Did you catch Dr. Ralph Holsworth’s interview on the Health Quest Podcast?
“Vitamin K-2 is Critical for Heart and Bone Health”
In this interview, host Steve Langford and Dr. Holsworth discuss the importance of standardized natural nutritional products.
“Though our bones may seem static, our skeletal system is very much alive and constantly reshaping. In our bones, there are continuous opposing forces of bone deconstruction and bone reconstruction that contribute to this dynamic reshaping process. Two major cells attribute to this: osteoblasts (cells that build bone) and osteoclasts (cells that break down bone). As osteoblasts continually incorporate calcium to build bone matrix and osteoclasts break down bone, both cell types are regulated by only a handful of proteins: Gla protein, S protein, and Osteocalcin. The activity of all three of these proteins is dependent on Vitamin K2. “ – nattomk7.com
