Vitamin K

Vitamin K:

vitamin kVitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays a vital role in blood clotting, bone health, and certain other bodily functions. It exists in several forms, including vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and vitamin K2 (menaquinone), each with its own sources and functions.

Blood Clotting:

One of the primary functions of vitamin K is its involvement in the blood clotting process. It helps activate certain proteins involved in coagulation, which prevents excessive bleeding when you get injured.

Bone Health:

Vitamin K is also important for bone health as it aids in the synthesis of proteins that regulate calcium in the body. It helps activate osteocalcin, a protein necessary for the mineralization of bones.

Cardiovascular Health:

Emerging research suggests that vitamin K may have a role in promoting cardiovascular health. It may help prevent the calcification of arteries by regulating calcium metabolism.


The main dietary sources of vitamin K1 are green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. Vitamin K2, on the other hand, is synthesized by certain bacteria and can be found in fermented foods, cheese, eggs, and meats.

Absorption and Deficiency:

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning it is absorbed along with dietary fats. It is stored in the liver and fatty tissues. Deficiency is relatively rare but can occur in conditions that affect fat absorption, prolonged antibiotic use, or liver disease. Symptoms of vitamin K deficiency may include easy bruising, bleeding gums, and excessive bleeding.

Recommended Intake:

The recommended daily intake of vitamin K varies based on age and gender. For adults, the adequate intake (AI) is 90-120 micrograms per day. However, specific requirements may vary for individuals with certain health conditions or undergoing specific treatments.

Interactions and Precautions:

Vitamin K can interact with certain medications, such as anticoagulants (blood thinners), affecting their effectiveness. It’s important to consult a healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your vitamin K intake, especially if you’re taking medication.

As always, it’s best to obtain essential nutrients through a balanced diet. If you have specific concerns or questions about your vitamin K levels, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
