Health Notes

Vitamin K

Vitamin K
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Osteoporosis
Dose: 1,000 mcg daily
Vitamin K is needed for bone formation, and supplementing with it may be a way to maintain bone mass.(more)
Atherosclerosis
Dose: 500 mcg per day of vitamin K1
In a double-blind trial, supplementing with vitamin K1 for three years appeared to slow the rate of progression of coronary artery calcification in seniors. (more)
Celiac Disease
Dose: Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner
The malabsorption that occurs in celiac disease can lead to multiple nutritional deficiencies. Supplementing with vitamin K may correct a deficiency.(more)
Crohn's Disease
Dose: 80 to 1,000 mcg daily
Taking vitamin K can counteract the deficiency and resulting bone loss that can occur in people with Crohn's disease.(more)
Morning Sickness
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Vitamin K and vitamin C, taken together, may provide relief of morning sickness symptoms for some women.(more)
Osteoporosis
Dose: 1,000 mcg daily

Vitamin K is needed for bone formation. People with osteoporosis have been reported to have low blood levels1, 2 and low dietary intake of vitamin K.3, 4 One study found that postmenopausal (though not premenopausal) women may reduce urinary loss of calcium by taking 1 mg of vitamin K per day.5 People with osteoporosis given large amounts of vitamin K2 (45 mg per day) have shown an increase in bone density after six months6 and decreased bone loss after one7 or two8 years.

Other preliminary studies have reported that vitamin K supplementation increases bone formation in some women9 and that higher vitamin K intake correlates with greater bone mineral density.10 However, a double-blind study found that supplementing with 500 mcg of vitamin K1 per day for three years had no effect on bone mineral density, when compared with a placebo.11 Some doctors recommend 1 mg vitamin K1 to postmenopausal women as a way to help maintain bone mass, though optimal intake remains unknown.

Dose: 500 mcg per day of vitamin K1 In a double-blind trial, supplementing with vitamin K1 for three years appeared to slow the rate of progression of coronary artery calcification in elderly people who had preexisting coronary artery calcification. Participants in that study were randomly assigned to receive a multivitamin that contained 500 mcg per day of vitamin K1 or the same multivitamin without vitamin K1.1

Celiac Disease
Dose: Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner

The malabsorption that occurs in celiac disease can lead to multiple nutritional deficiencies. The most common nutritional problems in people with celiac disease include deficiencies of essential fatty acids, iron, vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, and folic acid.1Zinc malabsorption also occurs frequently in celiac disease2 and may result in zinc deficiency, even in people who are otherwise in remission.3 People with newly diagnosed celiac disease should be assessed for nutritional deficiencies by a doctor. Celiac patients who have not yet completely recovered should supplement with a high-potency multivitamin-mineral. Some patients may require even higher amounts of some of these vitamins and minerals-an issue that should be discussed with their healthcare practitioner. Evidence of a nutrient deficiency in a celiac patient is a clear indication for supplementation with that nutrient.

After commencement of a gluten-free diet, overall nutritional status gradually improves. However, deficiencies of some nutrients may persist, even in people who are strictly avoiding gluten. For example, magnesium deficiency was found in 8 of 23 adults with celiac disease who had been following a gluten-free diet and were symptom-free. When these adults were supplemented with magnesium for two years, their bone mineral density increased significantly.4

Crohn's Disease
Dose: 80 to 1,000 mcg daily

In people with Crohn's disease, vitamin K deficiency can result from malabsorption due to intestinal inflammation or bowel surgery, from chronic diarrhea, or from dietary changes necessitated by food intolerance. In addition, Crohn's disease is often treated with antibiotics that have the potential to kill beneficial vitamin K-producing bacteria in the intestines. Vitamin K levels were significantly lower in a group of people with Crohn's disease than in healthy people. Moreover, the rate of bone loss in the Crohn's disease patients increased with increasing degrees of vitamin K deficiency.1 When combined with earlier evidence that vitamin K is required to maintain healthy bones, this study suggests that vitamin K deficiency is a contributing factor to the accelerated bone loss that often occurs in people with Crohn's disease.

Morning Sickness
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Vitamin K and vitamin C, taken together, may provide relief of symptoms for some women. In one study, 91% of women who took 5 mg of vitamin K and 25 mg of vitamin C per day reported the complete disappearance of morning sickness within three days.1 Menadione was removed from the market a number of years ago because of concerns about potential toxicity. Although some doctors still use a combination of vitamin K1 (the most prevalent form of vitamin K in food) and vitamin C for morning sickness, no studies on this treatment have been done.

Vitamin K is needed for proper bone formation and blood clotting. In both cases, vitamin K does this by helping the body transport calcium. Vitamin K is used by doctors when treating an overdose of the drug warfarin. Also, doctors prescribe vitamin K to prevent excessive bleeding in people taking warfarin but requiring surgery.

There is promising preliminary evidence that vitamin K2 (not vitamin K1), may improve a group of blood disorders known as myelodysplastic syndromes,1 which carry a significantly increased risk of progression to acute myeloid leukemia.

          Used this product for my dry, hardened skin. Previously used vitamin E oil, which helped with moisture retention,but not skin softening. This moisturizing cream helped to soften my skin and eventually help the areas with extra wrinkles smooth into skin more like... regular skin.

          Improvement of Psoriasis less than 24 hr

              I have had psoriasis on my feet for 10 years. It comes and goes but I had a flare up a few months ago that made me see a dermatologist. The perscriptions I tried did not work and were very expensive. I began looking into alternative therapies and found that vitamin D cream might work. I decided to try this cream. I applied the moisturizer and wrapped my feet in plastic wrap yesterday afternoon. I did the same before bed last night. I am amazed at the improvement of my psoriasis in less than 24 hours.
