Not so much: Bergamot is a type of orange that grows in italy, and is often used to flavor tea. Green teas may be rich in vitamin k -- not so much the bergamot in it, though. If you're on Coumadin (warfarin) or another blood thinning medication, your doctor will want to keep your bleeding time stable.

Can be: Bergamot is a plant that produces a type of citrus fruit. Oil taken from the peel of the fruit is used to make medicine. Some people treat a skin condition called psoriasis by applying bergamot oil directly to the skin and then shining long-wave ultraviolet (uv) light on the affected area. Vitamin k can be added to bergamot.

An essential vitamin: Vitamin k is essential for our blood to form clots and stop us from bleeding. It may also be involved in bone health. Vitamin k is in kale, spinach, turnip greens, collards, swiss chard, mustard greens, parsley, romaine, green leaf lettuce, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. The bacteria in your intestinal tract make some vitamin k also.
