VITAMIN B 6 refers to several PICOLINES (especially PYRIDOXINE; PYRIDOXAL; & PYRIDOXAMINE) that are efficiently converted by the body to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into PYRIDOXAMINE phosphate. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990). Most of vitamin B6 is eventually degraded to PYRIDOXIC ACID and excreted in the urine.

Factor VII as a marker of hepatocellular synthetic function in liver disease. (1/237)

Factor VII levels have been measured in 100 patients with liver disease following parenteral vitamin K1 therapy. There was good agreement between specific factor VII measurements and the one-stage prothrombin time apart from six patients with compensated cirrhosis in whom the prothrombin time was prolonged despite the presence of normal factor VII levels. A mean activity of 58% was found in patients with cirrhosis. Cirrhotic patients with features of hepatic decompensation had a significantly lower mean level of activity (40%) than the "contrast" patients with surgical obstruction of the major bile ducts (93%). Patients with chronic active liver disease had moderate depression of factor VII levels and those with non-cirrhotic liver damage had mean activities similar to the contrast group. Factor VII levels could not be correlated with BSP retention but there was a correlation with serum albumin concentration. It is concluded that the prothrombin time using Quick test with a standardized thromboplastin showing good sensitivity to factor VII, eg, the Manchester reagent (BCT), provides a reliable index of coagulability in chronic liver disease, and specific factor VII assays are not indicated.  (+info)

Effect of vitamin K1 on glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficient neonatal erythrocytes in vitro. (3/237)

AIM: To determine whether vitamin K1, which is routinely administered to neonates, could act as an exogenous oxidising agent and be partly responsible for haemolysis in glucose-6-phosphat-dehydrogenase (G-6-PD). METHODS: G-6-PD deficient (n = 7) and control (n = 10) umbilical cord blood red blood cells were incubated in vitro with a vitamin K1 preparation (Konakion). Two concentrations of Vitamin K1 were used, both higher than that of expected serum concentrations, following routine injection of 1 mg vitamin K1. Concentrations of reduced glutathione (GSH) and methaemoglobin, indicators of oxidative red blood cell damage, were determined before and after incubation, and the mean percentage change from baseline calculated. RESULTS: Values (mean (SD)) for GSH, at baseline, and after incubation with vitamin K1 at concentrations of 44 and 444 microM, respectively, and percentage change from baseline (mean (SD)) were 1.97 + 0.31 mumol/g haemoglobin, 1.89 +/- 0.44 mumol/g (-4.3 +/- 13.1%), and 1.69 +/- 0.41 mumol/g (-14.5 +/- 9.3%) for the G-6-PD deficient red blood cells, and 2.27 +/- 0.31 mumol/g haemoglobin, 2.09 +/- 0.56 mumol/g (-7.2 +/- 23.2%), and 2.12 +/- 0.38 mumol/g (-6.0 + 14.1%) for the control cells. For methaemoglobin (percentage of total haemoglobin), the corresponding values were 2.01 +/- 0.53%, 1.93 +/- 0.37% (-0.6 +/- 17.4%) and 2.06 +/- 0.43% (5.7 +/- 14.2%) for the G-6-PD deficient red blood cells, and 1.56 +/- 0.74%, 1.70 +/- 0.78% (12.7 +/- 21.9%), and 1.78 +/- 0.71% (20.6 +/- 26.8%) for the control red blood cells. None of the corresponding percentage changes from baseline was significantly different when G-6-PD deficient and control red blood cells were compared. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that G-6-PD deficient red blood cells are not at increased risk of oxidative damage from vitamin K1.  (+info)

The influence of vitamin K1 on the structure and phase behaviour of model membrane systems. (4/237)

Vitamin K1 is a component of the Photosystem I of plants which constitutes the major dietary form of vitamin K. The major function of this vitamin is to be cofactor of the microsomal gamma-glutamylcarboxylase. Recently, novel roles for this vitamin in the membrane have been postulated. To get insight into the influence of vitamin K1 on the phospholipid component of the membrane, we have studied the interaction between vitamin K1 and model membranes composed of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) and dielaidoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DEPE). We utilized high-sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry and small-angle X-ray diffraction techniques. Vitamin K1 affected the thermotropic properties of the phospholipids, broadened and shifted the transitions to lower temperatures, and produced the appearance of several peaks in the thermograms. The presence of the vitamin gave rise to the formation of vitamin-rich domains which were immiscible with the bulk phospholipid in both the gel and the liquid-crystalline phases. Vitamin K1 was unable to alter the lamellar organization of DMPC, but we found that it produced an increase in the interlamellar repeat spacing of DMPC at 10 degrees C. Interestingly, vitamin K1 promoted the formation of inverted hexagonal HII structures in the DEPE system. We discuss the possible implications that these vitamin K1-phospholipid interactions might have with respect to the biological function of the vitamin.  (+info)

