High Vitamin K2 Reduced Death From Heart Disease by 57%

Vitamin K2 (MK-7) prevented death from heart disease
Study Title: "Dietary intake of menaquinone is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease: the Rotterdam Study."
Number of Participants: 4807 subjects
Length of Study: 10 years
Type of Study: Follow-up of a prospective, population-based study
Publication: The Journal of Nutrition
Study Result: Those subjects in the top third of Vitamin K2 intake had a 57% reduced risk of dying from heart disease compared to those in the bottom third. Also, there was a 52% reduced incidence of artery calcification (plaque) in the top third of Vitamin K

A follow-up study was done on 4807 patients who participated in the population-based Rotterdam study. These patients were followed from 1990-2000 and had no history of heart attack at the beginning of the study. In the group with the highest intake of Vitamin K2, the risk of dying from heart disease was decreased by 57% compared to those with the lowest intake. Also, intake of Vitamin K2 was associated with a 52% lower risk of calcification (plaque) in the aortic artery. Vitamin K1 was not associated with a protective effect, only Vitamin K2, also known as the menaquinones, had the protective effect.
