How "Old" Are You (Inside)?

Vitamin K2 supports cardiovascular health by activating proteins that help to keep arteries flexible by regulating calcification of blood vessels, like the aorta.
A test has recently been developed to determine the level of a person's aortic stiffness. Aortic stiffness is a predictor for risk of heart disease, stroke and dementia, and has been linked to inadequate dietary intakes, specifically of Vitamin K2, as substantiated in population and clinical studies.
Here is a list of some of the studies that address aortic stiffness:
  • Increased Arterial Stiffness is Superior to Blood Pressure in Predicting Cognitive Decline in Healthy Adults read
  • Signs Of Cognitive Decline And Alzheimer’s Can Be Detected In Younger Adults - A new study found a link between increased aortic stiffness and early signs of brain injury, which can potentially lead to Alzheimer’s disease, in healthy, middle-aged adults. read
