Vitamin K2 Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer

By Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy, Health Coach - May 30, 2009

  • Surprisingly, Vitamin K2 from meat and dairy products lower the risk of developing prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer Vitamin: Vitamin K2 reduces risk of prostate cancer.Researchers studied the risk of total and advanced prostate cancer in relation to intakes of phylloquinone (vitamin K1) and menaquinone (vitamin K2) in 11,319 men. During a follow-up time of 8.6 years these men had 268 incidents of prostate cancer, including 113 advanced cases.

Men with high menaquinone intake had a lower risk of prostate cancer and advanced prostate cancer. Vitamin K2 from dairy products provided better cancer prevention than vitamin K2 from meat. Vitamin K1 from vegetable intake was unrelated to prostate cancer.[1]

Food sources of Vitamin K2 include meat, egg yolk, natto, cheese and curd cheese. Plant sources of vitamin K1 include dark green leafy vegetables.

This study is suggesting that fatty animal foods may decrease the risk of prostate cancer.

But, don’t give up on the dark green vegetables!

Broccoli decreases the risk of aggressive prostate cancer[2].  I recommend a moderate amount of animal food products, large amounts of broccoli and vegetables and taking a dietary supplement of Vitamin K2.

Laboratory research and animal research confirm the benefits of Vitamin K2 in preventing and killing prostate cancer cells.[3]
