Transcript

Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin and is important for blood clotting functions and strong bones.

Foods high in Vitamin K include, green leafy vegetables, asparagus, and olive oil.

Deficiency and toxicity are rare. Deficiency is usually only a concern for individuals on blood thinners as it reduces absorption of vitamin K and in newborns since Vitamin K does not cross the placenta and breast milk does not provide any significant amount. Newborns are usually given a shot of vitamin K to reduce any risks.

The recommended amount of vitamin K to be consumed daily is 90 mcg in women and 120 micrograms in men. For instance, 1/3 cup of cooked kale provides 353 mcg of Vitamin K. In fact, One serving of several types of leafy greens will provide the RDA.

Vitamin K is a 1 on our rating scale, most people do get enough of it in their diet

As mentioned toxicity is not a concern with food consumption. Toxicity does not occur without doses in excess of 1000 times over the RDA.
