Vitamin K Deserves More Attention Than It's Getting...
Vitamin K in its multiple forms supports stronger bones, better blood flow and healthy hormonal production. Vitamins K1 and K2 synergize with Vitamin D in the body to keep adequate calcium levels inside your bones. A deficiency in Vitamin K can cause chronic weakening of your bone health over time. In addition, Vitamin K plays a major role in supporting healthy blood vessels. Finally, Vitamin K2 in the forms MK-4 and MK-7 have been widely studied for hormonal support, specifically playing an important role in healthy production of reproductive hormones. Use Daily K to support your bones, joints, circulatory system and hormonal production naturally.
Let's bridge the gap between health and humanity
We believe in the power of the body's ability to heal the individual, and that medication and surgery should be a last resort. The products and services we provide are designed to give the body what it needs to thrive, heal and repair naturally. We do this by integrating natural health and objective, research-backed education to provide people with everything their bodies need to operate at maximum potential.
The most important step in achieving our mission is to deliver proper health and nutritional education to the public. Unfortunately, public school health education is decades behind, and medical schooling tends to avoid nutritional education in order to test the theories behind the efficacy of pharmaceuticals in isolation.
We choose our products carefully and research them thoroughly before releasing to the public. If you choose not to start your health journey with UMZU, we still encourage you to browse the educational pieces below. The more you understand about your body, the better you will be able to take control of your own health.
What is Vitamin K?
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that comes in two forms. The main type is called phylloquinone, found in green leafy vegetables like collard greens, kale, and spinach. The other type, menaquinones, are found in some animal foods and fermented foods. Menaquinones can also be produced by bacteria in the human body.
What Does Vitamin K Do?
Vitamin K helps to make various proteins that are needed for blood clotting and the building of bones. Prothrombin is a vitamin K-dependent protein directly involved with blood clotting. Osteocalcin is another protein that requires vitamin K to produce healthy bone tissue.
Where is Vitamin K Found in the Human Body?
Vitamin K is found throughout the body including the liver, brain, heart, pancreas, and bone. It is broken down very quickly and excreted in urine or stool. Because of this, it rarely reaches toxic levels in the body even with high intakes, as may sometimes occur with other fat-soluble vitamins.
Which Foods Contain Vitamin K?
Green leafy vegetables including collard and turnip greens, kale, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, lettuces
A common misconception about Vitamin K is that since our bodies typically have 10x more K1 than K2, most people assume that enough K1 can be converted to K2 naturally. Recent studies have confirmed that this is not the case and demonstrate that we actually need to consume K2 itself daily in order to reap its many important benefits.
Phytonadione (Vitamin K1)
Phytonadione (Vitamin K1) is needed in the body in order to help blood clot properly to prevent excessive bleeding, and is especially necessary to supplement with for people who have a Vitamin K deficiency. The body's storage system for vitamin K is minimal. With very little reserves, this means vitamin K needs to be consumed daily.
MK-4 (Vitamin K2)
A common misconception about Vitamin K is that since our bodies typically have 10x more K1 than K2, most people assume that enough K1 can be converted to K2 naturally. Recent studies have confirmed that this is not the case and demonstrate that we actually need to consume K2 itself daily in order to reap its many important benefits (study, study). MK-4 is used in especially high amounts in the brain and reproductive organs, but only lasts roughly 8 hours in the bloodstream, highlighting the need for regular daily supplementation.
MK-7 (Vitamin K2)
MK-7 is produced inside of the GI tract, and can be found in fermented foods, raw cheeses, egg yolks, and liver. MK-7 is a particularly effective form of Vitamin K to supplement with because it is easily absorbed by the gut and can last for up to three days in the bloodstream.
