In the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition researchers recently reported that a high intake of Vitamin K can cut someone’s risk for diabetes by an astonishing 51%. The study (which was conducted over 5 years with participating senior citizens) concluded that with just a 100mcg daily intake of Vitamin K, diabetes risk diminishes. After 5 years, those people that did develop diabetes had significantly lower levels of Vitamin K. While those with the highest levels proved to be diabetes-free.
