    In the recent note on Vitamin K2, it said:

    "After taking the vitamin K2 I found that I was more prone to muscle cramps than before. I believe the process of removing excess calcium from the body uses up magnesium. ".

    Actually, what is happening is that K2 helps / allows the body to move calcium from the bloodstream into cells. This means that more calcium gets into the cells. Magnesium does a lot of things in the body, and one of them is to regulate how much calcium enters the cells. When extra calcium enters a muscle cell, it is more likely to cramp (contract and not relax). So, with the extra calcium available to the cells, you need more magnesium to regulate it. You can either get less calcium or add more magnesium, or both to balance out these two elements (in ionic form) in your body.

    There is more to it than that, but that's a start.

    Vitamin K2

    A lot of today's accepted nutrition information and "best practices" have no basis in science and are the obscene product of food industry self-interest and influence. Look no further than the rise in obesity and Diabetes.

    I did an extensive search of the scientific / medical literature, and as a result, I take a soft gel of Vitamin K2 (MK7) daily. I purchase it from Vitacost.

    I have yet to try the best source of vitamin K2, natto. Natto is fermented soy. I understand natto is slimy and smelly, in short, disgusting.

    Butter, cheese, and fat from grass-fed animals are sources of Vitamin K2. This statement is a general comment; it needs confirmation for each food.

    The medical community's ignorance about Vitamin K2 is shocking. Don't expect your doctor to know about it. A recent report referred to it as "Vitamin K". Vitamin K1 is central to blood clotting. Vitamin K2 plays a role in getting calcium to the right place, i.e., your teeth and bones, not the walls of your blood vessels.

    Erectile Dysfunction Diet

    Having improved my erections with vitamin K2 and magnesium, I still have issues with prostate swelling and maintaining an erection in a standing position. I believe these two issues are both symptoms of chronic inflammation. I am at the beginning stages of trying dietary changes to deal with it. This site won't allow a link to the article that I quote below:

    "Inflammation Is the Core of ED. Drug treatment to compensate for inadequate NO production is a multibillion dollar industry that avoids curing the underlying cause of the ED. All of the physiological predispositions to ED result in or derive from chronic inflammation. Recent studies also indicate that testosterone levels do not normally decline with age, but rather with declining health. Healthy men have higher testosterone levels. I would suggest that reduction in serum testosterone could be used as a measure of chronic inflammation in men.

    A chronic high starch/sugar/HFCS diet with omega-6 oils in place of saturated fats, leads to chronic inflammation, high triglycerides, risk of metabolic syndrome and obesity. Of course, diabetics have an even lower tolerance for this type of diet. This diet, which is rather typical in many modern cultures, also provides a high risk of damage to endothelial cells lining the circulatory system and to ED. The opposite of the inflammatory diet is the low carb, high omega-3 fish oil, no vegetable oil, meat/fish/dairy, Anti-Inflammatory Diet".

    The other approach I intend to try to reduce inflammation is detoxing using supplemental pectin. There has been research done on modified citrus pectin (MCP) proving it reduces body levels of toxic heavy metals. However, it is expensive. A common folk remedy for arthritis pain due to inflammation is inexpensive pectin used for making jam. It is commonly mixed with grape juice for the anti-oxidants, but I think that is counter-productive given the sugar content. Pectin is also used for detoxing the body from recreational drugs in order to pass a drug test.

    "The Certo Method or the use of fruit pectin for detoxing the system of drug metabolites has been used for a few years now and with a very high pass rate".

    "How to Mix Certo and Grape Juice for Arthritis"

    "At normal levels, galectin-3 performs important cellular functions. In fact, galectin-3 is found throughout the body: on cell surfaces, in their nuclei, in circulating blood. The trouble is, galectin-3 can become overexpressed, particularly as we age. When that happens, it becomes a highly inflammatory agent, driving the advancement of a number of conditions including cancer and cardiovascular disease.

    MCP (modified citrus pectin) has a special role to play as a natural systemic galectin-3 binder; its completely nontoxic and shows no side effects. MCP works because it has a strong affinity for galectin-3, binding to the protein and essentially inactivating it".

    Vitamin E for Erectile Dysfunction

    I tried the brand of vitamin E recommended in the following article. It didn't seem to have any specific effect for the suggested usage, but maybe it will work differently for someone else. The thing I did notice is that it enhanced the function of the vitamin K2 I had taken. At another time I had taken vitamin A in the form of retinol and found it also enhanced the effects of vitamin K2.

    "Got problems with your erections? Using vitamin E for erectile dysfunction might help. First, vitamin E lower estrogens. Decreasing estrogen has been proven to do a lot more for your morning wood than increasing testosterone, so anything that can help with that should be on your ED short list. Vitamin E also acts as an estrogen receptor antagonist, meaning that it blocks the reception of estrogen in your body, further hindering it from acting on your cells.

    Prolactin is the hormone that tells pregnant women to start producing milk. However, its present in men too and, surprise surprise, it isnt so great for your sex life. It works to lower your sex drive as well as your testosterone levels. Fortunately, vitamin E helps reduce prolactin levels in your system, quite effectively.

    Make sure you use an E supplement where the soy residues have been extracted out. To get a vitamin E product that will actually work, you want to look for one containing at least a mix of the alpha, beta, delta, and gamma tocopherols with added tocotrienols if possible".

    Vitamins For ED

    I have recently tried some vitamin and mineral supplements that have been helpful in reducing age related erectile dysfunction. My morning and spontaneous erections have improved dramatically, as has the firmness. I still have problems maintaining them without continued stimulation, especially in a standing position. There is some good information at the following link, which I quote.

