What Is Vitamin K?

Vitamin K is a vitamin that is often overlooked in our daily dietary needs. This fat-soluble vitamin plays a major role in our body’s processing of calcium and Vitamin D; both of which are primary contributors to the overall bone and heart function as well as health. A lack of vitamin K in our system can lead to serious issues that could manifest in diseases such as osteoporosis and coronary heart problems. Other health problems that may arise from a lack of Vitamin K are poor wound healing, abnormal bone formation, and abdominal pain.

What’s Vitamin K For?

Vitamin K is a crucial factor in our body’s processing Vitamin D and calcium. Research has shown that without Vitamin K, the body cannot move these vitamins into the cells that need these nutrients. However, not just any kind of Vitamin K will do. This complex nutrient is broken down into two major types; Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2. Our bodies benefit highly from both types, as each play different roles.

Vitamin K1, also known as phylloquinone, is essential in blood clotting and wound healing. Without it, our bodies won’t be able to heal as efficiently. Cuts and bruises take a significantly longer time to heal without Vitamin K, not to mention the damage done to our internal organs which also need blood clotting. In addition, research has also shown that an abundance of Vitamin K1 can decrease the incidence of developing non-Hodgkins lymphoma; the most common type of blood cancer in the United States.

Vitamin K2 plays a role in our body’s usage of vitamin D and calcium. The discovery of this type of Vitamin K is relatively new, but studies have shown that Vitamin K2, also known as menaquinone, is essential in moving vitamin D and calcium in the right places in our bodies.

Vitamin K2 research has also shown that it clears calcium deposits that are in the wrong places, which lowers the risk of coronary heart disease and other abnormal calcium deposits in the bones and blood vessels. Abnormal calcium deposits can be found in the bloodstream as well, which may impede proper blood circulation. Vitamin K2 can help clear these formations.

How Do I Know If I Need More Vitamin K?

As of late, there is no laboratory test that can show the levels of Vitamin K in the system. However, if you have osteoporosis, type 1 or 2 diabetes, or heart disease, then you’re likely not getting enough of this nutrient. A family history of these diseases may also indicate that you need more Vitamin K in your diet. It’s also important to note that wounds, cuts, and bruises take a longer time to heal without Vitamin K.

Pregnant women, or women who are expecting a baby, also need a lot of Vitamin K for the baby to develop proper skeletal structure. Growing children can also benefit greatly from a diet rich in Vitamin K for dental health and proper bone formation.

Best Sources Of Vitamin K:

Vitamin K1 can be found in mostly dark green, leafy vegetables. Plants use Vitamin K1 to process the food they need to grow, and the darker the leaves, the more phylloquinone it’s likely to have. Kale, collard greens, cabbage, swiss chard and broccoli have high levels of Vitamin K per serving.

Vitamin K2 is made in blood vessel walls, bones, and tissues. This type of Vitamin K can be found in abundance in organic, grass-fed beef and poultry as well as cheese, eggs, and butter.


A high menaquinone intake reduces the incidence of coronary heart disease.

Take These 8 Nutrients 1 Hour Before Bed To Boost Deep Sleep And Metabolic Regeneration By 695%:

Do you ever have trouble "turning off your brain", or experience anxiety, poor sleep or high stress?

It's called Shallow Sleep Syndrome... and it affects a HUGE number of people in the modern age.

Also - have you gained weight - even though you are "doing what you always did"? *raises hand*

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you MUST watch this video:

Most people are unaware that your sleep and your weight are connected!

Science has proved without doubt that your body cannot function without adequate DEEP sleep.

Deep sleep facilitates Metabolic regeneration - which repairs tissues (including brain cells), rebuilds health and restores your ability to convert food to energy instead of fat.

Deep sleep also supports the production of Human Growth Hormone - which is considered the "fountain of youth" by anti-aging experts.

Without sufficient deep sleep, our natural production and growth of Human Growth Hormone is obliterated!

Your Metabolism is wrecked and you have dramatically increased risk of serious disease!

But it gets worse - lack of deep sleep also suppresses the hunger-regulating hormone Leptin, which results in runaway food cravings and the metabolic dysfunction responsible for "inexplicable" weight gain.

Our natural levels of deep sleep decline in our 30's and even more in our 40's, which leads to metabolic slowdown and consequently, increased signs of aging.

However a dangerous new problem has entered the arena.... technology.

The culprit?

The screen of your cell phone, tablet, laptop, computer and television!

In addition to the High Stress of our Modern Lifestyle, the blue light emitted by the screens of our electronic devices is Wreaking Absolute Havoc on our physiological ability to achieve the previous deep sleep that we need so badly! This also is scientifically established!

The blue light emitted by smartphones, TV, computer monitors, tablets, laptop and blue LEDs has a similar effect on our bodies as bright sunlight - messing up our circadian rhythms and confusing our bodies about whether we should be awake or asleep!

Blue Light KILLS Deep Sleep!

Blue light, especially in the evenings and night time, destroys our bodies ability to produce its natural deep sleep hormones!

Once these hormones are gone, so is the deep sleep responsible for the body's natural fat burning power.

Can you now see the simple link between our modern lifestyle and out of control weight gain so many are experiencing?

Fortunately - nature has the answer (as always)...