Tissue phylloquinone and menaquinones in rats are affected by age and gender. (5/237)

Phylloquinone and ten menaquinones (MK-1-MK-10) were measured in liver and eight extrahepatic tissues from male and female rats at 3, 12 and 24 mo of age. Phylloquinone and menaquinones showed characteristic tissue distribution. In liver, all 11 vitamers of vitamin K assayed were present in varying concentrations with phylloquinone and MK-6 the major forms. The only forms of vitamin K found in extrahepatic tissues were phylloquinone, MK-4 and MK-6. Brain contained only MK-4 and traces of phylloquinone. No significant gender difference was observed for phylloquinone except in heart at 3 mo of age (P +info)

Comparison of phylloquinone bioavailability from food sources or a supplement in human subjects. (6/237)

Phylloquinone (K) absorption was assessed in 22- to 30-y-old human subjects consuming a standard test meal [402 kcal (1682 kJ), 27% energy from fat]. The absorption of phylloquinone, measured over a 9-h period as the area under the curve (AUC), was higher (P < 0.01) after the consumption of a 500- microgram phylloquinone tablet [27.55 +/- 10.08 nmol/(L. h), n = 8] than after the ingestion of 495 microgram phylloquinone as 150 g of raw spinach [4.79 +/- 1.11 nmol/(L. h), n = 3]. Less phylloquinone (P < 0.05) was absorbed from 50 g of spinach (AUC = 2.49 +/- 1.11 nmol/(L. h) than from 150 g of spinach. Absorption of phylloquinone from fresh spinach (165 microgram K), fresh broccoli (184 microgram K) and fresh romaine lettuce (179 microgram K) did not differ. There was no difference in phylloquinone absorption from fresh or cooked broccoli or from fresh romaine lettuce consumed with a meal containing 30 or 45% energy as fat.  (+info)

Neuroprotective effects of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitors in transient focal cerebral ischemia of rats. (7/237)

AIM: To explore the role of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) in focal cerebral ischemia with reperfusion injury. METHODS: Male Wistar rats underwent 3.5-h of temporary middle cerebral artery occlusion by intraluminal suture. Infarction volume was showed with 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) staining and quantitated by image analysis system, neurologic scores were determined with a 0-5 grading scale. RESULTS: 3-Aminobenzamide (3-AB) 10 mg.kg-1 or nicotinamide (Nic) at 20 mg.kg-1 showed potent neuroprotective effects within 0-6 h, neurologic deficits were attenuated. With the increasing dose of PARP inhibitors, beneficial effects were compromised, particularly, administration of Nic 60 mg.kg-1 at the onset of reperfusion drastically accelerated brain damage. Phytomenadione, a selective inhibitor of mono (ADP-ribosyl) transferase, had little effect on infarction volume. CONCLUSION: Transient incomplete inhibition of PARP provides a neuroprotective effects against cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury, with a relatively wide therapeutic window, whereas severe inhibition of this enzyme, especially in reperfusion phase, is detrimental.  (+info)

Response of vitamin K status to different intakes and sources of phylloquinone-rich foods: comparison of younger and older adults. (8/237)

BACKGROUND: Phylloquinone, found in dark-green vegetables and certain plant oils, is the primary dietary source of the fat-soluble vitamin K. Limited data suggest that the relative bioavailability of phylloquinone from vegetables is lower than that from a supplement. This finding is relevant to the maintenance of optimal vitamin K status. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare, in younger and older adults, the relative bioavailability of phylloquinone from a vegetable with that of a fortified oil. DESIGN: In a crossover design with three 15-d residency periods in a metabolic unit, younger and older men and women (n = 36) consumed a mixed diet containing 100 microg phylloquinone/d. During 2 residency periods, the mixed diet was supplemented for 5 d with either broccoli (377 microg phylloquinone/d; broccoli diet) or phylloquinone-fortified oil (417 microg/d; oil diet). The relative bioavailability of phylloquinone was defined by the difference in plasma phylloquinone, percentage serum undercarboxylated osteocalcin (%ucOC), and urinary gamma-carboxyglutamic acid in response to 5 d of supplementation. RESULTS: For both younger and older adults, plasma phylloquinone concentrations were higher (P < 0.001) and %ucOC values were lower (P = 0.001) after the broccoli and oil diets than after the mixed diet only. Overall, the response to broccoli supplementation was not significantly different from the response to the fortified oil in either age group. Urinary gamma-carboxyglutamic acid did not change in response to supplementation. CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant difference in the relative bioavailability of phylloquinone, as evidenced by the lack of a significant difference in plasma phylloquinone and %ucOC between the 2 groups after either the broccoli or oil diets for younger and older adults.  (+info)

