Discover the properties of this nutrient at HSN and get the vitamin k that best suits you at the best price and to your specific needs.

Vitamin K fuctions: What does it do?

These are the main functions to which vitamin K contributes, and which represent the benefits of this nutrient:

Contributing to normal blood clotting.

And to the normal maintenance of bones.

What types are there?

There are several types within the K group:

  • K1 or Phytoquinone.
  • K2 or Menaquinone.
  • K3 or Menadione.

While vitamin K1 is found in plants and green vegetables, which require it for photosynthesis, K2 is generated from K1 and K3 via microorganisms and a certain a type of bacteria. Our body, for its part, synthesises it through the conversion process that involves the other two types, K1 and K3.

What is the best form of Vitamin K?

The most effective form of this vitamin is natural K2, Menaquinone-7 (MK-7), which is obtained through fermentation using natto cultures. Why? It has greater bioavailability and bioactivity.

Here are some of the benefits of natural vitamin K:

  • Greater bioavailability and bioactivity than other forms. Scientific studies have shown that the natural vitamin is superior to other forms of K, both in terms of absorption and in the duration of its benefits.
  • It has no side effects.

Where is vitamin K found?

Because the body does not produce enough vitamin K, it must be supplied via food or dietary supplementation

Leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, mustard and beet greens, chard, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, prunes and parsley are some of the foods that contain vitamin K and are notable for their vitamin K content.

Other foods rich in vitamin K include:

Onion

Soy

Tea

Asparagus

Blueberries

Blackberries

When the intake of this nutrient from the diet is insufficient, this deficiency should be compensated through dietary supplements or vitamin K food supplements, always under the supervision of a doctor or expert.

How do i know if i'm lacking in Vitamin K?

Detecting a vitamin K deficiency in advance isn't easy. However, there are a number of symptoms to look out for that may be a sign of a deficiency in the nutrient. These are some of the main ones:

  • Frequent bruising without apparent cause.
  • Excessive menstruation.
  • Frequent bleeding (through the nose, in the urine...).
  • Osteoporosis or calcification in the arteries. 

It is best to see a doctor if vitamin K deficiency is suspected, to confirm the diagnosis and testing.

Frequently asked questions about vitamin K

Although vitamin K is necessary for all people, it is particularly recommended for:

  • Those suffering from a blood disorder or disease (arteriosclerosis).
  • Elderly people with bone diseases.
  • Children, in order to build and strengthen their bone quality.
  • People suffering from tooth sensitivity.

In principle, vitamin K is a natural supplement that has no side effects.

There's also no risk that it will cause excessive clotting in the blood, as the proteins responsible for this work have a limited capacity to absorb it. Meaning once the body is saturated, no more clotting can occur.

Experts recommend taking at least 45mcg of vitamin K2 daily. 

However, it is essential to consult a doctor or expert beforehand to adapt the intake of the nutrient to the specific nutritional needs of each person.
