More vitamin K goodness:

Vitamin K is not just for blood clotting regulation. Vitamin K also works hard to prevent calcium deposits in arterial walls and helps the body put calcium in the bones. Research has proven that eating a healthy diet with adequate vitamin K can help prevent arterial hardening and atherosclerosis. Vitamin K works with fat-soluble nutrients to protect the brain from arterial calcification that leads to stroke and/or cognitive decline. Vitamin K still does even more while it maintains the white matter region of the brain, supports the myelin sheath, and increases the synapse speed. Animals with the lowest vitamin K levels display the highest degree of cognitive decline as they age, as compared with the highest vitamin K group. Fermented foods, egg yolks and certain cheeses provide high levels of vitamin K2. Supplementing with a full range of vitamin K isomers (1000 – 2000 mcg per day) will help avert both atherosclerosis and cognitive function decline.
