A Green Monster’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition: Vitamin K


NutritionGuide_BackLink (1)




One of the most important vitamins for our bones is also one of the easiest to overlook. Vitamin K is even referred to as “the forgotten vitamin”, but is one of the key nutrients that helps our blood clot at the exact amount needed. This helps protect us during times of injury and also aids in overall blood flow. Vitamin K is also crucial to building and maintaining strong bones. It is one of the best nutrients to help protect against weakening and fractures and is found abundantly in nature. 

Vitamin K is also a fat-soluble vitamin, so it’s necessary that you eat healthy fats so you can get the most benefits. For those looking to keep their bones healthy to prevent osteoporosis, calcium, magnesium, boron, Vitamin D, and Vitamin K are essential.  Since a plant-based diet is full of foods that have most all these ingredients in the same foods, getting enough is essential (except for Vitamin D, which is best obtained by supplementation or the sun).

Check out some sources of Vitamin K in a plant-based diet below, learn more about this vitamin for your health, and also see some recipes with Vitamin K to cook your way to a strong and healthy body!
