Sun, Apr 21 10:53am · Vitamin K2 and Calcium (CAC) Score in Heart & Blood Health

Aged 69, I undertook a calcium score as a preventative test, even though I am fit and all my annual blood tests and vitamin levels were positive.
My score was 1500
I took a stress test, result negative.
I do 6 daily HIIT classes per week and every second day do weights including 4 sets of 10 chin-ups and 20 bench presses of 30kg.
Diet good – eat only one meal per day and I am daily in ketosis – take no medication, never experienced any form of heart or chest pain.
Started taking 2 180 mcg tablets of K2 Menaquinone 7 every 12 hours.
Has anyone had experience of reducing their calcium score by taking K2, as literature search is very encouraging.
Intend to do another calcium score in 6 months time to see if there is a reduction.
Does any one know when the results of the Dutch trial on K2 supplementation will be released in 2018.
Australian cardiologist I spoke with was not aware of any K2 influence on calcium score and was skeptical, even though I should him the discussion paper.
Would appreciate any comments or feedback.
