Cut Diabetes Risk in Half with This Vitamin

In All Health Watch, Diabetes, Featured Article by INH Research7 Comments

New research shows you can cut your risk of diabetes by 51 percent. All you have to do is up your intake of a single, easy-to-get vitamin.1

Spanish researchers published their findings in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. They reviewed data on over 1,000 men and women around 67 years old. At the start, no one had diabetes. Five-and-a-half years later, 131 people had developed diabetes. The people who developed the disease had significantly lower levels of this vitamin at the start of the study.

They concluded that for every 100 mcg per day increase in the intake of this vitamin, people decreased their risk of diabetes by 17 percent. And the people who had the highest average intake of the vitamin had a 51 percent reduced risk.

What vitamin may cut your diabetes risk in half?

Vitamin K.

A Dutch study found similar results. Researchers followed 38,000 people.2 The subjects were between the ages of 20 and 70. At the start of the study, researchers checked levels of vitamin K. Ten years later, 918 people had developed diabetes. Like the previous study, researchers also made adjustments for risk and dietary factors. And again, an increased vitamin K intake helped prevent diabetes. Those with the highest level of vitamin K showed a 20 percent decreased risk.

But how does it work? Studies have found that high levels of vitamin K reduce insulin resistance. It also helps control glycemic status.3 Both are key factors in diabetes.

Vitamin K has proven to be a valuable nutrient for people at risk for diabetes. As well as for those with diabetes.

There are two natural forms of vitamin K – vitamin K1 and vitamin K2.

Green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and Swiss chard are great sources of vitamin K1.4 You can also find vitamin K1 in cruciferous vegetables including Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Meat and eggs contain vitamin K2. But both forms of the vitamin are about equally as effective.

Your best bet is to get vitamin K through food. No supplement needed. There are no adverse effects for having higher vitamin K levels than normal. And you don’t have to worry about toxicity.

  1. It is utterly childish to structure your emails like a B whodunnit. Your articles may or may not be good. But I see no reason at all why you ALWAYS go to the point of revealing the salient detail and demand we read on to see that the thing you are talking about is “vitamin Z which studies have show to stop your big toe from falling off”. You can save the “drama?” Write what you want. Start at the beginning, go to the end, then shut up. You pad and waffle. Get on with it. Tell us the advantages of a given vitamin, mineral etc. Get rid of the “this mineral can”, “that vitamin does”. Put up or shut up.

  5. All forms of diabetes have been treatable since insulin became available in 1921, and type 2 diabetes may be controlled with medications. Insulin and some oral medications can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugars), which can be dangerous if severe. Both types 1 and 2 are chronic conditions that cannot be cured. Pancreas transplants have been tried with limited success in type 1 DM; gastric bypass surgery has been successful in many with morbid obesity and type 2 DM. Gestational diabetes usually resolves after delivery.-:
