Vitamin K

Last spring I added Vitamin K complex to my list of daily supplements.  My primary motivation was as an adjunct for bone health, because on a regular basis, I simply was not eating enough dark green leafy vegetables.  

Recently a list of research articles has broadened my perspective on Vitamin K's diverse possible supportive functions in the body. 

I wonder how many here might be supplementing their Vitamin K levels.  It seems that this could be a relevant discussion as I looked at the titles on the list or research articles.

I started taking K2 because of bleeding issues. Perhaps Cpn was dying off in my vascular system but for a while I had bleeds in the whites of my eyes from time to time and my blood wasn't clotting well. My blood is rather thin but clots well now. I take Life Extension Super K.

I also eat a lot of raw green veggies.

Hi Raven, I started with a Solgar product and then moved on to the Life Extention Super K which was an increase in potency.  Louise
