Vitamin K - Everything you need to know

In the following, we will tell you everything you need to know about vitamin K. Among other things, we explain vitamin K's benefits and how much vitamin K you should generally take. Did you know that Vitamin K is important for blood clotting?

What is vitamin K?

Vitamin K belongs to the group of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E. It can also occur in two forms: as vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) and as vitamin K2 (menaquinone). The difference is that phylloquinone is found mainly in plant foods, while menaquinone is found mainly in the human intestine, as it can be produced by bacteria, including the bacteria E.coli.

What foods contain vitamin K?

Vitamin K can be absorbed naturally through a balanced diet. A high vitamin K content can be found in plant foods like green vegetables. For example, leaf lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sproutschives, and vegetable oils are good sources of vitamin K1. 

Vitamin K2 is mainly found in dairy products, eggs, or meat, but only in small amounts. A very high source of vitamin K2 is a special soybean product from Japan called Natto.

But our bears also contain vitamin K. We have developed something special, especially for children: Our new Doin' It For The Kids with a multivitamin complex. So you don't have to worry about a sufficient vitamin K supply for your child. We recommend the bears for children from 4 years.

What are the benefits of taking vitamin K?

As already mentioned, vitamin K is particularly important for blood clotting in the body. This is because absorption takes place in the intestine and is then transported via the blood to the liver. This is where the production of blood clotting factors takes place, one of the most important tasks of vitamin K. This means that vitamin K is important for stopping bleeding

However, taking vitamin K has other benefits as well. These include preventing calcium deposits, for example, in blood vessels or cartilage. But it is also involved in cell processes such as cell division. In addition, vitamin K plays an important role in repair processes, for example, in blood vessels and nerve cells, but also in the eyes, kidneys and liver. 

For women in particular, taking it can also be interesting in other respects. Vitamin K is said to inhibit bone loss in women after menopause. This is because the enzyme osteocalcin, which regulates this process, depends on the vitamin K content.


"As you can see, the sufficient intake of vitamin K must not be forgotten under any circumstances. Because vitamin K is especially important for blood clotting in the human body."
