*Vitamin K2 Up™ is a fat soluble vitamin which is not stored in the human body and as a result it must be consumed regularly. Most people get just enough K from their diets to maintain adequate blood clotting, but NOT enough to offer protection against the following health problems — and the list is growing: Prostate cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer and leukemia, arterial calcification, cardiovascular disease, varicose veins and osteoporosis.*

The benefits of K2 have been well documented through years of research. The Rotterdam Study of 7983 men & women who were 55 years of age or older was the first to prove that a daily intake of vitamin K2 of more than 32 mcg, reduces the risk of both arterial calcification and cardiovascular death by 50%, without any side effects. In 2008, a German research group discovered that vitamin K2 provides substantial protection against prostate cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer among men in the United States. According to Dr. Vermeer, men taking the highest amounts of K2 had about 50 percent less prostate cancer. In a subsequent study called the Prospect Study, 16,000 people were followed for 10 years. Researchers found that each additional 10 mcg of K2 in the diet resulted in 9 percent fewer cardiac events. There is also research emerging that vitamin K can help protect against brain disease. However, it is too early to say exactly what types of damage it prevents, and how, but it is an area of intense interest to vitamin K scientists right now. *
