This talk covers the latest advances in our understanding of how the fat-soluble vitamins should be balanced. While I have spoken many times in the past about the cooperation between vitamins A, D, and K2, newer research has made it clear that any of the four fat-soluble vitamins ? A, D, E, and K ? can lead to the degradation of the others when provided out of balance. This calls for greater attention to vitamin E, to vitamin K1, and to the different effects of the various forms of vitamin K2. It is important to understand that there is no one single ratio that can be applied to everyone. Genetic predispositions and health circumstances can often increase the need for one of the nutrients without necessarily requiring the others in a constant ratio. This talk will cover the ways these nutrients cooperate with one another as well as how megadosing one without the rest can cause imbalances, and will make practical suggestions about how to balance them in different situations.
