Vitamin K is for more than just clotting

Do you have a lot of nosebleeds or bruising? The K in vitamin K is for the German word koagulation. Vitamin K1 occurs naturally in plants and Vitamin K2, is manufactured by friendly bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. Vitamin K3 though is the one you want to avoid because it is the synthetic version that generates free radicals. A new study has found that the K2 form can reduce prostate cancer risk by 35% and works very well against advanced prostate cancer. K2 protects us from heart disease, ensures healthy skin, forms strong bones, promotes brain function and supports growth and development in children. Vitamin K2 has so many functions that are not associated with vitamin K1 that K1 and K2 are almost two entirely different vitamins! In general, 150 micrograms per day of supplemental Vitamin K2 will do nicely.

Nosebleeds are a symptom - not a disease.
