What is Vitamin K?

Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin which has a key role in blood clotting and bone metabolism. It is necessary for the formation of prothrombin by the liver. Prothrombin is the normal constituent of the blood which helps in blood clotting on direct contact with air and thus prevent excessive bleeding.

Vitamin K and Bone Metabolism

Bone metabolism is a continuous process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and replaced by new tissue. When injuries occur to the bone like fractures or bruises, then Vitamin K kicks in to heal the injury. Vitamin K is a fat soluble Vitamin which means it is absorbed in the body in the presence of fat. So have your Kale with some olive oil or cook your Spinach in oil. Enjoy our kale masoor antioxidant salad recipe which is tossed with olive oil.
