How is X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil made from Green Pasture in the USA?
It is made from dairy oil extracted without heat from cows that eat 100% irrigated rapidly growing grass on the Northern Plains. The speed of the grass growth, the timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real X-Factor Gold™ High Vitamin Butter Oil that is casein and lactose-free.
Why is X-Factor mentioned in the Butter Oil Concentrate?
X-Factor Gold is made seasonally from May through October in the USA , from the milk of cows feeding on rapidly growing pasture. Rapid growth is the key to the Activator X (now known as K2) content, and irrigation and rotational grazing are the keys to constant rapid growth. This is why we have this great product available at Nourishing Ecology in Australia.
How much Cream does it take to make eight ounces of X Factor Gold Concentratd Butter Oil?
Eight to nine pounds of cream from cows grazed on grass grown from May to October in the USA.
What is Butter Concentrate from Green Pasture and what does it contain?
It is made with about 3.6 kilograms of cream and has X-Factor Gold that is rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), known to enhance muscle growth, lower insulin resistance, and support the immune system.
What is the role of Vitamin K2?
Only recently have scientists discovered Vitamin K2 (Activator X). Vitamin K2's role is to "direct" calcium into the teeth and bones. Without Vitamin K2, the body cannot direct calcium to the bones where it's needed; instead, the calcium resides in soft tissue (like the arteries)--leading to a combination of osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.
What is Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox?
Dr Kate Rheaume-Bleue, a popular health expert on Canadian television and radio, "Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox" sounds a warning about the popularity of the calcium and Vitamin D craze, while illustrating the enormous health benefits of Vitamin K2 in making the body less susceptible to dental cavities, heart disease, prostate cancer, liver cancer, diabetes, wrinkles, obesity, varicose veins, and other ailments.K2--a fat-soluble vitamin that humans once thrived on, ignored by scientists for almost seventy years!
It is important for everyone to consume K2 on a daily basis.
What is the Interplay between Vitamin K2, Vitamin D, and Calcium
Dr. Rheaume-Bleue explains:
"When you take vitamin D, your body creates more of these vitamin K2-dependent proteins, the proteins that will move the calcium around. They have a lot of potential health benefits. But until the K2 comes in to activate those proteins, those benefits aren't realized. So, really, if you're taking vitamin D, you're creating an increased demand for K2. And vitamin D and K2 work together to strengthen your bones and improve your heart health.
... For so long, we've been told to take calcium for osteoporosis... and vitamin D, which we know is helpful. But then, more studies are coming out showing that increased calcium intake is causing more heart attacks and strokes. That created a lot of confusion about whether calcium is safe or not. But that's the wrong question to be asking because we'll never properly understand the health benefits of calcium or vitamin D unless we take into consideration K2. That's what keeps the calcium in its right place."
She estimates that about 80 per cent of Americans do not get enough vitamin K2 in their diet to activate their K2 proteins, which is similar to the deficiency rate of vitamin D. Vitamin K2 deficiency leaves you vulnerable to a number of chronic diseases, including:
Heart attack and stroke
Inappropriate calcification, from heel spurs to kidney stones
