The wrong vitamin to take
for osteoporosis

You may have heard some conflicting reports recently about vitamin K and osteoporosis. I've told my readers for years that vitamin K is vital for preserving and restoring bone density. But others insist vitamin K doesn't help.

In fact, one study from Denmark found that dietary vitamin K does not offer protection for osteoporosis. This study followed 2,016 women and controlled for dietary vitamin K.

So what should you believe? Is vitamin K good for your bones?

The answer is quite simple. It all depends on what type of vitamin K you're taking. The above study used vitamin K1. I wouldn't expect vitamin K1 to offer any help. I've never seen vitamin K1 successfully treat osteoporosis.

Insulin’s Evil Twin

This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.

Vitamin K2, on the other hand, is a different story. I've repeatedly seen vitamin K2 help improve bone density. So make sure your osteoporosis supplement has vitamin K listed as K2. My favorite bone formula is the one sold by Advanced Bionutritionals. It has vitamin K2 and many other nutrients that can help your bones.

And a rich dietary source of vitamin K2 is the Japanese food natto. It comes from soy fermented by bacteria called Bacillus subtilus natto. Incidentally, natto is also the source of the natural blood thinning enzyme called nattokinase. So you'll get double protection.
