Benefits of Vitamin K
• Promotes Antioxidant Activity
Vitamin K has antioxidant properties. It protects cellular membranes from damage due to excess free radicals in a process known as peroxidation. High levels of free radicals may cause harm to the body and are linked to several diseases. Along with a nutritional diet, vitamin K may be beneficial to the body, especially to those who may be vitamin K deficient.
• Promotes Cardiovascular Health
Vitamin K also promotes a healthy heart. Some studies have found a link between vitamin K and the production of matrix Gla proteins, which may help prevent calcification or hardening of heart arteries, a contributor to heart disease.
• Promotes Bone and Joint Health
Vitamin K plays a crucial role in the metabolism of calcium. Calcium is a mineral found in bones and teeth. Vitamin K activates the calcium-binding actions of matrix Gla and osteocalcin, which help build and maintain bones. Osteoporosis is a common health condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle. Some studies have shown a decreased risk of fractures when taking vitamin K.
