Can Emu Oil Really Save Someone’s Life?
Do you know a loved one being prescribed huge tablets of Calcium in the hundreds for the supplementation?
Have you ever followed through to find out how the Calcium tablets actually helped as hoped?
The sad truth is that lots of people take Calcium and Vitamin D supplements to help their bones, however, without the addition of Vitamin K2, such a health regimen may not be helpful but can prove to be dangerous. In fact, what is known as the calcium paradox is when one load up on Calcium supplements, excess calcium accumulates in the arteries while a lack of it persists in the bones. Build up of calcium in the heart’s arteries increases the risk for heart disease, heart attack or stroke.
The underlying reason: Vitamin K2 deficiency. The body cannot direct calcium to the bones without Vitamin K2 but resides in soft tissue eg. the arteries leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis. Vitamin K2 refers to a collection of MKs, MK-4 which is abundant in animal foods, while MK-7,MK-8,MK-9 in fermented foods.

Vitamin K2 in Emu Oil
Emu Oil has been recently discovered via testing to contain almost as much MK-4 (vitamin K2) per 100 grams as the second richest source of vitamin K2 after the traditional Japanese dish Natto, made of fermented soybeans. However, the intense smell and taste of Natto make this soy food an undesirable source of natural vitamin K2.
Only a specific genotype of emus found in Australia contains the most biologically active Emu Oil loaded with vitamin K2, the potent MK-4. All emus outside of Australia are interbred and do not contain this special gene. Moreover, the Australian farmed emus are regulated. They must not be fed GMO feed, antibiotics, growth hormones or chemicals of any kind. And they must be free range and reproduce in their natural habitat eating their natural diet.
Due to this strict farming regime, the Australian emu fat accumulates large amounts of vitamin K2. During mating season, the male emu sits to hatch their cluster of eggs for 56 days without food or water intake, not even have a bowel movement during this period. All hibernating animals accumulate this type of vitamin K2 rich fat, however, only the Australian emu is able to provide this nutrient rich oil on a commercial basis.
Emu Tracks Bio-Active Emu Oil is available in capsules and liquid form. The Emu Oil in liquid form is best used externally and is beneficial for many skin related ailments. The capsules are best consumed as a vitamin K2 supplement, which contains 360mcg per 100 grams.