    "When plaque builds up in the blood vessel walls, they begin to narrow which slows down the flow of blood. Atherosclerosis affects men in different places at different times, but the penis is often affected first. Why? Because the vessels leading into the penis are very small and narrow to begin with, so it makes sense they would become blocked before the larger vessels leading to your heart.

    So lets talk about what can be done to clear this plaque and unblock your pipes so your penis will begin working properly again. Your body uses vitamin K2 to produce a protein called matrix Gla-protein (MGP), an agent that prevents calcification of the smooth cell walls in your arteries.

    In a recent trial, mice who were deprived of this substance suffered rapid and extensive vascular calcification. Then, when they were given vitamin K2, they experienced a 40% reduction in arterial calcification".

    Vitamin K2 helps the body to put calcium in the bones and prevents it from building up in soft tissues. If deficient, supplementation can remove existing arterial plaque to improve blood circulation. There are two kinds of supplements, MK4 and MK7. The MK4 is the kind found naturally in the body and in animal food sources. MK7 is found in natto (fermented soy beans) and is produced by the bacteria. Vitamin K2 is different than regular vitamin K, which is for blood clotting. Some animals can convert vitamin K, found in green leafy foods, to vitamin K2. Grass fed cows can do this, but most cows and chickens are kept in a barn and fed grain. The result is that vitamin K2 is less common in foods today than in the past.

    Uncommon natural sources are natto (MK7) and goose liver (MK4). Commonly available natural sources are specialty cheeses (MK9) like Gouda, Brie, Blue and Edam, as well as egg yolks and butter (MK4). I tried supplements of MK4 and didn't get any results, even though taking massive doses. I think the synthetic supplements don't really match what is found in the body. There is a company called Green Pastures that sells concentrated butter oil from grass fed cows. Many people have success with that product, though I haven't tried it. It is from natural sources and it also contains other fat soluble vitamins. I had success using a supplement of MK7. I took it with meals containing fat, since vitamin K2 is fat soluble. I only took one bottle and over a year later I can tell it is still working. Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the liver for future use.

    Plaque in the arteries and on the teeth is caused by a buildup of calcium deposits. The first results I noticed were on my teeth. They seemed smoother than before. I didn't need to brush as often. Sometimes I couldn't remember if I had brushed or not, since my teeth didn't ever feel fuzzy like before. Using the teeth effect as a guide, I found that vitamins A and E seemed to work synergistically with vitamin K2.

    I believe I have been deficient in vitamin K2 for most of my life until now in my old age. When I was young I believed the cholesterol theory of heart disease, which has now been debunked. I didn't eat the high cholesterol foods that are the few natural sources of vitamin K2. As a result I have a lifetime of accumulated calcium deposits in my soft tissues. A few year back I was taking vitamin D for a short time and started getting chest pains and numbness in my left arm. Vitamin D increases calcium absorption. I quit the vitamin D and started taking magnesium supplements. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium makes muscles relax. I have always been prone to muscle cramps. The chest pain felt like cramping in my heart muscles. I was able to control the symptoms with magnesium but I wasn't solving the source of the problem. I knew magnesium was the opposite of calcium. After doing some research, I discovered that vitamin K2 was the opposite of vitamin D.

    After taking the vitamin K2 I found that I was more prone to muscle cramps than before. I believe the process of removing excess calcium from the body uses up magnesium. I read about an experiment in which calcium is stirred into a glass of water. It won't dissolve. When magnesium is added, the calcium then dissolves in the water. I think something similar happens in the body. Magnesium is stored in the muscles. When it becomes deficient, muscle cramps can occur. I use this as a guide to how much magnesium to supplement. The tooth effect is another indication. When my magnesium levels drop my teeth feel coated in fuzz and my erections are softer. Now I take large doses of magnesium every day to cope with the side effects of the vitamin K2. I believe that once I finish removing a lifetime accumulation of excess calcium this won't be necessary. There are different kinds of magnesium. Some of them are very expensive. Supposedly magnesium glycinate is better absorbed with less side effects, the most common of which is diarrhea. I have found this to not be true. I have tried many kinds of magnesium and I get the best results from inexpensive magnesium oxide. I find I get better results if I take it in small doses with food, spread throughout the day. I prefer about 200 mg in a capsule, not in a tablet. Magnesium oxide is often sold as 500 mg tablets. I could cut these in half to get the proper dose, but I prefer to pay a higher price for capsules which seem less inclined to upset my stomach. I always get more diarrhea from magnesium in tablets than in capsules, regardless the type of magnesium.

    The other side effect of vitamin K2 that I have experienced is tingling in the hands and feet. I believe the process of removing plaque from the arteries temporarily thickens the blood as the loosened plaque circulates in the arteries. When it hits a narrow point the circulation is inhibited, causing a tingling sensation. This feeling is similar to how your arm feels after cutting off the circulation from sleeping on it, then rolling over and getting the circulation back. When I first stared taking vitamin K2 MK7 I noticed the tooth effect fairly soon, but not the tingling. After about two months of taking one capsule every other day (one bottle) I noticed my arms and legs were tingling. I stopped taking the K2 and within one or two weeks only my fingers and toes were tingling. As time progressed and my large arteries were presumably cleared of plaque the process seemed to accelerate. I found all of my hands and feet were tingling. Now over a year later it seems to be moving into my calves and forearms. Although annoying, I take this as a sign that the process is accelerating and nearing completion. As the large arteries are cleared of plaque, the inside diameter increases, exposing more surface area for plaque removal.

    I no longer get the chest pains that occurred when I took vitamin D. I think the vitamin K2 and magnesium have prevented me from having a heart attack. For more information on vitamin K2 I suggest you read the book "Vitamin K2 And The Calcium Paradox" by Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue. If you prefer a video, there is a free one online at:
