Vitamin K


Vitamin K is Good For


lettuceVitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it is absorbed most effectively when ingested with dietary fat. It is best known for its role in helping blood clot properly after an injury. Vitamin K is helpful in this situation because it is responsible for making clotting factors in the liver. Vitamin K also plays an important role in bone health.  


Sources of Vitamin K


Foods that contain a significant amount of vitamin K include beef liver, green tea, turnip greens, broccoli, kale, spinach, cabbage, asparagus, and dark green lettuce. Chlorophyll, which is water soluble, is the substance in plants that gives them their green color and provides
vitamin K.

Vitamin K Deficiencies


Vitamin K deficiency is rare because gut bacteria can produce enough of this vitamin, even if dietary intake is low. Vitamin K deficiency can lead to excessive bleeding which may begin as oozing from the gums or nose. Echymoses (bleeding below the skin) and excessive bruising may also be symptoms of vitamin K deficiency.
