Micro-Nutrients Vitamin-K

Vitamin-K is a Fat-Soluble Vitamin, and is stored in The Body’s Fat Tissue & Liver. Naturally, it occurs in two forms, K-1 (Phylloquinone – Found in Plants) & K-2 (Menaquinones, A Group of Compounds, Mainly found in Dairy Products (A2 Ghee, A2 Milk, A2 Cheese…)).

What Vitamin-K is: It does following in The Body…

  • Helps Blood Clotting (Blood Coagulation),
  • Provides-maintains Good Bone Health,
  • Gives Blood Vessels their strength & Helps them function properly.

Reasons for Shortage of Vitamin-K: Un-balanced Diet, Side-Effects of Medicines (Quite a Few Anti-Biotics, Blood Thinners, Fat Reducing drugs, Cholesterol Reducing drugs, Chronic Liver & Kidney Ailments etc.),

Vitamin-K Deficiency may lead to:

  • Excessive Bleeding (Nose Bleeding or Oozing from Gums,
  • Fragile Bones – Osteoporosis,
  • Circulatory System Disorders (Atherosclerosis).

Rich Source of Vitamin-K:    Other than the sources, Vitamin-K is also formed in Our Intestines by good Bacteria Present there.

Plant Sources:           Leafy Green Vegetables (Broccoli, Brussels, Spinach, Cabbage), Turnip Greens, Kale, Asparagus, Oats, Potatoes, Tomatoes etc.

Chlorophyll in Plants Gives Plants Vitamin-K (Actually K1) & Its Green colour. Vitamin-K in Plants is not affected by heating it but is destroyed by Freezing.

Animal Sources:        A2 Ghee, A2 Milk, A2 Cheese, Butter-Milk…

My View it is best to Avoid Synthetic Supplements and Only Go in For Organic Sources.

Daily Recommended Values:

Adults:            100-125 mcg/Day.

Sharing is Caring!

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