Objectives: Vitamin K has bone and cartilage effects, and previously shown to be associated with radiographic osteoarthritis. We evaluated vitamin Ks effect on hand osteoarthritis in a randomised controlled trial.. Methods: This was an ancillary study to a randomised controlled trial assessing the effects of phylloquinone supplementation (vitamin K arm) versus placebo on bone loss and vascular calcification among older adults regardless of their vitamin K status. At the final 3-year study visit, we assessed the effects of vitamin K versus placebo on hand x-ray features of osteoarthritis using logistic regression and intention to treat, and also restricted analysis to the subgroup that had insufficient vitamin K concentrations at baseline.. Results: This ancillary study had 378 participants (193 in vitamin K arm, 185 in placebo arm). There were no effects of randomisation to vitamin K for radiographic osteoarthritis outcomes. Those with insufficient vitamin K at baseline who attained sufficient ...
Vitamin K, the generic name for a family of compounds with a common chemical structure of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods and is available as a dietary supplement [1]. These compounds include phylloquinone (vitamin K1) and a series of menaquinones (vitamin K2) [2]. Menaquinones have unsaturated isoprenyl side chains and are designated as MK-4 through MK-13, based on the length of their side chain [1,2]. MK-4, MK-7, and MK-9 are the most well-studied menaquinones.. Phylloquinone is present primarily in green leafy vegetables and is the main dietary form of vitamin K [3]. Menaquinones, which are predominantly of bacterial origin, are present in modest amounts in various animal-based and fermented foods [1,4]. Almost all menaquinones, in particular the long-chain menaquinones, are also produced by bacteria in the human gut [5,6]. MK-4 is unique in that it is produced by the body from phylloquinone via a conversion process that does not ...

Anatagonists of vitamin K-warfarin, phenylindanedione the 2-chloro analogue of vitamin K1, and tetrachloropyridinol-blocked prothrombin synthesis completely and without a lag period in the rat. Experiments to determine the mode of action of the antagonists indicated that they could be divided into two groups. The inhibition of prothrombin synthesis by all four antagonists was reversed by vitamin K1, but the inhibition in Sprague-Dawley rats by group I (warfarin and phenylindanedione) was not reversed by phylloquinone epoxide, beause the group I compounds inhibited the conversion of [3H] phylloquinone epoxide to the active vitamin, [3H]vitamin K1, and caused the accumulation of [3H] phylloquinone epoxide in rats that had received injections of the tritiated vitamin. It is proposed that group I compounds were ineffective in blocking prothrombin synthesis in warfarin-resistant rats because in these animals the conversion from epoxide to K1 is not as sensitive as in normal animals. Consequently the ...

Ubiquinone (UQ), also called coenzyme Q, and plastoquinone (PQ) are electron carriers in oxidative phosphorylation and photosynthesis, respectively. The quinoid nucleus of ubiquinone is derived from the shikimate pathway; 4-hydroxybenzoate is directly formed from chorismate in bacteria, while it can be formed from either chorismate or tyrosine in yeast. The following biosynthesis of terpenoid moiety involves reactions of prenylation, decarboxylation, and three hydroxylations alternating with three methylations. The order of these reactions are somewhat different between bacteria and yeast. Phylloquinone (vitamin K1), menaquinone (vitamin K2), and tocopherol (vitamin E) are fat-soluble vitamins. Phylloquinone is a compound present in all photosynthetic plants serving as a cofactor for photosystem I-mediated electron transport. Menaquinone is an obligatory component of the electron-transfer pathway in bacteria ...

Ill take vitamin pills. Kenny said to the good doctor.. Well, thats an idea, said Dr. Wise. Certainly if you are unable to get good, whole food you should take vitamin pills but I recommend you get your vitamins from food. Our bodies respond better to nutrients like vitamins and minerals if they come in food. They tend to work better when they are delivered naturally. Natural foods carry vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that work together as a team to make us healthy.. Oh, said Kenny thoughtfully.. Ill tell you what, Ill set you up with a dietician who can give you some good ideas about how to get more vitamins and minerals into your diet, o.k.. I guess. o.k.. A couple of months later Kennys nose bleeds and excess bruising had stopped.

