- fat-soluble vitamin that the human body requires to complete synthesis of certain
Vitamin K is a group of structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamin that the human body requires to complete synthesis of certain proteins that are prerequisites for blood coagulation and which the body also needs for controlling binding of calcium in bones and other tissues. The vitamin K-related modification of the proteins allows them to bind calcium ions, which they cannot do otherwise.
In nature, it is present in two forms - vitamin K1-filokinone (most of it is in salads, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, spelled, cabbage, soybeans and liver, and some in soya and olive oil) and vitamin K2- menakinone in animal fats, and in the body it is produced by intestinal bacteria). In addition to these two, we also know synthetic shapes that have labels from K3 to K7.
