Vitamin K Info
Vitamin K was first identified as a vital blood coagulating factor and named for the German word ‘Koagulationsvitamin’. Vitamin K is actually a group of fat soluble vitamins. In its natural state vitamin K is found as either K1 produced by plants, or a range of K2 forms produced by bacteria in the small intestine. These naturally produced forms are non-toxic, while K3 (menadione), one of several synthetic forms, can be toxic.
Antibiotic use can severely reduce vitamin K production in the gut. Low dietary vitamin K and reduced intestinal production due to aging processes can also decrease the body’s vitamin K levels.
Vitamin K Benefits
Vitamin K helps the blood to clot. A deficiency leads to haemorrhaging and blood loss. It is current practice in New Zealand for all newborns to be given an intramuscular injection of vitamin K as a prophylactic prevention of VKDB (vitamin K deficiency bleeding).
Vitamin K also has a specific role in calcium absorption, and prevention of calcium plaquing in blood vessels. It is essential for proper matrix GLA activity, which is the mechanism that stops calcium attaching to soft tissue and blood vessel walls, and instead helps it reach the cells.
Vitamin K Side Effects
After many years taking 4 large calcium tablets a day it has been a pleasure to take one capsule instead. Seems to be working well.
This is s great product that I am happy to see is working. My fingernails are much stronger . After taking different calcium products this is the best and I really like that it only needs to be taken once a day best at night.
Have been using this product for a while now and am very relieved to be able to purchase it on this site for a sensible price. Will continue to order through Go Healthy.
