Postmenopausal women need more butter and egg yolks. Why? Because they’re at risk for osteoporosis and osteopenia. Their hormones have shifted, and they’re in a situation where they need to build bone. 

Most postmenopausal women go straight for the calcium supplements, like calcium carbonate, to build bone. But this is a mistake. This could potentially increase the risk of heart attacks. The vitamin they may really need more of is vitamin K2. It’s also important not to go on a low-fat diet. 

Great sources of vitamin K2:

• Grass-fed butter 

• Egg yolks

• Organ meats 

• Cheese 

• Dark chicken meat 

• Fish eggs

• Natto 

• Breast milk 

• Lard

• Tallow

• It decreases calcification in the arteries

• It can support healthy blood sugar levels 

• It can decrease the risk of kidney stones 

• It can decrease the risk of cancer 

• It can decrease the risk of dementia
