Did some quick searching still not much on the heart forum on k2.
Seems that hardening of the arteries is really related to calcium being in the wrong place, and that k2
moves it back to the bone and out of the arteries or prevents it being there in the first place.
Also seems to me that the medical establishment knows this,but not much done with the info.
The French paradox of low heart disease is bull, not all that much to do with red wine, but k2, eat a lot
of liver pate and cheese. Seems gouda edam and even some blue cheese have higher amounts.
Since docs don't seem to be using this info for hardening of the arteries, or the actual cause is lack of K2
I wonder if they are doing the same with UC, cause/how to fix might be known but no one is paying attention.
Of course there seems to be a more direct easy to detect, K2 effect on calcium movement than
there is for a causal effect, what ever it is for UC. Hard to believe the medical community would do this
but sometimes I wonder.
Random thought of the day.
Oh here is my experience with k2 from a 2012 post.
I find my own comments interesting where the gut bacteria seemed to go crazy, believe I stopped k2
very quickly. At some point might try again with much lower dose, or eat more gouda.
Took only 100 micrograms vitamin K2/MK-7 around 4 in the afternoon,
by 4:30/5 was getting gassy cramps,then pooed for about an hour. Then had gas all night and even this am. Had not eaten anything during the day that should have given me that much gas.
It is like the metabolic rate of the colon bacteria quadrupled or something.
The colon bacteria are supposed to make vitamin K,trying to find out if they need K for metabolism,something for sure is going on. Have to cut dose way back,to be hopefully sure this does not happen again. Not a fun experiene.
Have to check the stuff I bought to make sure nothing else strange is in the pill.
I know I get little K2 from diet,but the bacteria went crazy which I find interesting,if I can stand the gas. Seems that I might be very deficient in vitamin K.
Early work on vitamin K,downloads slow.
Seems that some bacteria including MAP need vitamin K to grow.
UC-1980, same flare since 1986. Still smoke. MEDS: None
