It’s like a grenade with the pin partially pulled out. Except this one is hiding INSIDE your body.
It’s a little bulge in your main artery called an aortic aneurysm. And the thing about THIS ticking time bomb is that it could be sitting there right now, silently, with no signs or symptoms.
Until one day… BOOM!
The bulge pops, and you’re in the ER. And that’s if you’re lucky.
In 1 in 5 cases, you won’t even make it to the ER. That pop leads to sudden, massive bleeding, and near-instant death.
By the time you feel it, it’s ALREADY too late.
The mainstream doesn’t talk about this terrifying condition much. Probably because they have so little to offer for it. There’s no routine test to detect it, and no drug to prevent it.
But don’t worry. Today I’m going to share with you what the mainstream won’t.
I’ve got a way to help BLOCK those aortic aneurysms. A simple solution that can help protect your main artery, defuse that grenade, and save your life.
Protective protein helps you dodge deadly aneurysms
These aneurysms happen as the artery walls get weaker, usually because of calcification.
That’s when calcium, bad fats, and other gunk clumps together and cling to your artery walls. And then these toxic buildups eat away at them, like battery acid.
But new research reveals a weapon that can help blast away the buildups, clear out the acid, and lay down a protective layer. It’s a protein that’s secreted from the walls of the arteries to ensure those toxic clumps never stick in the first place.
But as you get older, well… you know the drill. Nothing works quite like it should anymore, right?
And that artery protecting, aneurysm-fighting protein is no exception. Just like you these days, this powerful little protein needs a little extra help to get going too.
But it turns out you can give it that help in the form of vitamin K.
The overlooked vitamin that can save your life
Many folks have never even heard of vitamin K. But the new study finds the artery-cleaning protein I just told you about depends on the vitamin to do its job.
When you miss out on K, the protein can’t clean up calcium. This leads to weaker walls and can raise your risk of a devastating aneurysm.
And that’s not all this often overlooked vitamin can do.
Those same calcium deposits lead to hardened arteries, and other studies have shown that K can help there, too. By keeping the calcium off those walls, the arteries can stay strong and flexible leaving you with a healthier heart.
No dangerous hardening.
No deadly aneurysms.
But this is where it gets a little tricky: Not all K is equal.
The new study didn’t get into the specifics of which K is best. But earlier research has found that the K2 you get from grass-fed animal foods and fermented foods is the form that can best protect arteries and stop those calcium deposits.
Those foods would include…
- Greek yogurt
- grass-fed hard cheese
- grass-fed liver
- pastured egg yolks
It’s also available as a supplement. But be sure to check in with your doc before trying it since K2 doesn’t mix well with certain blood thinners such as warfarin.
