              VITAMIN K

Known as the "Clotting Vitamin", Vitamin K is a valuable ally to the protection of our bodies. The vitamin clots blood in order to prevent excessive bleeding when cut.

There are two types of Vitamin K, K1 and K2. K1 can be found in leafy greens such as lettuce, kale, and spinach. It’s also found in other vegetables like brussel sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli. K2 is largely compounded in meats, cheeses, eggs, and other synthesized by bacteria.

The lack of a regular amount of Vitamin K can result in excessive bleeding.

Taking too much Vitamin K has no negative or positive effects on the body. However, a Vitamin K deficiency can cause an individual to be easily bruised and have continuous bleeding.

Over time the level of Vitamin K becomes regular, resulting in less deficiencies found in mature adults. When a child is born, they are at risk of having very low Vitamin K levels leading to a deficiency.
