Boost Bone Strength With Grape Seed Extract & Vitamin K!
There's More to Strong Bones Than Calcium and Vitamin D
Everyone thinks that the way to good bone health is easy to accomplish with exercise, Vitamin D and calcium. But Sally Field tells us differently on TV, which is why she's on a prescription medication to stop her osteoporosis and pitching to us that we should be on it too. Au contraire, Sally! We've got other options!
Vitamin K and Bones?
Your mom told you that Vitamin K helped your blood clot and she's right. But there's more to this than meets the artery.
Researchers know that there are two types of Vitamin K. Vitamin K1, is found in greens and veggies and Vitamin K2, the one that interests us, is found in meat, egg yolks and dairy products.
It's Vitamin K2 that helps prevent fractures and strengthens bones (it keeps calcium out of the arteries and in the bones), although both forms of Vitamin K are very good for our health.
Grape Seed Extract and Calcium Builds Strong Bones
Researchers have recently found that grape seed extract in conjunction with calcium, is much more effective when it comes to building strong bones than calcium alone.
The Madam Aphrodite™ Solution
Madam Aphrodite™ says to build and maintain strong bones, take your calcium (calcium citrate is best), along with Vitamins K1 and K2, Vitamin D, along with the added boost of grape seed extract.
All of the supplements mentioned above can be taken in pill form if you don't get enough of these nutrients in your diet.
Life Extension Foundation recommends: about 1,000 mcg a day of vitamin K2, along with 9,000 mcg vitamin K1 for most people. While many health professionals recommend supplementing with 100-600 mg of grape seed extract daily in divided doses.
