Vitamin K Oxide Cream For Broken Blood Vessels
NOT: This is a fallacy and spending money will hel the economy but not your veins! ...Read more
No.: Vitamin k is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary for proper blood clotting. Spider veins are tiny dilated skin capillaries that are unsightly, and ranging in color from red to dark purple (depending on the flow rate and oxygenation of the blood within). Spider veins are not "broken" capillaries, just weakened (usually genetics, but aggravated by weight or pregnancy) vessels that look bad. ...Read more
Blue painful spider veins on right arm extending to palm. Wrist hurts when moving. Can chlorella herb cause this since it has lots of vitamin K in it?
Sounds more serious: This sounds serious and should be evaluated by a vascular or hand surgeon. ...Read more
No: Unsure what you mean by "weak blood vessels" but I will assume you have had bloody noses with minimal or no trauma. There are vascular complexes in the nasal septum that are subject to easy injury, especially if the weather is dry or you have allergies. Make sure your environment is humidified and that your blood pressure is OK. Some bleeding disorders (and meds like aspirin) can worsen it. ...Read more
What condition is accompanied by rupture of capillaries or blood vessels easily? What vitamins or nutients are needed to make the vessels stronger?
Bioflavonoids/Vit. C: The most important nutrients for vessel health are bioflavonoids & vit. C. Vitamin e & zinc are also important. Several herbs like horsechestnut, butcher's broom & gotu kola are beneficial. See http://www. Umm. Edu/altmed/articles/varicose-veins-000173.Htm for more info- though this is about varicose veins, these herbs & nutrients are good for vascular health even if you don't have varicose veins. ...Read more

How can vitamin K be an anticoagulant and at the same time vitamin K helps blood to clot (a coagulant)?
Likely to help: Besides playing a key role in forming blood clots, vitamin k plays a crucial role in calcium metabolism, directing calcium into our bones and preventing it from depositing in our arteries & soft tissues. Vit k has been shown to prevent atherosclerosis & has the potential to reverse it, though more research is needed to confirm this. See www. Newswithviews. Com/howenstine/james67.Htm. ...Read more
Is vitamin K supplement a blood thinner or a blood thickener? Should I take vitamin k2 supplement while I am taking vitamin D 2000IU supplement?
Neither: Hi. Vitamin K is required for gamma-carboxylation of glutamic acid in the clotting factors. Too little vit. K makes you unable to make the clotting factors. This is basically how warfarin works. But clotting factors are tightly regulated, and taking a vit. K supplement if you're not deficient will have no effect on clotting. ...Read more

It sounds like: You are buying it just to buy it...Maybe something you read? Vit k is needed for proper clotting and is not a supplement you need unless you have clotting issues and a hematologist has recommended it. Dark leafy greens contain vitamin k and it should be enough for your health. It is best to get our vitamins form foods first. Supplement for specific deficiencies. ...Read more
Neither: Vitamin k levels should not have any effect on angioplasty results. ...Read more
Clotting factors: Vitamin k is used to create several factors in the clotting cascade (the system that ends in a blood clot). If vitamin k isn't there, then those factors are deficient, and blood won't clot as well. This is why newborns get a vit k shot, to avoid something called "hemorrhagic disease of the newborn.". ...Read more
I am on low dose aspirin for MTHFR. Should I avoid prenatals with vitamin K since it works to clot the blood?
Vitamin K is ESSENTIAL for good health and your baby could have bleeding problems if you are deficient. While lack of Vit K increases bleeding, taking Vit K does NOT increase risk of clots. See http://bit. Ly/1nzsOh0 for more on K.
You should be taking the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid).

No known time: Vitamin k is important in the body for the formation of coagulation factors which will ultimately aid in the coagulation process. It's administration will help bleeding to stop if the person is deficient (and timing differs depending on the wound location, depth, etc) but this not always the case, as some bleedings are caused by other reasons. ...Read more
Confused. Does eating Broccoli & fish nuggets daily THIN blood? I thought Vitamin K thickened blood?
That's silly: Food choices have essentially no effect on coagulation parameters. A few vitamin-K-rich foods should be avoided if you are taking coumarin as an anticoagulant. Beyond this, ignore all "pop" advice about food choices -- they're entertainment at best, disinformation by people posing as your friends at worst. Your physician or a registered dietician are more reliable. ...Read more

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin. Thank you.
How to say this...: I'm glad you asked the question here. In 2006, someone in the not-so-mainstream world of unproven " biomedical" cures for autism, like treating yeast, thought that giving vit k would be curative. Later, someone decided that vitamin k shots given to newborns since i-don't- know-when were a cause of autism, claiming they were dissolved in a base. Or an acid. Or both. See www. Quackwatch. Com. ...Read more
Mom had massive p embolism & blood clot in leg due to leg procedure dr put on Coumadin (warfarin) & told to eat normal is that right ie vitamin k?
Yes: I usually tell patients starting warfarin to continue their usual eating habits. When people try new diets, that is when the warfarin effect will change. How much vitamin K one eats is less important than keeping it consistent. So don't try a new salad diet for example, and don't try cutting out all vitamin K either. Just keep intake steady, which is easiest when following usual diet. ...Read more
Can foods rich in vitamin K cause blood clots without any thrombophilia? I don't currently take Coumadin (warfarin) but I may have narrowing in subclavian vein.
Nope: Vitamin k is not thrombophiic.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have blood clot in my left leg so I stopped eating food with vitamin K and now my red blood cell count iron folate (folic acid) b 12 dropped?
K doesn't cause clot:
While Vit K is needed for blood to clot, avoiding K doesn't reduce the risk of clots! The only reason to avoid is if you're on warfarin as K can interfere with it, but research shows being on some K actually stabilizes the effects of warfarin. The important thing is to have a consistent amount & then adjust warfarin dose. See http://bit. Ly/1hHlMAv
Foods rich in K are good sources of iron/folate. ...Read more
Possibly: The so called "nitric acid pumps " available are suspect in my opinion about doing what you wish. I suggest, if you want to take something, get L arginine, known precursor to nitric oxide. 500 mg 2 times daily.
