  • Vitamin K2 and Stroke
    Summary In the one study to date that has examined the intake of vitamin K2 and incidence of stroke, no association was found.

  • Low Carb, Eco-Atkins Diet after 6 Months
    Summary Eco-Atkins is a vegan, low-carbohydrate diet. After 6 months on the diet, people lost 15 lbs and LDL cholesterol levels went from 174 to 157 mg/dl. Compliance was not high.

    In June of 2013, the Cochrane Collaboration updated their meta-analysis of double-blinded, placebo-controlled randomized controlled trials testing whether zinc is useful in treating or preventing the common cold (1).

  • Vitamin K2: Bones Part 1: Clinical Trial from The Netherlands
    It appears that I have exhausted the research on vitamin K2 and heart disease that measures direct outcomes in humans. I will summarize that research soon. In the meantime, I have just finished reading a 2013 double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled trial on the MK-7 version of vitamin K2 conducted in The Netherlands (1). The study included […] (...more)

  • Vitamin K2 Part 4: Germany & LDL
    A reader pointed out an abstract of a cohort study looking at heart disease and vitamin K2 intake (1), the only one I’ve seen that was not from The Netherlands. In this case it was the EPIC-Heidelberg cohort from Germany and their findings disagreed with The Netherlands studies depicted in the previous K2 posts. Vitamin […] (...more)
