Vitamin Facts part 6

Vitamin K

As far as I know, there isn't a vitamin F or G. So K is obviously our next victim. I do believe that vitamin K is also the last one on the list. Which means that vitamin K is the last one I have learned about, therefore, the last one I'll be blogging about. Which, I'm sure, will be a relief to my dear readers!
Anyway, vitamin K is very important because, without it you could bleed to death! Vitamin K helps your blood to coagulate. So, without it ,blood does not clot properly which could lead to internal bleeding, and bleeding to death.
You can get vitamin K in your diet from yogurt, alfalfa( an excellent source by the way), dark green leafy vegetables, cabbage, cauliflower, egg yolk, liver, and soy bean oil. To suggest a "proper" daily amount is difficult because, like vitamin D, the needed amount varies from person to person.

I hope that, at least, some of this information has been helpful and easy to understand. Just remember that diet and exercise are the keys to preventing those unwanted doctor bills and keeping your body healthy!
