Each and every day, your blood pumps through 100,000 miles of arteries, veins and capillaries. The diameter of your veins and arteries affects the rate of blood flow and the amount of pressure needed to pass through your arteries. The bigger the opening, the less pressure is needed.
So what do you think happens when those blood vessels get lined with layers and layers of calcium plaque deposits?
You guessed it! The pathway narrows and your blood literally has to squeeze through those arteries and veins—causing your blood pressure to skyrocket.
Now, imagine a simple nutrient that can quickly help remove calcium from your blood vessels and keep them wide open for healthy blood flow.
It's called Vitamin K2. And here's why it's the first part of my three-step program for healthy blood pressure.

In fact, vitamin K2 acts like a shuttle bus. It moves unwanted calcium out of your arteries and delivers that calcium to your bones—where it's needed for bone health! Numerous studies show the amazing power of vitamin K2. For example...
