Benefits of Vitamin K

Vitamin K is a fat soluble nutrient essential for blood clotting.

Here at Forest Whole Food we think being a ‘food detective’  is so important in today’s world.  Nutrition facts are fun once you start learning the ropes so we make sure we share as much information as possible.

Vitamin K actually comes in 3 forms which are quite simply called K1, K2 and K3.  About 90% of our dietary  source of Vitamin K are K1.  Vegetarian sources come from cauliflower, broccoli, dark green vegetables and pulses.  For omnivores egg yolk, liver and meat are also reliable sources of K1.

Vitamin K supports:

  • Normal blood clotting
  • Maintenance of bones

If you want to find foods that are a source of plant based Vitamin K per serving try sprouting our organic mung beans.
