One of the most insightful and informative books that I read this month was “Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox“. It was written by Kate Rhéaume-Bleue, N.D. (pictured below) , a naturopathic physician and Canadian expert in natural medicine.
Vitamin K2 was actually something I mentioned in “12 Mental Performance Hacks: A Cheat Sheet For Boosting Your Brain Power”.
I was so impressed by this vitamin's ability to do everything from improve bone density to reverse heart disease to cut off blood flow to cancerous tumors to increase VO2 max in athletes that I got Dr. Kate onto a call to talk about. During this audio interview, you'll find out:
Is it common for people to be deficient in Vitamin K2?
How does Vitamin K2 interact with Vitamin D? How does Vitamin A sit into this scenario?
Is supplementation necessary, or can you get enough K2 from food?
If someone wants to buy a K2 supplement, what should they look for?
Could athletes benefit from supplementing or choosing K2-rich foods and if so, how?
I would highly recommend that if you want to find out more about Vitamin K2 that you read Dr. Kate's book: “Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox“. It will tell you everything that you need to know about how to implement this very important vitamin into your diet or supplementation protocol, and multiple reasons to do so.
