Ovarian cancer – 30 is the minimum.

MS – 48 ng ml is the minimum.

Serum target should be 60 – don’t go lower than that.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is a potential cancer fighter. A  high dietary intake of K2 may help reduce the risk of cancer–particularly prostate and lung cancers. In a recent study from the Mayo Clinic that included about 600 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients and 1,000 healthy control subjects, those with the highest dietary intake of vitamin K1 were 45 percent less likely to have the disease.

Many subjects with the highest intake also used supplements that contained vitamin K.

Dark leafy green vegetables, cauliflower, broccoli, olive oil, and avocados are all rich in vitamin K1, which is converted into K2 in the intestine. Dietary K2 is mostly found in liver and egg yolk, and fermented products such as yogurt and cheese. 

The lead author told Science Daily, “These findings add to a lot of other data that support a diet that includes plenty of green leafy vegetables in order to prevent many cancers as well as other diseases.”


Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea has these healthy benefits:
Green tea has been shown to curb some cancers
Green tea helps control blood pressure
Green tea may reduce brain plaques typical of Alzheimer’s patients
Research shows that EGCG (a catechin) is the component of green tea that makes all those benefits possible.

Celepro from Metagenics has 300 mg of Green Tea Leaf Extract in each capsule.
