As a follow up to our recent analysis of several vitamin K2 supplements on the market, today let’s explore the critical importance that vitamin K2 plays in not only our oral health, but so many systems throughout the body.
In this interview with Kiran Krishnan, a researcher and product developer who, for the past 15 years, has helped increase the global knowledge base on vitamin K2, we take a close look at the studies that suggest that vitamin K2 helps:
- increase bone density helping us stop tooth decay
- keep calcium out of soft tissues like our arteries
- restore mitrochondrial function and literally reverse symptoms in Parkinson’s disease and other neurological issues
- improve cardiac output which directly supports heart health and increases athletic performance
