Vitamin K

Why should I buy Vitamin K?

Table of contents

Vitamin K is an essential element that is found in plants or produced by the intestinal bacteria. An essential element, in this case a vitamin, is an organic component that contains carbon molecules that are vital for life and have to be supplied externally, through food or nutritional supplements.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means that they are usually absorbed by chylomicrons (fat molecules that circulate in the bloodstream after digestion), and that travel through the lymphatic system of the small intestine and in the blood flow throughout the body, to be deposited in the tissues and remain in those areas.

Note that chylomicrons are made up in almost a 90% of triglycerides, which are the main fat packages transported through the organism.

Those who eat too much fat soluble vitamins can develop what is known as "hypervitaminosis", a term that literally refers to the presence of an excess of one or several vitamins.

The name Vitamin K

The name given to this vitamin comes from the German word koagulation, since its role in regulating blood coagulation was discovered in Germany.

Main sources of Vitamin K

  • Vitamin K1: vegetables, especially those with dark green leaves
  • Vitamin K2: meats, eggs, dairy products, fish, fermented vegetable foods, fermented animal foods.

Do I need to use Vitamin K supplementation?

You should consult a specialist before you begin to use supplementation and, if necessary, carry out a series of tests in order to assess the situation. However, if any of the following applies to you, the use of this supplement would certainly be helpful:

  • Use of certain medications, such as antibiotics, medicines to reduce cholesterol, the use of aspirin, which can drastically reduce the levels of vitamin K in the body or interfere with its absorption.
  • If you are suffering from a disease associated to the intestinal system, such as: Crohn's syndrome, Ulcerative colitis, Celiac disease, or any other that prevents the proper absorption of nutrients.
  • Post-menopausal women
  • Any old person at risk of suffering bone fractures
