Vitamin K: Arterial Health
Posted by Gus Perez on 8/12/2014 to • Cardiovascular System

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in Americans, and this risk is much higher for Hispanic Americans because of the causes that lead to cardiovascular disease such as diabetes, obesity, cholesterol, physical inactivity, smoking and high blood pressure. According to the American Heart Association, 33.4% of men and 30.7% of women, Mexican-American, have cardiovascular disease. 

A cardiovascular disease that is prevalent in mature adults is vascular calcification. Vascular calcification is when calcium stops absorbing in the bones and enters the arterial wall. Vascular calcification may increase the risk of heart attacks. 

The good news is that you can reduce your risk by taking Natura-Genics’® Vitamin K. Studies have found that insufficient vitamin K leads to vascular calcification, particularly Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 helps control calcium equilibrium by keeping calcium in the bones and out of the arteries, reversing vascular calcification. Fortunately, Natura-Genics® has provided the best Vitamin K (MK-7) for your cardiovascular health. According to LEF (Life Extension Foundation), MK-7 form is remarkably long acting and achieves higher levels in the blood. 

In order to achieve good cardiovascular health you have to discipline yourself by eating healthy (living foods), exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, resting, as well as taking Vitamin K2
