Why are some cultures and groups of people so much healthier than others? Why do some cultures and types of diets lead to high levels of heart disease, cancer, and other diseases, while others - all humans living on the same planet - have very low levels of the same diseases?
In Search of Answers...
Dr. Weston Price, a Cleveland dentist in the 1920s, set out to find the answer. Dr. Price traveled the world and meticulously studied many different cultures and groups of people, but what he was really studying was their diet.
His journey stretched over 100,000 miles and took him everywhere from island communities off of Scotland to the Eskimos of North America, down to primitive tribes in Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and many others.
He was fascinated by the fact that while the improvements of "modern life" made some things more convenient, it seemed that the large populations in the United States and Europe were seeing more and more diet-related diseases, while "primitive" groups of people had very low levels of disease and obesity and seemed to be much healthier.
There Seemed to Be a "Secret Vitamin"...
What Dr. Price noticed was that even though most of these "healthy" groups of people ate completely different types of foods, there were a small number of overlapping types of foods, and that is what he focused on.
The one thing these cultures had in common was that they ate foods that were high in fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin A and vitamin D. But there was one vitamin that at the time Dr. Price couldn't identify, yet it seemed to be the "missing link" among these different cultures. This vitamin seemed so crucial that Dr. Price referred to it as the "X factor."
Now, more than 100 years later, we now know the vitamin in question was Vitamin K2.
Dr. Weston Price, who traveled the world studying the healthiest groups of people, concluded there was a mystery vitamin that the healthiest groups all had in common, which he called the "X factor". That vitamin is now known to be vitamin K2.(in fact, the researcher who discovered Vitamin K won the Nobel Prize for the discovery)
The best natural sources of vitamin K2 is found in high-fat animal products such as egg yolks, butter, organ meats, and shellfish. It's fine to enjoy those foods in moderation, but to get a consistent daily dose of vitamin K2 +D3 without the high calorie foods, try TrimCell!
TrimCell provides 5000 IU of vitamin D3, 100 mcg of vitamin K2, 210 mg of calcium, and 5 mg of BioPerine, which dramatically boosts the absorption rates of the vitamins.
The truth is, vitamin D should always be taken with vitamin K2, because they each unlock the maximum effects of the other1. Most people know the benefits of vitamin D like stronger bones and muscle function, but vitamin K2 makes calcium absorption much easier for vitamin D3, and directs the calcium to your bones instead of calcifying arteries and blood vessels.
In one 7-year study, it was found that the people with the highest consumption levels of vitamin K2 had a 57% lower risk of dying from heart disease2.
Another study showed that the people with the highest vitamin K2 intake had a much lower risk of heart disease, and that for every 10mcg of K2 they consumed a day, there was a 9% reduction in the risk of heart disease3. (TrimCell contains 100mcg of K2 per dose)
INTRODUCING THE "X-FACTOR":
The K2+D3 combination (with much better absorption thanks to BioPerine) is dramatically more effective for your long-term bone, muscle, and cellular health than vitamin D3 alone.
Just take 2 capsules daily provides the maximum benefits of vitamin D3 & K2... without having to eat organ meats!
