Ever had a kidney stone? I thought I was going to die!
Since I’m not very good at measuring daily exercise or salt and sugar amounts, I stick my responses to suggesting that you drink more water, take calcium and potassium. AND DON'T FORGET THE VITAMIN K2 (MK-7).
A recent Mayo Clinic study finds, “Diets higher in calcium and potassium may help prevent recurrent symptomatic kidney stones…”
“Vitamin K2 activates a protein called matrix GLA which removes calcium from soft tissues, and it also activates osteocalcin, which holds calcium to bone. So, if you have a lot of calcium, you need vitamin K2 to direct it. Think of parking attendants at large events; they tell you where to put your car. K2 tells you where to put calcium. When it comes to calcium, where it ends up is what counts, not how much you have.”
Load up on calcium (1,200 mg per day), potassium, and Vitamin K2 (300 mcg of MK-7.
Want to absorb even more calcium correctly? Take it with Vitamin D.
