❓ Why Calcium Is Clogging Your Arteries & Weakening Bones

YES! - Improve My Vitamin D+K

Today I’m going to talk about how calcium is clogging your arteries and can cause so many health problems for your heart, brain and other organs.

It’s linked to joint pain as well.

Plus, hair loss and erectile problems.

Heart Disease Is #1 Killer

Now, If you’ve watched my previous videos, you may recall I have a family history of heart attacks on my mom’s side and strokes on my dad’s side.

Based on health statistics for the past 100+ years, heart disease is the #1 killer in the world – killing more people each year than all the other diseases combined.

coronary artery disease

And coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease, which is what I’m going to quickly talk about today.

Unfortunately, there’s never ONE cause or solution to this or any health problem. For example:

  • High and unbalanced cholesterol levels are contributing factors.
  • High blood sugar and insulin resistance also come into play.
  • Inflammation is also a massive problem – both of which high cholesterol and blood sugar are causing factors.

Of course, genetics always plays a big role.

However, genetics aside – one of the most significant problems is the negative changes in your hormones due to aging.

And, this makes sense when you think about it…

This is why younger people rarely have cholesterol problems or die of heart attacks and strokes. They have youthful hormones that can fix a bad diet, lack of sleep, and so forth.

This is also why women who go through menopause suddenly start having all of these problems – high cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar… in addition to hair loss.

Again, negative changes in hormones.

Calcium Buildup In Your Arteries

Now, today I’m not going to talk about improving cholesterol, blood sugar, or inflammation.

Instead, I’m going to talk about something most people rarely speak about and that’s calcium buildup in your arteries.

And how do you know if you have excess calcium in your arteries?… I’ll tell you how in a minute.

But, there’s also a secondary problem with calcium and that’s the HARDENING of your arteries.

  • Hardened arteries lose elasticity
  • Arteries lose the ability to adapt to stress, such as blood pressure, etc.
  • Hardened arteries also put huge stress on the entire body, especially your heart and brain

One big problem is that hardened arteries and calcium buildup can also decrease blood flow – which affects your entire body.

And yes, as I mentioned earlier – hair loss and erectile problems are both big problems.

This does NOT mean that calcium is bad. Remember – we want calcium to be in your BONES. So we have stronger bones.

Unfortunately, as people get older, their bones get weaker and more brittle. One of the major causes of death in older people is falling and breaking a bone – such as hips and so forth.

Thus, the problem is that calcium is not being deposited in your bones, which is what we want and need.

Instead, as we age, calcium is being deposited more into our:

  • Joints – which can cause joint pain
  • Eyes – which can cause poor eyesight
  • And Arteries – which control blood flow everywhere.

These are all the places we do NOT want calcium.

How Do You Know You Have Calcium Buildup?

So, as stated earlier – how do you know if you have calcium in your arteries and how bad is it, especially if you’re over the age of 40 and certainly past 60?…

One way is to get a calcium-score screening heart test or a coronary calcium scan.

You get a CAC score, which stands for Coronary Artery Calcification. You can ask your doctor about this test.

Calcified artery

Ideally, the result score would be 0. This means, NO calcium in your arteries.

I’ve seen people who are unhealthy, with a score of 0 – which is great. They have good genetics and hormones.

And I’ve seen people who are super healthy with high calcium scores – which doesn’t make sense. But, again – genetics and hormones play a big role.

So, let’s say you don’t want to take this test for whatever reason – you don’t have the time, the money, insurance, no doctor, etc.

What Can You Do?

What can you do, to improve your calcium deposits in your bones and not in your arteries?…

Well, if your answer is “not take calcium supplements”, that’s not right. Remember, calcium has many benefits, as long as it’s going to the right places – such as your bones.

However, a supplement that is very powerful in proper calcium metabolism is a fat-soluble vitamin called, Vitamin K.

Now, there are different forms of vitamin K. The two main forms are K1 and K2

K1 is found mostly in plant foods, such as leafy green vegetables. It makes up about 75–90% of all vitamin K consumed by humans.

Unfortunately, it’s very poorly absorbed, less than 10%. And, it has a very short active life, which means it only has an hour or two to do its job.

Then we have K2, which has different subtypes – from Mk-4 through MK-15. Without making this long and boring, the most natural and absorbable form is MK-7

So, our goal is to increase Vitamin K2, in the form of MK-7. It’s highly absorbable and has a long active life and thus, it’s promoting healthy calcium metabolism all day long.

The #1 food that contains higher levels of MK-7 is a Japanese food made from fermented soybeans called, Natto.


If you can find this food and also like the taste of it, then try to consume about 3.5 oz or 100 grams of it daily.

Yes, it should be done almost daily and at the very least, 3x a week.

Best Option For Vitamin K

However, if you’re like most people and won’t be able to do this, then you might consider taking Vitamin K2, MK-7 in pill form.

Additionally, vitamin K2 is recommended to be taken with Vitamin D3.

This is a great combination for improving your health on so many levels, including healthy calcium metabolism and arterial health – which is what today’s topic is about.

This benefits your entire body – heart, brain, organs, immune system, skin, hair and blood flow.

Both K2 and D3 should be taken together, with food, preferably in the morning.

The optimal daily dose the research has shown is 50 MCG of K2/MK-7 with 125 MCG (5,000 units) of Vitamin D3 daily.

This is the dose I personally take myself. However, if I’m feeling tired or maybe I feel I’m getting sick, I double the dose.

I use a product called Perfect Vitamin D&K. It’s got the correct dose, it’s vegan, plant-based and it’s the most absorbable and bioavailable form.

The sooner you start, the better.

And yes, you can make improvements at any age.

So, again… it’s all about being proactive, taking action daily so you can get results and live a happier and healthier life.
