Could the Vitamin K2 in our Total Balance range help reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes by 126%?

Summary

I know, it sounds too good to be true…but according to this study, every increase of 10 micrograms of vitamin K2 intake reduced the risk of type-2 diabetes by 7%.

I know, it sounds too good to be true…but according to this study, every increase of 10 micrograms of vitamin K2 intake reduced the risk of type-2 diabetes by 7%.

We have 180 micrograms of Vitamin K2 in our Total Balance range (except the Children’s)…so does this mean our Total Balance products will significantly slash the risk of type-2 diabetes by as much as 126%?

We doubt it...but, it is an interesting thought! There are many factors to be considered, especially with a condition like type-2 diabetes. Lifestyle factors such as diet, family history, exercise and many more need to be assessed before any real statistical evidence can be concluded.

However, there’s no doubt that Vitamin K2 has many health benefits…especially helping improve cardiovascular health, strengthening the skeletal system, and yes, reducing the risk of various health conditions like type-2 diabetes.

It’s by far the most potent member of the Vitamin K family and because it’s 50 times more expensive than other forms of Vitamin K - like K1 for example, which is found in many commercial supplements – K2 is only found in products that have reputed levels of efficacy, including our Bone-Protec, Multi-Xtra, and Cardio-Klenz.

Vitamin K2 is also featured in the next issue of our Xtend-Your-Life monthly newsletter…it’s FREE so why not subscribe to it now!
