Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very short book, less than 80 pages - which makes it an expensive pamphlet. It contains good information on the MK-7 form of Vitamin K2, but not much you couldn't find yourself. The reference section is of value in pointing the reader to related research. However it's problematic that the references are simply listed in alphabetical order and not linked to actual statements made in the book.

Two things bother me about this book. The first is an assertion that MK-7 may be a better than MK-4 for osteoporosis treatment. The book correctly states that it's the MK-4 form of Vitamin K2 that is approved by the Japanese Ministry of Health for treatment of Osteoporosis. They actually prescribe it for osteoporosis in Japan like we do bisphosphonates (like Fosamax) here in the US. It's called Glakay in Japan and is made by a company called Esai. It's 15mg of Vitamin K2 MK-4 taken 3 times per day. (There are studies from Japan you can find online on this topic, and comparing K2 MK-4 to the bisphosphonate drugs we use here with similar results in retarding bone loss but without the side effects of bisphosphonates.) But then the authors state that "recent studies" are now pointing to MK-7 "as an even more appropriate therapy for osteoporosis." Which recent studies would those be? There's no additional information.

The second thing that bothers me are the authors' credentials. The back cover says "Anthony G. Payne, Ph.D. is a staff biological theoretician and senior science writer at the Steenblock Research Institute." If you Google that institute (or Dr. Steenblock himself) you'll find it listed on Quackwatch, among others, but no url turns up for the institute. Then there's the university Dr. Payne graduated from: Aksem Oriental Medical School in Manila, Philippines.

Format: Paperback
Another reviewer has already expressed concerns about the authors' credentials as well as the lack of research details to back up many of the claims in this thin book (less than half of which is actually about K2), concerns that I echo.

It's actually worse than this as it's peppered with errors: the book states in more than one place that we all get enough vitamin D, for instance.(Vitamin D works synergistically with K2.) That's just not true. There's been a huge amount of research over the last 20 years (and more) showing worsening levels of health the further north we live. It is also now well-known that very few people living north of parallel 40 get enough vitamin D (that's anywhere north of Kansas).

A far better book is "Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox" by Kate Rheaume-Bleue; better researched and well-written in a friendly, clear and organized way. It explains how taking calcium and/or vitamin D can kill you if you don't also supplement with K2 - and much more.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book with up to date information on the benefits of both dietary and supplemental use of Vitamin K2. Of particular note were the extended strategies in the of prevention and treatment of both heart disease and age-related bone loss, beyond the use of common methods such as surgery and drugs. Overall authors Larry Howard and Anthony Payne have done a fantastic job relaying the most recent scientific data on K2 and applying it in terms that the layman can understand. Recommend for those interested in improving their health and knowledge of natural therapies. I would gladly read this again.
