K IS FOR CLOT­TING

Allrecipes - - Good 4 You -

When vi­ta­min K was first dis­cov­ered, Ger­mans called it Koag­u­la­tionsvi­ta­min—which tells you ex­actly what it does best: en­able blood clot­ting or co­ag­u­la­tion. In fact, vi­ta­min K is used medic­i­nally in adults who have taken too much blood-thin­ning med­i­ca­tion, such as war­farin, for heart dis­ease. Vi­ta­min K may also help strengthen bones in older women with os­teo­poro­sis.
