Dark berries, leafy green vegetables and intestinal bacteria typically provide all of the Vitamin K that a person needs to stay healthy. Yet, some people do not get enough of this vitamin. Some people merely do not eat enough foods that are rich in Vitamin K. Sometimes the problem involves intestinal damage that prevents natural absorption or other health conditions that interfere with the storage of Vitamin K in the body's fat and liver tissues.
Vitamin K is considered an "essential" nutrient for a good reason: It aids in the production of proteins that promote clotting and tissue formation and the normal function of the body's response to injury. It also helps with the calcium transport process that is critical to bone formation, strength and maintenance.
A Vitamin K supplement is designed to provide you with the daily levels of Vitamin K needed to maintain these and other physical processes.
