Health Benefits on Vitamin K

Good Old Acidophilus Milk

One of my favorite episodes of two and a half men is where Alan constantly request Bertha to pick up acidophilus milk from the supermarket . He goes into this bit as he explains to Charlie how its good for the intestinal tract , and good for flora.

It's a cute episode episode with Alan having his hissy fit over the acidophilus milk and Bertha to spite him doesn't honor his request. This was the first time I had ever heard of such a milk, and really didn't believe there was such a thing.

While I was reading over materials for vitamin K guess what word pops up?

Acidophilus Milk

As it turns out it enhances the body's natural production of vitamin K, and yes its great for the intestinal tract.

The whole time while viewing the program I was thinking this has to be a joke, and I also wondered how many other people drink it?

The Use of Coumadin

An important point of interest for patients who are prescribed medications such as blood thinners more specifically Warfarin. Warfarin interferes with the absorption of vitamin K. Those who are using this type of medication should consult with their doctor before using their therapeutic doses of of vitamin K.

On a different note vitamin K is responsible for healthy liver function ,

Vitamin K and Blood Clotting

One of the basic, and major jobs of Vitamin K is to help the blood to clot. In some of the information I have read, it suggest giving vitamin K to patients before surgery to help the blood reduce blood loss. I wonder if this is practiced in the Western Hemsphere?

Good News For PMS Suffers

Years ago when I worked for a title company, the girls always had girl talk about babies, and PMS. I had listened to story after story of women who suffer from PMS and having heavy menustrual cycles. I grow tiresome of their same complaints about bloating, and PMSing. I use to tease them, and tell them they were using it as an excuse to be a witch.

By now I am sure you are saying what does PMS have to do with vitamin K. after reading about vitamins K, I was surprised to learn that this nutrient can ease women's suffering of PMS, and it can help reduce those that suffer with a heavy flow.
