The Power of Vitamin K

Post  forumtester on Mon Mar 26, 2018 8:19 pm

This vitamin is not as well known as other vitamins, however, vitamin K is one of the most extraordinary anti-aging vitamins ever discovered. Research shows that vitamin K has unique powers, not only to help blood coagulate or to make you look younger, but it can prevent heart disease and osteoporosis at the same time. Also, since the antioxidant quality in vitamin K is stronger than in other vitamins, researchers believe that this vitamin can treat certain kinds of cancer.

How can vitamin K prevent heart disease and osteoporosis at the same time?

Vitamin K regulates calcium needed for proper bone formation in the human body. Vitamin K aids in the production of prothrombin, a compound required for normal clotting of blood.

How do you get vitamin K?

Vitamin K is found in a variety of foods, specifically in brussels sprouts, chopped broccoli, cauliflower, swiss chard, spinach, loose-leaf lettuce, carrots, green beans, asparagus, egg, strawberry, avocado, and pea pods. Other significant sources are soybean oil, olive oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil.

Vitamin K in supplement form can be bought in health shops and ordered online.

How much vitamin K should you take?

The standard dietary allowance for Vitamin K is approximately 1 mcg per 2.2 pounds of body weight per day, or about 65 to 80 mcg per day for most adults. This also depends on age, diet and stress factors. High amounts of vitamin K will not cause your blood to overcoagulate. Coagulation proteins only have a certain number of spaces for vitamin K. Once those spaces are filled, vitamin K cannot affect coagulation proteins.
