In the last post I commented that eating pasture raised is best because the animals are eating what they are intended to eat and therefore are healthier and the products made from them are healthier for us. Another reason is that pasture raised animal products are higher in vitamin K2. In a post some months ago I mentioned a great book that tells us why we need vitamin K2. This book is called 'Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Pradox' and you can find it on Amazon. In short K2 tells our body where to deposit any calcium that we ingest including in supplements. As the book explains, most of us are indeed deficient in K2 and this causes our body to put calcium not in our bones but rather in our arteries and even in our brain! This can cause heart disease, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's. So this is really important!!! So I recommend that you add as much pasture raised products as possible. This includes meats such as beef and chicken and also eggs, yogurt, milk and cheese. Or you can take a supplement which comes in two forms: MK4 and MK7. Do a little research on google or youtube and get started soon.
