Vitamin K Health Benefits

07Vitamin K doesn’t enjoy the same level of popularity as the others in the vitamin alphabet. Some call it “the forgotten vitamin,” saying it is the most underutilized and underappreciated nutrient today. All this is fast-changing, however. More and more people are now beginning to understand how Vitamin K can play an important role in boosting brain and body performance.

Health Benefits:

– Keeps your bones, tissues and muscles strong.

– Powers up your cardiovascular system.

– Strengthens your immune system and helps you fight off disease and inflammation.

– Sharpens your memory and reduces the risk of dementia later in life.

– Offers protection against colon cancer, gastric cancer, bladder cancer and leukemia.

Vitamin K deficiency is rare among healthy adults. If your medical care provider recommends supplementation, they will ask for medicines you are currently taking. Vitamin K may interfere with the effects of some medications including blood thinners, antibiotics, anti-cholesterol and more. Some studies also show that vitamin K needs to be supported with the right levels of other fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E to prevent deficiencies.
