    Default Growing Evidence That Vitamin K Can Improve Heart Health

    Edith Cowan University
    January 1 2022

    New Edith Cowan University (ECU) research has found that people who eat a diet rich in vitamin K have up to a 34 percent lower risk of atherosclerosis-related cardiovascular disease (conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels).

    Researchers examined data from more than 50,000 people taking part in the Danish Diet, Cancer, and Health study over a 23-year period. They investigated whether people who ate more foods containing vitamin K had a lower risk of cardiovascular disease related to atherosclerosis (plaque build-up in the arteries).
    There are two types of vitamin K found in foods we eat: vitamin K1 comes primarily from green leafy vegetables and vegetable oils while vitamin K2 is found in meat, eggs, and fermented foods such as cheese.

    After surviving my recent blood pressure crisis without so much as a blink, I'd have to give credit to vitamin K along with all the other heart healthy supplements I've been taking for half a lifetime. To be honest, I'm kind of disappointed that the doctor who wanted to send me to the nearest hospital in an ambulance, and the two or three nurses who participated in that event, have never contacted me to ask what I did to avoid a major stroke.
    Of course, I should add that I eat a lot of vegetables and every one of them except peas, I grow organically in my own garden and can or freeze for year-round availability.
