Vitamin K helps blood to clot. It is a powerful antioxidant, perhaps more powerful than vitamin E.

Researchers at the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (California, United States) indicate that regular intake of vitamin K strengthens bones, prevents calcification of arteries and kidneys, cardiovascular diseases and possibly cancer.

It is also effective against the inflammation associated with arthritis and Alzheimer's disease.

Study results are published in the October issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

It is found in high concentrations in green leafy vegetables like spinach, chard and kale, cabbage, cauliflower, soybeans, and certain cereals.
