What do you think of when you read ‘K2’?
Possibly the highest mountain in the world?
Perhaps the London Bus route?
A two-seater kayak…?
Whatever you think of it’s probably not the vitamin for bone, blood and heart health. K2 is also beneficial for Alzheimer’s disease, a variety of cancers, varicose veins, and skin aging.
If you have children or are elderly you may have come across Vitamin K. What you may not know is that while Vitamin K1 is readily available in the diet it only stays in the body for 8 hours, whereas K2 is more effective because it is 10x more easily absorbed and is still at work in your body 3 days later.
But K2 cannot be gained from the average diet.
Women who have experienced the menopause lose bone mass at an incresed rate, and they, along with the elderly and children, will benefit from a good intake of Vitamin K.
