Dr. Westin A. Price and the benefits of Vitamin K2, "Activator X"
Although Dr. Westin A. Price passed long ago, his research on and theories about the relationships between good nutrition, bone development and teeth have withstood the test of time. Recent research on Vitamin K2 has confirmed Dr. Prices findings, namely that it is a vital nutrient for good health. He discovered there are many benefits of Vitamin K2 including:
- Supports heart health
- Protects teeth from decay
- Crucial for proper mineral utilization
- Supports the body's growth and development
- Is part of normal reproduction
- Helps protect arteries from calcification
- Supports bone health
- Is an important component of the brain
At the turn of last century, Dr. Price discovered that some nutrient was vital to how well our bodies used Vitamins A and D, two other nutrients he spent a lot of time researching. He called this nutrient Activator X, or his X Factor. It was thusly named because it activates certain proteins that Vitamins A & D are responsible for creating. Essentially, it helps these and other vitamins work better. It was later discovered that Dr. Price's Activator X was actually Vitamin K2.
