BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- William Faloon from Life Extension, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla-based organization dedicated to the extension of the healthy human lifespan, will appear on The SUZANNE Show this week to discuss the effects of Vitamin K2 on heart health. His appearance, which is one in a series devoted to preventative healthcare, airs on Wednesday, October 3, at 7:00 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.
As we age, we all experience some hardening of our arteries due to calcification, a process that occurs when calcium travels into the arterial system instead of the bones where we need it. Eventually these passageways become harder and more brittle and the risk of heart disease increases. Vitamin K2 can reduce this dangerous accumulation since it functions as a "regulator" of calcium in the body.
Getting enough K2 presents a bit of a challenge, however, since it can be difficult to obtain from the typical American diet. Daily supplementation is the easiest and least expensive solution, with a month's supply of the vitamin going for about $9. It's a small price to pay for the potentially life changing improvement in health that K2 offers.
"Studies now indicate that people with optimal levels of Vitamin K2 have a reduction in their risk of dying from heart disease," Faloon says.
Heart disease is currently the number one killer of both men and women in America, but according to Life Extension we now have a powerful weapon to fight back. Tune in this Wednesday to discover how easy it can be to improve heart health with one simple and inexpensive supplement.
