- Why is vitamin K important?
Vitamin K is essential for healthy bone formation and repair; it is involved in the synthesis of osteocalcin, the protein in bone tissue upon which calcium crystallizes. As vitamin K helps build bones, it also supports blood vessel health by removing calcium deposits from the vessels where they aren’t needed. Vitamin K then works with Vitamin D to increase calcium deposits in the bones, where calcium is needed most.
