    Vitamin K Exerts Impressive Effects on Arterial Health

    Published by under Anti Aging - Hormones

    A new animal study has found that vitamin K may prevent calcification of the arteries.
    Arterial calcification is generally regarded as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Matrix Gla-protein (MGP) is a potent inhibitor of arterial calcification and its activity depends on vitamin K2. In rats, inactivation of MGP by treatment with the vitamin K-antagonist warfarin leads to rapid calcification of the arteries. Consequently, researchers decided to investigate whether a vitamin-K-rich diet can regress arterial calcification. Continue Reading »
