Have Trouble Getting Around? Try THIS!

One of the CURSES of aging is that getting around becomes harder and harder. 

One day, you get tired walking around the block… and before you know it, just climbing the stairs to go to bed at night leaves you winded.   

But frustrating as it may be, you’re not alone. 

Research estimates that roughly 30 percent of older folks struggle with limited mobility, a.k.a. trouble walking and climbing stairs… 

And mainstream doctors aren’t any help.   

They’ll tell you it’s just a part of getting older… or worse, they’ll BLAME you for not exercising more…   

But what if I told you that your mobility issues AREN’T all about your age?  

Boston researchers have just uncovered a link between low levels of one common vitamin and trouble walking and climbing stairs… 

But here’s the good news… 

You can easily UP your levels and REDUCE your risk of impairment! 

I’m talking about vitamin K. 

Vitamin K1, or phylloquinone, is the main dietary form, and it largely comes from leafy greens…   

And in an all-new study, published in The Journals of Gerontology: Series A, scientists examined the relationship between vitamin K and mobility disability by analyzing data from men and women aged 70 to 79 years.   

This study assessed mobility every six months for up to 10 years, with researchers focusing on two forms of impairment, mobility limitation and mobility disability. 

Mobility limitation included participants with “any amount of difficulty either with walking a quarter mile or climbing 10 steps without rest,” while mobility disability included participants that reported “a lot of difficulty or inability” with the same tasks. 

The results were clear… 

Participants with low levels of phylloquinone (vitamin K1) were almost TWICE AS LIKELY to have mobility disability compared to those with adequate levels! 

They were also about 1.5 times more likely to develop mobility limitation… 

And while researchers haven’t yet identified WHY proper amounts of vitamin K may keep us spry and make stairs a little less daunting, their results make sense. 

Research has previously linked low levels of the vitamin to long-term conditions such as osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease, both of which affect our mobility… and still other studies suggest that higher levels of vitamin K can improve bone health and fend off heart issues. 

The best way to benefit from vitamin K is by making sure you are getting enough through your diet. 

In other words, eat your green vegetables!  

Kale, parsley, collard greens, cruciferous veggies, raw spinach, soybean, and canola oils all include substantial amounts of vitamin K… so eat up! 

You can also take vitamin K supplements, but use caution. 

Vitamin K can interact with some common medications, including blood-thinners, cholesterol-lowering drugs, antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and even weight-loss drugs. Talk with your doctor before supplementing.
