What is Vitamin K?
Vitamin K by Solgar is a product made of vitamin K from the form phytonadione (vitamin K1). It is a type of fat soluble vitamin which is very important to ensure our health, since it is involved in some crucial tasks of the body. Some people can experience a deficiency of this vitamin due to several factors: suffering an autoimmune disease that hinders the absorption of the nutrients, some medication, or drinking a lot of alcohol.
What are the properties of Vitamin K?
Vitamin K is renowned for being involved in the blood coagulation. It participates in the hepatic synthesis of several proteins in charge of regulating the blood coagulation. It is essential to prevent internal bleeding.
But the functions of Vitamin K go beyond. This vitamin is involved in the bone metabolism, since osteocalcin, a specific bone protein, needs this vitamin to mature. Having enough Vitamin K available will lower the risk of fractures and preserve the bone mineral density in case of osteoporosis.
