What is vitamin k?

An essential vitamin

Bone
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.

Dr. Benjamin Kalm answered:

What does vitamin k prevent?

Bleeding

Vitamin_k
Vitamin K is a cofactor in humans' ability to clot. When we don't have enough we have the potential to have severe bleeding. That is why brand new babies receive a dose of Vitamin K. Humans get most of their Vitamin K from bacteria in their intestines although it also comes from some foods.

Not normaly

Not at the normal dosage. Overdosing on vitamin K or chronically taking more than the RDA can cause liver damage and suppress hunger (anorexia).

Is there vitamin k in bergamot?

Not so much

Tea
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 or another blood thinning medication, your doctor will want to keep your bleeding time stable.

Why is Vitamin k given at birth?

Bleeding issues

Vitamin_k
The human clotting mechanism is a balance of factors and co-factors.It takes about 8 days for the untreated kid to establish a competent system of clotting aided by gut bacteria that help us convert dietary Vit K to a usable form. Before then there is a slight but real risk of intracranial hemorrhage or other bleeding brought on by the stresses of childbirth.The shot builds up clotting immediately

What causes vitamin k deficiency?

Diet or Antibiotics

Diet
The vast majority of our Vitamin K is actually produced by symbiotic bacteria in our intestines. So, if one has recently had a bout of heavy antibiotic use (which kills off both "good and "bad" bacteria in the body), then Vitamin K deficiency can result. Poor diet can also lead to this deficiency. A deficiency in Vit. K most often results in easy bleeding/hemorrhage susceptibility.
