Industry stakeholders gathered Nov. 6 for The Workshop: CRN’s Day of Science, filled with sessions examining healthy aging and advances in nutrition research tools. Experts discuss what it means to age well and the indispensable role of nutrition. Event took place at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, California.
Katarzyna Maresz, Ph.D., president of International Science and Health Foundation, discussed how supplementation with vitamin K2, shown to simultaneously protect cardiovascular health while supporting bone health, could address some of the most widespread public health issues. Presentation entitled: “The role of vitamin K2 in bone and cardiovascular health through the life cycle”
She noted the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that millions of people are vulnerable to poor bone metabolism, making both women and men susceptible to life-threatening fractures. In addition, heart disease remains the number one global cause of death, with 17.3 million deaths each year. Maintaining the best possible cardiovascular and bone health are two of the most critical areas allowing individuals to age in a healthy way, Dr. Maresz observed, noting that laying the foundation for healthy aging begins in childhood.
Event was organized by Romanian Society of Osteoporosis and Muscle-Skeletal Disorders (SROBMS). Dr Katarzyna Maresz, President of International Science and Health Foundation presented the latest research results on the subject Vitamin K2: ”Vitamina K2 (menaquinone 7) as necessary nutrient for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis (cu sprijinul Punta Pharm)”.
