This vitamin reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.


Vitamin K is an essential vitamin for blood clotting. K of vitamin K is said to have been derived from the first letter of “Koagulation,” which means clotting in Danish, by a Danish scholar who identified the relationship between vitamin and blood coagulation.

According to a recently published study, vitamin K intake lowers the risk of certain types of cardiovascular diseases due to Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD).

A team of Dr. Nicola P. Bondonno at the University of Ediscowan’s Institute of Nutrition analyzed data from 53,372 Danish people aged 56 on average to investigate the link between Vitamin K and cardiovascular disease.

The research team estimated the intake of vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 by the survey, and 8,726 of them had cases of cardiovascular disease, which led to a follow-up investigation.

According to the study, the person with the highest intake of vitamin K1 had a 21% reduction in risk of hospitalization due to cardiovascular disease and 14% reduction in vitamin K2 compared to the person with the lowest intake.

An increase in vitamin K intake reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease of all types caused by atherosclerosis and especially peripheral artery disease by 34%.

“More research will be needed, but data from this study suggests that regular consumption of vitamin K-rich foods can protect the arteries from calcium build-up,” Dr. Bondonno said.

Meanwhile, foods rich in vitamin K include green vegetables such as kale, spinach, lettuce, modern times, turnips, broccoli and cabbage, eggs, fish and meat.
