[10 ways to eat a balanced diet containing vitamins and minerals for beautiful skin] Part 8 **Incorporate vitamin K**

Vitamin K supports blood coagulation and maintains clear skin without dullness. These include cabbage, spinach, and natto.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that is involved in blood clotting and bone health. Below are the main effects of vitamin K:

  1. **Blood Clotting Support:** Vitamin K is known as an essential element in blood clotting. In particular, it contributes to the production of proteins called clotting factors, which help blood clot properly. This helps ensure proper wound closure in the event of bleeding or injury.

  1. **Bone Health:** Vitamin K fixes calcium in bones, contributing to bone formation and maintaining bone density. Adequate vitamin K intake is associated with the prevention of bone fractures and osteoporosis.

  1. **Vascular Health:** Vitamin K plays a role in inhibiting calcium deposition in blood vessels. This may reduce the progression of arteriosclerosis and support cardiovascular health.

  1. **Cell survival and proliferation:** Vitamin K also contributes to the normal functioning of cells and is particularly involved in cell survival and proliferation.

Vitamin K is mainly obtained from food. The following are examples of foods high in vitamin K:

- **Green and yellow vegetables:** Spinach, kale, lettuce, broccoli, etc.

- **Oils and fats:** Olive oil, soybean oil, fish oil.

- **Animal foods:** Liver, egg yolks, meat.

Vitamin K comes in two main forms: K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone). Vitamin K1 is mainly found in abundance in green and yellow vegetables, while vitamin K2 is found in fermented foods, liver, and fatty fish.

Although vitamin K supplements are sometimes used, it is generally recommended that you get adequate amounts from your regular diet. You should consult your doctor regarding vitamin K intake, especially if you are receiving anticoagulant therapy.
