Vitamin K2: The Missing Nutrient
Tue, October 18, 2016, 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM BST
Many people are not aware of the full health benefits of vitamin K2 or the full health implications of the calcium paradox. The K vitamins have been significantly underrated and misunderstood up until very recently, in both the scientific community and the general public. It has been commonly believed that the benefits of vitamin K are limited to its role in blood clotting. Another popular misconception is that vitamins K1 and K2 are simply different forms of the same vitamin – with the same physiological functions.
However, recent scientific evidence has confirmed that vitamin K2’s role in the body extends far beyond blood clotting to include protecting us from heart disease & heart attacks, ensuring healthy skin, forming strong bones, promoting brain function, supporting growth and development and helping to prevent cancer – to name a few. In fact, vitamin K2 has so many functions not associated with vitamin K1 that most researchers insist that K1 and K2 are now seen as two different vitamins entirely. New research which expands our understanding of the many important roles of vitamin K2 is being published at a rapid pace.
Researchers now believe that 9 out of 10 people on a western diet may be at risk from vitamin K2 deficiency. Given the fact that this deficiency has such a wide scope of influence on human health, Kiran Krishnan, Research Microbiologist (and co-creator of MegaSporeBiotic) will be presenting an informative and lively talk on the benefits of vitamin K2, include recent research on beneficial dosage of this all important & life saving vitamin.
You will walk away with a new & in-depth appreciation of the numerous health implications & related issues of K2 deficiency and benefits of appropriate K2 supplementation. This includes valuable information that you can apply immediately to your clients, significantly reducing their risks of certain common chronic diseases.
