Vitamin K


Vitamin Ks major role in the body is to assist with blood clotting. In fact, it has been called the band-aid vitamin. Half of your daily supply of vitamin K is manufactured in the intestinal tract and the other half is supplied in the diet. Poor digestion, rancid fats, aspirin and antibiotics are just some of the things that can effect the bodys ability to make vitamin K. And, only under rare circumstances, would someone need to supplement with vitamin K.

Food sources:
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Dairy
  • Yogurt
  • Kefir
  • Eggs
  • Blackstrap molasses
  • Fatty fish
