Give me a K...

...he's strong to the finich cause he eats his spinach

Last week I told you about Vitamin D, D3 to be specific. Since then I've learned that a Health Claim has been filed with the FDA for Vitamin D. Now that may sound scary, but what it actually means is that since there have been certain scientific evidence that allows producers to make specific claims about the benefit of the product.

This week I want to share with you what I've learned about Vitamin K. This is the 2nd of the 8 ingredients that make up the new, most advanced wellness product available in the United States today, 8Rx. Most people talk about Vitamin K if they have used or know someone who uses Coumadin, an anticoagulant drug that works by inhibiting the body's blood clotting process. But it does more than just help the blood clot. Look here at the benefits:

• Helps prevent osteoporosis
• Helps reduce risk of cardiovascular disease
• Helps fight cancer
• Helps maintain healthy blood clotting
• Helps prevent excessive bleeding and hemorrhaging
• Cofactor in helping to prevent atherosclerosis of arteries
• Cofactor in bone metabolism by acting synergistically with Vitamin A & D

Vitamin K deficiencies are evident if you have symptoms related to problematic blood clotting or bleeding, like heavy menstrual bleeding, gum bleeding, bleeding within the digestive tract, nose bleeding, easy bruising, blood in the urine, prolonged clotting times, hemorrhaging, and anemia. Bone related symptoms can include loss of bone (osteopenia), decrease in bone mineral density (osteoporosis), and fractures-including common age-related fractures like that of the hips. Another set of vitamin K deficiency-related symptoms involves excess calcium in soft tissues like hardening of the arteries or calcium-related problems with heart valve function.

People with digestive issues tend to be prone to a Vitamin K deficiency. Particularly those with inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, short bowel syndrome, and digestive tract surgeries (like intestinal resection), or problems with pancreatic function, liver function, or gallbladder function.

Vitamin K can be obtained naturally from spinach, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard, green beans, asparagus, broccoli, kale and mustard greens, green peas and carrots.

I also read that Vitamin K may play a role in the prevention and/or treatment of the following health conditions:

* Bone fracture
* Chronic liver disease
* Cystic fibrosis
* Inflammatory bowel disease
* Liver cancer
* Pancreatic cancer
* Kidney stones
* Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy
* Thrombosis

The new 8Rx formula contains a synergistic blend of Vitamin D3, Vitamin K, DHA (Omega 3 - Fish Oil), Olive Leaf Extract/Sesame Lignans, 2-AEP Calcium, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Turmeric Powder/Piperine, and Green Tea that is unavailable in any other single supplement. There are over 1500 clinical studies published proving the health benefits of these ingredients supporting that they may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Stay tuned for more info on the benefits of these all-natural components!
