Millions of people are taking 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, even deadly.

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.”

It’s time to bring attention to 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.
