Menaquinone and Phytonadione (a.k.a. Vitamins K1 and K2) Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy This vitamin aids in blood clotting, as it is essential to the formation of prothrombin, an enzyme which is, in turn, necessary for the formation of fibrin, the major constituent of a blood clot. Vitamin K is derived from leafy green vegetables and soybean oil. It also is synthesized in the colon by bacteria. A normal diet combined with unimpaired bacterial synthesis usually is sufficient to supply enough vitamin K.
