened, which contributes to degenerative disorders like vascular calcification. Vitamin K blocks the calcification of heart valves, arterial linings, and other soft tissues, while keeping calcium within bone to protect against osteoporosis. New data reveals how quickly our vascular system calcifies when vitamin K is neutralized. Even more intriguing is a study showing how vitamin K supplementation may help reverse arterial calcification.
