Homecoming 2019 - Protect Arteries and Prevent Heart Dis-function



September 3, 2018 Puzzle Piece

1. Vitamin D

OPTIMAL-LONGEVI-D K2 (Vitamin D-K2—CoQ10 Ubiquinol)

Vitamin D is a prohormone.  It promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany. It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts and osteoclasts.  Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.

Vitamin D has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation.  Many genes encode proteins that regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. which are modulated in part by vitamin D. Many cells have vitamin D receptors, and some convert 25(OH)D to 1,25(OH)2D.

2. Maintain strong arteries with the “forgotten” vitamin K. Most people forget about vitamin K. But it’s essential for proper blood flow and clear arteries. 

In a study involving nearly 6,000 people, blood pressure decreased with vitamin K intake. Vitamin K was also found to maintain vascular health and arterial elasticity.1 

There are two types of vitamin K — K1 and K2. Vitamin K1 is used by the liver to activate blood-clotting proteins — it also keeps your blood vessels from calcifying.

You’ll find vitamin K1 in broccoli and Brussels sprouts, in green, leafy vegetables like kale, spinach and Swiss chard, and in spices like basil and sage. Parsley is another good source of vitamin K1. Fruit and Veggies Plus.

Note: If you’re taking a blood-thinning agent like Coumadin, talk to your doctor first. The blood-clotting benefits of vitamin K can interfere with this drug. Newer blood-thinning drugs like Eliquis are not affected by vitamin K.

3. K2 – In the form of MK-7 is necessary for vitamin D to work properly. D without K2 can create deficiencies.  Research demonstrates K2 prevents calcium build up in the arteries and allows proper calcium in the bones.  Current research also shows that 97% of the US population are deficient in K2.  It is being taunted at possibly the most important, unknown, vitamin in the world.  Studies have shown it to prolong life up to 7 years.   The source of K2 is critical as the MK-7 is a natural form from food.  OHS Nutritionals are from natural whole food sources.

4. CoQ10 Ubiquinol - CoQ10 was discovered in 1957, but it was known by a different name, Ubiquinone, which refers to it being ubiquitous, or needed in every cell and tissue of the body.  Every cell uses this “spark plug” nutrient to ignite cellular energy.  Most companies sell it in the less expensive form, ubiquinone, which must be reduced to the usable form of ubiquinol.  If the body has a genetic SNP or vitamin deficiency, the conversion cannot take place and you have produced illness, not wellness.

The proper use of the B vitamins is better than any heart drug according to many researchers. 


Many of the B’s are necessary for nerve, heart and blood vascular health. They are found in their usable methylated form In Opti-Methyl B.  Let’s look at B9 specifically in this discussion.  You probably know vitamin B9 better as folate or folic acid. Folate is the nutrient found in food, while folic acid is the supplement form. 

Folic acid lowers levels of toxic substances that irritate the heart’s lining. This relaxes your blood vessels and keeps them flexible. Less irritations equates to normalized pulse and blood pressure. woth a reduction in stroke and heart attack. 

Simply put, when folate is high your risk of heart attack drops by up to 50%.

Natural sources of folate are dark green vegetables as well as beef, lamb, chicken liver and eggs. But your body only absorbs half the folate you get from food.  So OHS furnishes B9 in Fruits and Veggies, Opti-Methyl B and in small amounts in the whole food cultured blend, found in most of the OHS line.

Nutritionist, formulator and trainer Doug Grant, Dr. Marc Harris, Dr Patrick Porter, Drs. Brett/ John Brimhall, Dr. Smaldone, Dr. Harper and Dr. Curtis Turchin will cover almost all aspects of nutrition, as well as the rest of the Six Steps to Wellness and your health at Homecoming 2019.
