Today we’re going to talk about the top cause of artery calcification.

The body becomes more calcified with age. But, our goal is to keep the bones calcified and the other tissues from becoming calcified. A CAC test is a great way to determine if you have calcium in your arteries.

There are two types of cells in your bones. Osteoblasts are cells that build bone, and osteoclasts break down bones. If there are too many osteoblasts in your arteries, the arteries can start turning to bone.

There are stem cells in the inner tissue of the arteries that have the potential to turn into a certain type of cell, depending on what the body needs. If someone is developing bone tissue in their arteries, there is a problem with the differentiation of these stem cells—they’re turning into the wrong thing.

Sufficient amounts of vitamin K2 may help inhibit calcification. Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium out of the arteries and in the bones, making the bones strong. Your good bacteria make vitamin K2.

Causes of a vitamin K2 deficiency:
• A fatty liver
• Gallbladder issues
• Gut problems
• Not consuming enough fermented foods
• A low-fat diet

Foods rich in vitamin K2:
• Natto
• Sauerkraut
• Cheese
• Butter
• Kefir
• Egg yolk
• Liver
• Sausage

If you take vitamin K2 as a supplement, consider taking the natural form called MK7 and take it with vitamin D.
