I was told I should take vitamin K.


Answer by  beckyk (34)

Vitamin K's primary function is its role in producing proteins used in blood clotting. Recently, researchers have also discovered a possible connection in vitamin K levels and the ability to create bone mass, which may provide alternative treatment options for women with osteoporosis. Cell growth is also dependent on vitamin K.

Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin. Vitamin K is essential for blood clotting, protection against osteoporosis, and keeping both the circulatory and nervous system healthy. It can be found in green leafy vegetables like kale, leaf lettuce and chard.

I have a quarter acre garden, most is given to the raising of Turnips and greens and Mustard greens. I can most, dehydrate a lot and freeze some. My wife has RA and I give her the greens to help with the pain. I believe it works.

Vitamin K helps your blood clot, so that you can form a scab if you cut yourself and you won't have internal bleeding. It makes your bones stronger too.
