eart-Healthy Ingredients Can Spell Big Savings : CRN Report

The CRN report notes all four ingredient categoriesomega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, vitamin K2, and soluble fibers have significant research backing, so much so that three of them have achieved FDA-approved qualified health claims. While considered a « latecomer,» the report notes persuasive evidence is piling up for the vitamin K2’s effects in suppressing the development of arterial plaques.
