180DegreeHealth #7: Vitamin K2 and calcium absorption with Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue

Recently I came across the very impressive book by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue entitled, Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life. So I brought the cool K2 diva all up in this mutha. We had a great talk, discussing–to my amazement–some things that Dr. Garrett Smith and I were just discussing in our last episode together, such as how problematic calcium can be in excess if it is not being utilized correctly.

What’s vitamin K2’s role in mineral absorption? Can taking supplemental vitamin D actually be harmful in some contexts? And what the heck is “the calcium paradox?” Find out in today’s episode of the 180DegreeHealth podcast…

  1. I have very little to impart. Like I said in the conversation, I’ve always been very timid about supplementation because I knew it could playing with fire. Hopefully Dr. Kate will see this and have a chance to respond. If not, hey, thanks for the comment. If you find the answer to that question Kevin, do tell.
