A vitamin that supports bone health and the functioning of several proteins made in the liver that allow your blood to clot.
What is Vitamin K?
In 1929, a Danish researcher discovered the compound necessary to stanch blood flow, which he called vitamin K. “K” is for the German word koagulation, which means “coagulation” in English. Vitamin K is essential for bone health and the functioning of several proteins made in the liver that allow your blood to clot.*
Vitamin K1, produced by plants, is the primary form of the vitamin in our diet and the type of vitamin K that’s necessary for coagulation to occur.*
Why is Vitamin K Important?
In addition to blood clotting, Vitamin K activates the conversion of a bone-building protein called osteocalcin that shores up bone tissue by binding the minerals that support bone strength.*
