OK, so maybe I'm really late in discovering this, but back in 2008 Tufts University published a study showing that Vitamin K is critical in reducing insulin resistance.
Is this common knowledge out there? I'm a little bit surprised that it hasn't come up more as a topic here.
Here's what the researchers wrote about their study:
"Vitamin K slowed the development of insulin resistance … In addition to improved insulin resistance, the supplemented men had lower blood insulin levels compared to the unsupplemented men at the conclusion of the study."
The authors also pointed out:
"Although vitamin K supplements were used for the study, the authors say the study dosage is attainable by consuming a healthy diet. Foods considered good sources of vitamin K include brussels sprouts, broccoli, and dark, leafy greens, such as spinach and collards."
Here's the link to the original announcement about the study if you'd like to read more: http://news.tufts.edu/releases/release.php?id=71
Has anyone been focused on getting more vitamin K in their diet? Have you seen any good results?
