High dietary intake of Vitamin K2 reduces risk of Peripheral Arterial Disease: Study
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a circulatory condition characterized by the narrowing of blood vessels. This results in a reduction of blood flow to the periphery, especially the limbs. Symptoms of PAD differ from person to person, ranging widely from cramping, pain or tiredness in the leg or hip muscles while walking or climbing stairs. Typically, this pain subsides with rest. People with PAD are normally at a high risk to develop a stroke, coronary artery disease, or a cardiac arrest.
