BOOK TIP: Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox (Kate Rheaume Bleue,2012)

“People suffer from a lack of calcium in their bones, although they have its excess in their arteries, causing them to develop osteoporosis and heart disease.” Paradox, huh? Yes, CALCIUM PARADOX.

The “calcium paradox” points out that people take vitamin D and calcium sopplements thinking they’re helping their bones – are at higher risk of atherosclerosis (formation of calcium plaques in arteries), heart attack and stroke, because the calcium accumulates in their arteries.

It turns out that the question “Is calcium dangerous?” – is the wrong one to ask.

The real question to ask is, “How can the body guide calcium safely into the bones where it helps us, and keep it away from soft tissues like arteries where it harms us?”

The secret to keeping bones strong and arteries clear is vitamin K2, a little-known supernutrient that humans once thrived on, and that has been ignored by scientists for almost 70 years.

Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox (Kate Rheaume Bleue,2012)

I definitely recommend this book. However, I think it might have been shorter, but the author was mindful of the constant repetition of the mechanisms of vitamin K2 in the body, the repetition of the mother of wisdom.

As far as vitamin K2 is concerned, it is a mistake not to mention Dr. Weston A. Price, which has been called as “Charles Darwin of nutrition” . The synergy between vitamin K2 and vitamins A and D is also described n this book. We can fully benefit from vitamin A and D only when we have vitamin K2. Dr. Price called these three vitamins together as activators or catalysts because the body needs them in order to make use of all other dietary nutrients, such as protein, minerals and water-soluble vitamins.
