Vitamin K

Vitamin K (phylloquinone) is stored in the liver like other vitamins, and is essential to normal liver functioning. Helps the body to produce prothrombin, which regulates the time it takes to clot the blood, and miscarriages. It is easier for the body to absorb when gelatin is in the diet, but is of no value when one consumes aspirin, rancid fats, mineral oils, antibiotics, air pollution, and is subject to radiation.

Symptoms of deficiency in vitamin K include Hemorrhaging, diarrhea, frequent nose bleeds, colitis, prolonged blood-clotting time, behavioral disorders, and miscarriages.

It is better assimilated by the body in the presence of manganese, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamin A.

The benefits of vitamin K are eliminated by Contraceptive pill, chlorine, mineral oils, and ultra violet light.

    Cereals – Cornmeal, oatmeal, wheat germ, whole wheat.
