Vitamin K is crucial for our health.
Kale is an excellent source of Vitamin K. So include kale in your smoothies for a super-healthy boost of nutrients and for loads of health benefits. (Just one cup has 1180% of your daily value nutritional requirements, according to WHFoods.) But remember it is a fat-soluble vitamin (as are Vitamins A, E and D) and as such requires fat in your diet.
It is suggested that most of us get enough Vitamin K to support blood clotting but not enough to protect us from other health problems.
Dr Mercola says …
Vitamin K is an important fat-soluble vitamin that plays critical roles in protecting your heart, building your bones, optimizing your insulin levels, and helping your blood to clot properly …
Recent research has shown that having adequate vitamin K is important in preventing heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, multiple types of cancer, and even Alzheimer’s disease, among others.
Vitamin K works with Vitamin D and recent research indicates most of us are deficient in both (This is probably a result of the low fat diets we have been following for years.)
