Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that occurs naturally in certain foods and is also produced by the body. There are two main forms of vitamin K: vitamin K1 (phytomenadione) and vitamin K2 (menaquinone). Vitamin K1 is mainly found in green leafy vegetables, while vitamin K2 is mainly found in fermented foods and animal products. We choose vitamin K2 in our supplements, as it has a better bioavailability than K1 and is therefore more easily absorbed and stays in the body longer than vitamin K1. In addition, vitamin K2 has a broader effect in the body than vitamin K1 and shows synergy with vitamin D.
What Does Vitamin K Do?
Vitamin K plays a crucial role in the body. It is responsible for blood clotting. It also aids in the absorption of calcium into the bones and contributes to bone density. This makes vitamin K especially important for the elderly.
Why are vitamin K and vitamin D combined?
Vitamin K and Vitamin D work closely together to support bone health. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium from food, while vitamin K ensures that this calcium is properly incorporated into the bones. The combination of vitamins D and K can contribute to better bone health, especially in the elderly.
Maximum amount of vitamin K
The recommended daily amount of vitamin K varies according to age, gender and individual needs. It is important not to take too much vitamin K as it can lead to health problems in some cases. Always consult a doctor or a nutritionist to determine how much vitamin K you need per day.
