⚖ What is Vitamin K2?
Our bodies need calcium to build and maintain bones. When it breaks down calcium in our bodies, vitamin K2 activates a protein that helps the mineral bind to our bones to do its job. While research is ongoing, studies show a higher K2 intake improves bone density and reduces the risk of bone fractures.
⚖ Vitamin K2, Wrinkles and Reverse Aging Collagen and elastin are two of the components of skin that give it firmness and elasticity. As skin ages, it loses both collagen and elastin and its youthful appearance along with them. Vitamin K2 could help maintain youthful skin, activating Matrix-GLA and in turn preventing calcification of elastin.
⚖ Vitamin K2 and Varicose Veins Vitamin K2 activates matrix-Gla protein to mop up calcium in vessels. Calcification of veins has been shown to be a contributor to varicose veins, so Vitamin K2 may also help prevent this. Varicose veins are not always detrimental to our health but can be unsightly and uncomfortable.
⚖ Vitamin K2 and Blood Sugar Regulation The second Vitamin K-dependent protein, osteocalcin, may help the body to use insulin. Activated proteins may increase insulin sensitivity, the core problem in type-II diabetes.
⚖ Vitamin K2 to Increase Exercise Performance Bones release osteocalcin during exercise, seemingly sending out messages to help muscles cope with increased energy demands. The Vitamin K2 protein allows skeletal muscle to use energy during exercise, increasing the efficiency of the work out and potential performance.
⚖ Vitamin K2, Low Testosterone and Male Fertility K2 may assist in increasing the levels of male testosterone levels, which directly link to ones fertility.
⚖ Vitamin K2 and Kidney Stones People with chronic kidney disease and those receiving dialysis are at risk of Vitamin K deficiency.
One risk factor for kidney stones is excess Vitamin D, as demonstrated in lifeguards. But the real problem is that Vitamin D creates a need for Vitamin K2.
Patients with kidney stones secrete matrix-GLA protein in its inactive form. Vitamin K2 deficiency is a major cause of kidney stones. People with polymorphisms for matrix-GLA protein also have higher risk of kidney stones.
⚖ Vitamin K2 and the Brain The most obvious role of Vitamin K2 on the brain may be prevention of cardiac embolism or stroke. Matrix-GLA protein has a role in preventing stroke due to its cardiovascular benefits.
However, recently, Vitamin K2-dependent proteins have been shown to play a key role in the brain and central and peripheral nervous systems. They may even have an antioxidant role in the brain itself.
Specifically, Vitamin K2 – alongside K1 – seems to act with glutathione to prevent death of nerve cells and brain damage.
Its role could be key in the neurodegenerative process. Overall, it seems to prevent oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain and it seems a good dietary intake of Vitamin K2 is vital for optimal brain function.
