2016 Lecture: Vitamin K2 and the role it plays in defining the structural integrity
and rate of aging in virtually every tissue in the body.
Vitamin K2, the most recently recognized vitamin in the western world is
now achieving the recognition as an omnipotent nutrient that exerts control and function
in virtually every tissue type in our body, including the digestive tract. Dozens of large
scale studies have clearly illustrated its role in bone health, heart health via calcification,
cancer and diabetes. It acts as an "activator" or carboxylating agent to activate key
vitamin K dependent proteins. Considering that the western population is sub-clinically
deficient in vitamin K2, what impact is this having on our health and our health system.
Additionally, we will discuss new discoveries in the function of vitamin K2 in the body by
going beyond its well-known roles as a carboxylating vitamin in bone health and heart
health. These new discoveries will further illustrate the danger we face in the western
world being a population that is sub-clinically deficient in vitamin K2 and the tremendous
opportunity we have at slowing down age related atrophy.
Brief understanding of the background of vitamin K2, its discovery, how it is
produced, sources in nature and comparison to the more well-known, Vitamin
Understanding the difference between the various forms of vitamin K2 on the
market and the important features that will lead to efficacy or non-response.
Overview of the studies to understand vitamin K2's role in bone health, heart
health, diabetes and cancer.
New discoveries in the function of vitamin K2 - going beyond carboxylation and
into redox reactions.
Understanding why vitamin K2 may be considered one of the most important
