Overview
In 1935 a scientist in Copenhagen observed that newly hatched chickens receiving a diet containing all known essential nutrients were developing a bleeding disorder. He soon discovered that the chicks were deficient in a nutrient that is crucial for normal blood clotting. He called this nutrient Vitamin K. Today, Vitamin K deficiency is rare, except in infants, for whom such a deficiency can be fatal. Vitamin K is a fat-soluble nutrient that has also proven important for bone health. The best sources of Vitamin K are liver, green leafy vegetables, and members of the cabbage family. Since Vitamin K is also produced by bacteria in the intestines, humans are not dependent upon diet alone for this nutrient.

Our Vitamin K 100mcg is available in 100 count vegetarian tablets.
