Vitamin K Supplements
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin vital for blood clotting, healing of wounds and preventing excessive bleeding. Some evidence supports that Vitamin K helps to keep bones healthy. Vitamin K is made up of two forms, Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2. Both of the vitamin K1 and K2’s primary function is to activate proteins that play important roles in bone & heart health and blood clotting.
Vitamin K deficiency can increase the risk of uncontrolled bleeding. It is used in the treatment of anticoagulant drug ‘warfarin’ overdose.
Doctors may suggest taking Vitamin K supplements if you have:
* Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis disease or other diseases which affect the absorption in the digestive tract
* Severe malnutrition
* Habit of consuming large amounts of alcohol
* To take medicines that interfere with vitamin K absorption
