Vitamin K Supplements Reduce Factures

By Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy, Health Coach - June 1, 2009

  • Vitamin K supplementation improves bone strength and reduced fractures in postmenopausal women. 

A review of clinical research confirmed that vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 supplements improved bone strength and reduced the incidence of fractures in postmenopausal women.

High and low doses of the supplements provided a modest increase in bone mineral density. All doses had inconsistent effects on bone growth and breakdown.

Like vitamin D, vitamin K is a popular research topic for many health issues including osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, cystic fibrosis and Crohn’s disease.

Therapeutic vitamin K doses are available as a single supplement or in some of our osteoporosis calcium supplements.

Dietary sources of vitamin K include:

  •  Leafy, dark green vegetables
    • Spinach
    • Kale
    • Collards
    • Broccoli
  • Oils
    • Soybean oil
    • Olive oil
