Vitamin K helps build bone and slows bone loss by supporting the incorporation of calcium into bone structure and the activity of bone-forming cells. Thus, vitamin K reduces the risk or progression of osteoporosis. The human body needs vitamin K, that's the only way blood clotting can work. A vitamin K deficiency inhibits blood clotting, which can cause increased bleeding. This can only be prevented by an adequate supply of vitamin K. Interestingly enough, taking too much vitamin K will not do the opposite, the body will be able to make optimal use of vitamin K and keep blood clotting constantly in balance.
