Vitamin K

What is Vitamin K? What are the benefits of Vitamin K?

There are two natural types of vitamin K, K1 and K2, which collectively contribute to normal blood clotting and healthy bones.

K1 is required for the production of prothrombin, an enzyme needed for healthy blood clotting whilst K2 contributes to the promotion of bone formation and repair by helping to create bone tissue protein.

Vitamin K also plays a role in the conversion of glucose into glycogen which then stores in the liver, meaning it contributes to both healthy blood sugar balance as well as liver health.

What is Vitamin K found in?

K1: Green leafy vegetables, Chlorella, beans.

K2: Animal fats, meat, fish, eggs

K2 Deficiency

Deficiency of K2 is rare but can manifest as issue with blood clotting including delayed clotting, nosebleeds and easy bruising.
