‘Vitamin K2 and the Role it Plays in Reducing Multiple Chronic Diseases.’
Presented by Kiran Krishnan, Chief Science Officer of Physician’s Exclusive
Vitamin K2, the most recently recognised vitamin in the western world is now achieving the recognition as an omnipotent
nutrient that exerts control and function in virtually every tissue type in our body, including the digestive tract. Dozens of large scale studies have clearly illustrated its role in bone health, heart health via calcification, cancer and diabetes. K2 acts as an “activator” or carboxylating agent to activate key vitamin K dependent proteins.
Given the fact that the majority of the western population is sub-clinically deficient in vitamin K2, Kiran will explain the wide impact that this is having on our health. Additionally, he will share new discoveries in the function of vitamin K2 in the body, going beyond its well-known role as a carboxylating vitamin in bone health and heart health. These latest discoveries will further illustrate the health dangers we face in the western world, and the tremendous opportunity we have to rescue our clients from years of vitamin K2 deficiency and reduce their risk of the most common chronic diseases.
- Brief understanding of the background of vitamin K2, its discovery, how it is produced, sources in nature and comparison to the more well-known, Vitamin K1.
- Understanding the difference between the various forms of vitamin K2 on the market and the important features that will lead to efficacy or non-response.
- Overview of the studies to understand vitamin K2’s role in bone health, heart health, diabetes and cancer.
- New discoveries in the function of vitamin K2 – going beyond carboxylation and into redox reactions.
Understanding why vitamin K2 may be considered one of the most important nutrients to positively impact chronic diseases.
