Recent study revealed that 1 out of 2 people have some degree of calcium deposits in the blood vessels despite having normal level of blood pressure, blood glucose, HbA1C and total cholesterol. Calcium plaque in the blood vessels usually present no symptom and is a strong predictor of future heart disease risk. The prevalence of calcium deposit in the blood vessels can increase up to 93% as a person gets older.
Vitamin K2 with D3 is the promising way to preserve cardiovascular health as a person age and is needed even more so in individuals with other cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Study has shown that vitamin K2 reduces risk of calcium deposits and cardiovascular death by 50%.
