What is Vitamin K


What is Vitamin K

Vitamin K — derived from the German word koagulation — primarily helps with proper blood clotting (or coagulation), which prevents excessive bleeding.123

It’s also important for bone density and overall bone health, and cell growth.4

  • Best Sources of Vitamin K — Think GREEN LEAFY VEGGIES. Kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, spinach, endive, watercress, broccoli raab, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts all pack massive levels of vitamin K.5
  • Recommended Daily Intake — Men = 120 mcg/day; women = 90 mcg/day.6
  • Vitamin K Deficiency — Bruising and bleeding, osteoporosis.
