In this video, we’re going to talk about pseudogout, knee pain, and vitamin K2. If you have knee pain, it could be a pseudogout situation.

Gout is a build-up of uric acid. This happens because the kidney is not able to get rid of uric acid. When this builds up, it can cause a lot of problems, including kidney stones and gout. One of the best ways to get rid of gout is to take potassium citrate, which acidifies your urine.

You also want to avoid foods that turn into uric acid, including:
• Beer
• Organ meats
• Veal
• Turkey
• Sardines
• Fructose

While on a keto and intermittent fasting plan, you may have higher levels of uric acid. Potassium citrate is effective at combating this.

Pseudogout is different from gout—it’s actually a build-up of calcium pyrophosphate crystals (CPPD). This type of gout can also be very, very painful. It primarily targets the knees and the wrists.

The best remedy for pseudogout and knee pain is vitamin K2. 200 mcg tends to do the trick. Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes from foods that are high in fat, including beef liver, eggs, and cheese. This is why you shouldn’t go on a low-fat diet.

Vitamin K2 helps prevent calcium build up in soft tissues—and other places it shouldn’t be, like the cardiovascular system—and puts the calcium in the bone.

Vitamin K2 and D3 work fantastic together for bone and joint health and reducing inflammation.
