Heart Protection for MEN above 40
Heart disease is the number one cause of death globally and affects nearly one-quarter of death in men. The number is on an increasing trend due to aging population, bad lifestyle habit and work stress. Men usually develop heart disease ten to fifteen years earlier than women. They are more likely to die of heart disease in their prime age. The first thing that crosses most people’s mind when heart disease is mentioned is cholesterol. However, a study conducted in 2017 proved that cholesterol is not the only culprit that lay the foundation of heart disease but calcium deposits in the blood vessels as well. It is a well-known fact that fish oil benefits the heart but it does not help in the prevention of calcium plaques formation.
What is Vitamin K2?
Vitamin K2 is the nutrient that helps to prevent calcium deposits in the blood vessels. Our body has a powerful inhibitor that clears calcium from the blood vessels. Matrix GLA protein (MGP) is the sole protein in the body that inhibits calcium from ‘sticking’ to the blood vessels. In order for MGP to do its job, vitamin K2 is needed to activate MGP. Only activated MGP is functional to move calcium away from the blood vessels. Because our local diet is lacking vitamin K2, we need supplementation to ensure we are getting a healthy level of vitamin K2.
How is Vitamin D3 assist in Heart Health?
Vitamin K2 and D3 work hand-in-hand to ensure our heart stays healthy. Vitamin D3 helps to keep the heart and blood vessels in good working condition. Decreased level of vitamin D3 has been linked to high blood pressure. A study showed that vitamin D3 can repair damages to the heart and blood vessels caused by high blood pressure. Low level of vitamin D3 also increases the risk of stroke. A healthy level of vitamin D3 may help to improve the lining of blood vessel walls to allow blood to flow freely and reduces the harmful effects of inflammation on the blood vessel walls.
