Osteoporosis is a disease where the bones become porous, causing a change in posture and making the bones brittle and easy to break. Women are more affected by this health issue because of physiological, hormonal and nutritional differences. Half of women between 45 and 75 show signs of osteoporosis.
At least one third of women in this group have advanced bone deterioration. Recent researches indicate that vitamin K is very important for the transportation of calcium from the blood to the bones.
They also indicate that most people are deficient in vitamin K and especially those suffering from osteoporosis. Vitamin K is usually found in foods from animals but since animals are now mostly feed with grains (low in vitamin K) instead of grass (high in vitamin K), our meats, dairy products and eggs are now vitamin K deficient. Fortunately, green vegetables (rich in chlorophyll) are also rich in vitamin K.
Vitamin K is still fairly hard to come by in a supplement form but we can obtain a fair amount by ensuring we have a good intestinal flora (source of vitamin K).
Molkosan is an excellent product that ensures a well equilibrated flora and promotes the assimilation of alkaline minerals. It would be highly beneficial to anybody suffering of osteoporosis or osteopenia.
