Here’s the 5 second brain hack that may help prevent dementia for the rest of your life
This 1 vitamin helps men drop fat and add muscle
Vitamin K is actually a number of different vitamins, believe it or not.
Vitamin K1 comes from leafy green vegetables.
Then there are a number of variations in vitamin K2 – these are made from K1 by bacteria.
Vitamin K2 can be consumed in fermented foods like cheeses or gotten from eating liver.
We should also make vitamin K2 in our guts – but this depends on gut bacteria.
Vitamins K are by now well known for their ability to keep bones strong and full of calcium…
… all while optimizing the health of the blood vessels – by keeping them free of that same calcium.
But vitamin K also has less well known effects on metabolic health.
Animal studies indicate that vitamin K can prevent fat gain and decrease triglycerides.
The animal research was carried out at Japan Women’s University in Tokyo. The paper was published in Bone.
“Vitamin K is a cofactor for an essential enzyme for the γ-carboxylation of vitamin K-dependent proteins such as osteocalcin and matrix Gla protein.”
The authors of this study were looking at the role of vitamin K in bone metabolism via its effects on the proteins mentioned above.
“The relationship between dietary vitamin K intake and bone metabolism has not been thoroughly investigated.”
Other research has clarified this – but these researchers also looked at other effects of vitamin K in the body.
“Moreover, vitamin K is thought to have other actions beyond influencing the γ-carboxylation status.”
There are many different forms of vitamin K.
These researchers look at some of the most well studied and most important including vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 MK-4.
“We examined the effects of the long-term addition of vitamin K1 or vitamin K2 MK-4 to a control diet on bone mineral density, bone strength, body composition, and serum parameters in rats.”
Vitamin K1 increases the bone density of the femur and the animals.
Vitamin K2 was found to increase bone strength.
“However, two types of bone strength parameter: the minimum cross-sectional moment of inertia and the polar moment of inertia, were significantly higher in the vitamin K2 MK-4 group than in the control.”
These are not surprising results as they have been seen in many other studies.
The surprising aspect of this study was an incidental finding.
Both types of vitamin K significantly decreased fat gain in the animals.
“Interestingly, the addition of vitamin K1 or vitamin K2 MK-4 significantly decreased the total fat accumulation.”
Not only were the animals leaner but the serum triglycerides were also significantly lower.
“Serum triglycerides were reduced by 48% in the vitamin K1 group and 29% in the vitamin K2 MK-4 group compared with the control.”
Vitamin K does far more than protect bones and blood vessels.
The different forms of vitamin K have profound effects on metabolic health.
Vitamin K can help to shape a leaner body and improve triglyceride levels.
“This is the first study to demonstrate the effect of the long-term addition of vitamin K1 or vitamin K2 MK-4 to the control diet on body composition and serum parameters in an in vivo system using rats.”
We also know that vitamin K2 has protective effects on the testicles, preventing a decrease in testosterone in some contexts.
Everyone should be looking to optimize their intake of vitamin K – particularly vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 MK-4.
“Further studies on the mechanism of vitamin K supplementation in the regulation of bone metabolism would provide valuable data on the prevention of lifestyle-related disorders, including osteoporosis.”
You should always consult your healthcare practitioner for guidance on medical diagnosis and treatment.

This delicious morning shake boosts men’s vitamin K2 levels for better penile blood flow
If you want great blood flow down there, it’s essential that you get enough vitamin K2.
Because vitamin K2 clears the arteries out, removing any blockages and putting calcium deposits back into the bones where they belong.
This improves blood flow almost immediately — especially down there where men need good blood flow the most.
Plus, as an added bonus, having the right amount of vitamin K2 in the body reduces the chance of heart disease by more than 50%:
But here’s the thing — men should get vitamin K2 from foods, NOT supplements.
So here’s a deliciously simple shake I drink in the morning to boost vitamin K2 levels and improve penile blood flow
