3 Foods That Are High In Vitamin K (Volume 1)

Ever heard of a cereal called Special K?

Well, the K about which we’re going to speak in this short article is special in its own right, and that’s as a vitamin.

See, vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes in two forms:*

  1. Phylloquinone
  2. Menaquinones

Now the first form is found in green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, etc.) and the second form is found in fermented foods and some animal-based foods.*

What vitamin K primarily does for humans is help to make various proteins that are needed for blood clotting and the building of our bones.*

There is also a vitamin K-dependent protein called prothrombin that is directly involved with blood clotting, as well as osteocalcin, another vitamin K-dependent protein, that helps us produce healthy bone tissue.*

So, as you can see, vitamin K is truly an important piece to our bodies functioning properly.

So, in the video below, we’re going to show you three foods that are rich in vitamin K.
