The Surprising Secret to Beautiful, Healthy Skin

How one little-known nutrient can smooth fine lines and keep your complexion beautiful.

Have you ever spent money on creams and lotions to keep your face looking fresh… only to be let down by the appearance of more wrinkles and tired, “old-looking” skin?

We all want our skin to look youthful, but not everyone is willing to go to extremes to make it happen. After all, plastic surgery is expensive and potentially dangerous, and Botox is quite literally a toxin that gets injected near your brain. 

Still, looking your best makes you feel more confident and in charge of your life... So wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way to minimize wrinkles and maximize your beautiful skin without blowing your bank account?… A way that would keep you safe from harmful side effects… and even improve your overall health?

As it turns out, the answer to achieving a youthful and vibrant complexion may lie in a powerful, but little-known nutrient that can help your skin look and feel younger from the inside out.

Two Beauty Proteins, One Big Problem

Vibrant, healthy skin depends on two important proteins: collagen and elastin.[1]

Collagen keeps your skin strong, smooth, and firm. It also increases your skin’s hydration, for that youthful, dewy glow.

Elastin provides flexibility to your skin, keeping it supple and elastic. So when your skin gets pinched or wrinkled, elastin smooths it back out.

Collagen and elastin work together to help you put your best face forward every day. But as you age, those proteins lose some of their function. Worse, they can become calcified, or hardened.[2] And when that happens, your skin can’t be smooth, strong, or elastic. Instead, your skin starts to age prematurely, and wrinkles start to take up permanent residence.

Unless, of course, you get to the source of the calcification problem—too much calcium going where it doesn’t belong.


Unlocking Healthy Skin Means Helping Calcium Get To Where It Belongs

Your body relies on hundreds of proteins and enzymes to keep your cells, tissues, and organs functioning properly. And the lion’s share of those proteins can’t perform without an oft-overlooked power nutrient known as vitamin K2.

Vitamin K2’s main job is to activate the most important proteins and enzymes that keep your body running smoothly.[3]

And one of its most critical jobs is directing calcium into your bones and teeth… and away from soft tissue like blood vessels and skin.[4] Without K2 telling it where to go, calcium ends up in those soft tissues and hardens them—a process called calcification. That can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other dangerous health problems.

But K2’s benefits don’t end with helping you sidestep calcification…

The Many Benefits of Vitamin K2

For a little-known vitamin, K2 offers an impressive list of critical health benefits.[5] Along with keeping your skin young, smooth, and gorgeous, vitamin K2 helps:

  • Preserve bone density and address bone loss[6]
  • Manage blood sugar[7]
  • Encourage peak heart function[8]
  • Improve memory and cognition[9]
  • Regulate vitamin D[10]
  • Maintain healthy body mass[11]

Plus research shows that getting plenty of vitamin K2 can help you live a long, healthy life.[12]

Sources of Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 can be taken naturally or as a dietary supplement, with a recommended daily intake of 320 mcg. Although that’s a fairly low amount, there’s no danger of having an excess of vitamin K2, because your body will quickly break down and excrete any amount that it doesn’t need.

Food Sources

These are the most potent dietary sources of K2 (based on 100-gram servings unless otherwise indicated).

  • Natto (fermented soybeans): 108 micrograms
  • Eel: 63 micrograms
  • Muenster cheese: 100 micrograms
  • Camembert cheese: 68 micrograms
  • Edam and aged Gouda cheese: 63 micrograms
  • Cheddar cheese: 24 micrograms
  • Organ meat, such as beef liver: 11 micrograms
  • Chicken: 10 micrograms
  • Butter: 2.1 micrograms per tablespoon
  • Sauerkraut: 2.75 micrograms per half-cup
  • Egg yolks: between 67 and 192 micrograms per yolk (depending on the hen’s diet)

K2 Supplements

The list of foods that contain enough K2 isn’t very long, and some of these foods are an acquired taste not common to the standard Western diet. The most commonly eaten food, cheese, is high in fat and not recommended in high enough amounts to function as your only source of vitamin K2. And, if you need or prefer a diet without animal products, natto and sauerkraut would be your only options.

Because of these limitations, vitamin K2 is often recommended through supplementation.

Additionally, when there’s a deficiency (and it’s estimated that 97% of Westerners are K2 deficient), supplements are an easy and effective way to get vitamin K2 levels back to where they need to be to promote your overall health. However, there are a few disclaimers about taking supplements:

  • Only buy from reputable companies that put all of the necessary nutritional information on their labels.
  • Concentration levels can vary, so choose your supplements carefully and be sure that you are getting the right dosage (320 mcg is optimal).
  • Look for Pharmaceutical Grade products; these are guaranteed to be at minimum 99% pure.
  • When it comes to K2 supplements, stability is a big issue. Many K2 supplements deteriorate quickly on the shelf. Look for products formulated with MenaquinGold™, which ensures maximum stability.

One additional note:

Vitamin K2 comes in many different forms, ranging from K2-4 through K2-13.[13] The most natural, absorbable, and effective form is vitamin MK-7 (aka K2-7). That’s the one you want to prevent elastin and collagen from getting calcified… so your skin can look young and healthy every day.
