Publisher's Summary

Are you taking calcium or vitamin D? This book could save your life! 

Learn the secret to avoiding osteoporosis and heart disease. Millions of people take calcium and Vitamin D supplements thinking they're helping their bones. The truth is, without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen could prove dangerous. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it's needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue, like the arteries, leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis, or the dreaded "calcium paradox".

This is the first book to reveal how universal a Vitamin K2 deficiency is and the risk (in the form of cancer and diabetes, among other ailments) that the absence of Vitamin K2 poses. Written by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a popular health expert on Canadian television and radio, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox sounds a warning about the popularity of the calcium and Vitamin D craze, while illustrating the enormous health benefits of Vitamin K2 in making the body less susceptible to dental cavities, heart disease, prostate cancer, liver cancer, diabetes, wrinkles, obesity, varicose veins, and other ailments.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Best Book on K2

I'm a huge believer in the benefits of K2 and other fat soluble vitamins. Having read about Weston Price and so called Activator X, I was eager to learn more about the benefits of K2. I was actually quite surprised to find a book solely dedicated to this one vitamin. This book provides all the information one needs and then some. I still go back and listen to this audio book when I'm on the treadmill.

K2 and fat soluble vitamins like A and D are great, but you still need to be an informed consumer if you plan to use them. A book like this goes a long way in providing that needed information.
