Vitamin K Depletion
Although most people consume adequate dietary vitamin K to maintain sufficient blood clotting, most do not consume enough to meet bone health needs. Compromised intestinal absorption can also lead to insufficient K2 levels leaving calcium available to be exported out of bone and into other tissues. Other medications such as antibiotics, cholesterol lowering medications, and laxatives have also been found to contribute to a deficiency of vitamin K.
Building and maintaining healthy bones requires a number of key nutrients including vitamin K, for the proper binding of calcium to the bone matrix.
Evidence suggests vitamin K plays a central role in balancing immune health. Recent studies have shown that both vitamins D and K impart immune-modulating effects.
