Up™ is a fat soluble vitamin which is not stored in
the human body and as a result it must be consumed regularly.
Most people get just enough K from their diets to maintain
adequate blood clotting, but NOT enough to offer protection
against the following health problems and the list is
growing: Prostate cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer and
leukemia, arterial calcification, cardiovascular disease,
varicose veins and osteoporosis.*
The benefits of K2
have been well documented through years of research. The
Rotterdam Study of 7983 men & women who were 55 years
of age or older was the first to prove that a daily intake
of vitamin K2 of more than 32 mcg, reduces the
risk of both arterial calcification and cardiovascular death
by 50%, without any side effects. In 2008, a German research
group discovered that vitamin K2 provides substantial
protection against prostate cancer, which is one of the
most common types of cancer among men in the United States.
According to Dr. Vermeer, men taking the highest amounts
of K2 had about 50 percent less prostate cancer.
In a subsequent study called the Prospect Study, 16,000
people were followed for 10 years. Researchers found that
each additional 10 mcg of K2 in the diet resulted
in 9 percent fewer cardiac events. There is also research
emerging that vitamin K can help protect against brain disease.
However, it is too early to say exactly what types of damage
it prevents, and how, but it is an area of intense interest
to vitamin K scientists right now. *
If you are taking Coumadin
(Warfarin) please consult a physician or healthcare professional
before taking Vitamin K2 Up™ . Misunderstanding
about recommendations for vitamin K intake for people on
anticoagulant therapy has resulted in many people avoiding
all sources of vitamin K (instead of taking in a consistent
but adequate amount of vitamin K as recommended by the drug
One result, for example, is
the association seen between anticoagulant use and increased
risk of osteoporosis, cardiac and renal calcification. Initially
it was thought to be due to the drug itself, but it turned
out to be related to the far too common inappropriate excessive
restriction of vitamin K.*
