vitamin information

everything about vitamins

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble multicomponent vitamin. Usually two components are being mentioned, K1 synthesized by plants, and K2. It is anti-bleeding medium, important for blood precipitability and creation of protrombins. It is not toxical, neither in big dosages.

Sources of vitamin K
Anything green contains vitamin K, as it is dependent on the chlorophyll. Especially green leafy vegetables. Intestinal bacteria produce vitamin K. Small amounts can be also found in milk and diary products, eggs, meat  and cereals, among others.

Dietary Reference Intakes published by Food and Nutrition Board of Institute of Medicine of National Academies for vitamin K in 2004 stand at 90-120 micrograms of vitamin K per day for an average healthy adult. Recommendations for infants, children, males and females under 18 years of age, or females during lactation and pregnancy differ from the average.



I have decided to start an active promotion of this website, so that we get more visitors soon. And it would be a waste of time if we didn't allow for discussion and sharing of informations. In light of that, discussion forum will be officially launched on June 21st.



I hope it will serve a positive function in opening alternative horizons in the area of general information about vitamins.
