⚠️ 30% of adults and 50% of older adults have a vitamin deficiency that contributes to unhealthy aging.

💡 This vitamin deficiency leads to hardening of the arteries, calcification of the circulatory system, and other tissues associated with unhealthy aging.

Taking calcium supplements may increase the risk of vascular calcification and heart disease.

00:01:44 Vitamin K2 is crucial for directing calcium to the bones instead of the arteries, preventing unhealthy aging. It activates proteins that store calcium in bones and prevent calcification in arteries and cartilage.

🔑 Vitamin K2 is crucial for directing calcium to the bones instead of the arteries.

⚙️ Vitamin K2 activates proteins called osteocalcin and MGP, which regulate calcium integration in bones and prevent calcification in arteries and cartilage.

🦴 Deficiency in vitamin K2 can contribute to unhealthy aging due to improper calcium distribution.

00:03:27 Vitamin K2 deficiency contributes to unhealthy aging, increasing the risk of age-related diseases, kidney disease, diabetes, bone fractures, cardiovascular problems, and overall mortality. Functional decline and frailty also occur.

🔑 Vitamin K2 deficiency is associated with age-related diseases, kidney disease, diabetes, bone fractures, and increased mortality.

❤️ Vitamin K2 deficiency leads to vascular problems, including heart disease, calcification of the arteries, heart failure, and higher risk of fatal heart attacks.

🦴 Functional problems such as decline in mobility, osteoarthritis, muscle loss, and frailty are linked to vitamin K2 deficiency, especially in individuals over 50 or 60 years old.

00:05:10 The importance of vitamin K2 supplementation in preventing age-related diseases, improving mobility, and increasing strength. Determining the necessary dosage is challenging.

💊 Supplementing vitamin K2 can reverse disease processes, reduce calcification of arteries and heart valves, lower blood pressure, and decrease the risk of certain cancers.

🔬 Vitamin K2 supplementation is important for preventing diseases and improving mobility, agility, muscle strength, and bone strength as we age.

📏 There is currently no reliable blood test for measuring vitamin K2 levels, so it's best to either increase dietary intake or take a supplement.

00:06:54 This video discusses the importance of vitamin K2 and its impact on aging. It highlights the recommended dosage, potential interactions with medications, and plant-based sources of vitamin K.

🔑 Vitamin K deficiency can lead to unhealthy aging.
