In this video, I’m going to talk to you about vitamin K2 and some of the functions that go way beyond bone health.
When we talk about vitamin K2, most people associate it with strengthening your bones and removing soft tissue calcium from the joints and arteries. Vitamin K2 does so much more.
The health of your bones is important in the production of immune cells—white blood cells originate in the bone marrow. Your bones also act as endocrine glands. They create a hormone called osteocalcin. Vitamin K2 triggers osteocalcin, which can affect blood sugars.
Here are some of the many benefits of vitamin K2:
1. Improves insulin resistance
2. Increases insulin sensitivity
3. Suppresses inflammation
4. Decreases fat accumulation
5. Increases energy capacity
6. Increases testosterone
The best food sources of vitamin K2 are:
• Egg yolk
• Goose liver
• Grass-fed cheese (muenster, gouda, brie, edam, and hard cheeses)
The reason why these are mostly animal products is that animals consume grass, which contains vitamin K1, and they convert it into vitamin K2. The vitamin K2 found in natto and sauerkraut are formed by bacteria in the fermentation process.
