The Natural - Vitamin K


#1

Hi Natural, Its been quite a while since I have been to this board. I hope things are going well for you. I have recently stumbled onto something and was wondering if you had any experience with vitamin K or more especially vitamin K2. I would also be interested if you have seen any discussions on this board or other sites relating to vitamin K. I need to do some more testing but I am fairly certain that vitamin K2 is definitely helping control my hair loss. I have also found some interesting research relating to vitamin K and interleukin-6 relating to the androgen receptor in prostate cancer.

Thanks,

Hogan

Hogan, I decided to add vitamin K to my regimen, after reading your post, those at IH’s site, and some online articles about its (vitamin K’s) relationship with vitamin D3.

Natural, Good luck. I have found some research that implicates menaquinone with Interleukin 6 (IL-6) a known inflammatory cytokine which I believe is also implicated with hair loss:

Also here is some research that speculates that IL-6 upregulates the Androgen Receptor in prostrate cancer:
