Healthy blood and healthy bones are literally at the core of who we are. Vitamin K, the forgotten vitamin, plays a vital role in the sustenance of both of these essential parts of us. When you need it to clot your blood and grow your bones can you really afford to let it go forgotten any longer?
You've heard of all the big hitters; vitamins A, B, C and D and several others too. So why haven't you heard more about vitamin K? Especially when it transpires that it's just as important as the rest.
Our body uses vitamin K in a number of ways but the most important roles it plays have to do with clotting our blood and helping us grow strong, healthy bones. What else do we know about it though?
Swanson Vitamin K1 is a vitamin K derivative most commonly found in plants. In fact, it is an essential element in the process of photosynthesis. By bringing us this highly bioavailable source of vitamin K we are harnessing not just the power of the vitamin itself but the power inherent to all plant based supplements.
Imagine if you're body lost its ability to clot your blood. Even the most innocuous scratch or blemish could suddenly become a huge problem. You'd be like a burst water balloon - incapable of stemming the flow. This incredibly simple process wouldn't be possible without vitamin K in our systems.
Bone growth requires many different vitamins and they all play their own unique part in the development and maintenance of a healthy bone structure but perhaps none so much as vitamins K and D. When these two combine together they actually create a protein which is essential to allow minerals in our bones to bind together. Without this simple process our bones would lack the density required to support us.
There is even evidence that a vitamin K deficiency can result in increased instances of hip bone fractures.