Nutrient 950 with Vitamin K Multivitamin/mineral formula with vitamin K and 1,000 i.u. vitamin D This formula provides our Nutrient 950 without iron formula, enhanced with vitamin K1 and vitamin K2. Vitamin K1, phylloquinone, is the most common form of vitamin K and is found in plants and green vegetables. This formula also provides the most active and bioavailable forms of vitamin K2, menaquinone-7 (MK-7) and menaquinone-4 (MK-4). Studies indicate that vitamin K1 and MK-4 are primarily concentrated in the liver, while MK-7 concentrates in extra-hepatic tissues. Vitamin K2 encourages osteocalcin to bind to calcium and promote healthy bone mineralization. Vitamin K2, as MK-7, is especially important for maintaining healthy arterial calcium metabolism, supporting healthy vascular elasticity. Recent studies indicate that vitamin D also potentiates the activity of vitamin K, providing synergistic support for bone health and blood vessel function. This formula provides 1,000 i.u. vitamin D.
Vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin, is absorbed in the presence of bile, pancreatic juices, and is enhanced by dietary fat. Once absorbed, vitamin K is transported by chylomicrons which are microscopic lipid particles that transport fat-soluble components through the lymph. Vitamin K is moderately stable to heat, but unstable to light, acid, and alkali conditions. Vitamin K is found in nature in two forms㰥, also called phylloquinone, is found in plants; and vitamin K2, also called menaquinone, which can be synthesized by many bacteria. Vitamin K3, menadione, is a synthetic form of vitamin K which is manmade. Vitamin K, a group of three related substances, is the last of the fat-soluble vitamins, completing the family that also includes vitamins A, D, E, and F. This nutrient, both found in nature and made in the body, helps phylloquinone, the natural vitamin K found in alfalfa and other foods.It was discovered in Denmark and labeled vitamin K for the Danish word Koagulation.

It is confusing when doctors dont agree. Ask your doctors to talk to each other to reach a consensus on whether or not you should take a supplement with vitamin K. Until then, caution would be the better choice and not take a supplement with vitamin K. Ask a pharmacist at your favorite store for their recommendation of a supplement without vitamin K.. The biggest issue with coumadin and vitamin K is you need to eat a consistent amount of vitamin K containing foods every day. In other words, one day, dont eat lots of green leafy vegetables and the next few days go without. It would be more difficult to regulate your clotting time with varying vitamin K intakes. Go back and read the vitamin K topic as there is a list of high vitamin K foods. Try to eat about the same amount of vitamin K every day.. ...
Vitamin K is mostly known for clotting blood. Other vitamins, such as vitamins A, C and E receive recognition for acting as antioxidants and serving multiple purposes. Without enough vitamin K, you could bleed to death over a simple cut. Vitamin K helps reduce the risk of bleeding from various illnesses such as liver disease, long-term use of antibiotics, and malabsorption syndromes. Vitamin K helps your bones use calcium, which can help prevent certain conditions such as osteoporosis.. Vitamin K may help keep blood pressure lower by preventing mineralization, where minerals build up in the arteries. This enables the heart to pump blood freely through the body.. Mineralization naturally occurs with age, and it is a major risk factor for heart disease. Adequate intake of vitamin K has also been shown to lower the risk of stroke.. A new 2014 study on vitamin K confirms that ample vitamin K intake can indeed help you live longer.2 In a group of more than 7,000 people at high risk for cardiovascular ...
The VKOR is the crucial enzyme in vitamin K metabolism in humans. It enables Vitamin Ks recycling after it has been oxidized in the carboxylase reaction through which it activates Gla-proteins. KH2 is a cofactor in this crucial step. Vitamin K2 carboxylates the Gla-proteins of osteocalcin to stimulate osteoblasts to make new bone and prevent osteoporosis. Because of the VKOR recycling, the human dietary requirement for vitamin K is extremely low. It is just 45 mcg/day when things are working optimally. Of course if the gut is not working well for any reason, the dietary needs can skyrocket. The gut microbiome can make vitamin K, provided there is a normal gut flora state. From the gut microflora, the vitamin K concentrates in the liver for storage until it is needed. Storage is small, because Vitamin K2 is used rapidly in the human system. Vitamin K2 is absorbed from the jejunum and ileum. As with other fat-soluble vitamins, absorption depends on the presence of bile and pancreatic juices, and ...
Increasing vitamin K intake by diet and supplements is safe for most people. The main exception is those taking dangerous vitamin K antagonist drugs such as warfarin for controlling their coagulation. These drugs interfere with the action of vitamin K in the body, thus slowing blood clotting but also unfortunately damaging bone maintenance and vitamin K protective functions in the brain and likely other organs such as the pancreas and the salivary glands. K2 function in the salivary glands is particularly interesting as it appears to be connected to remineralization processes that allow saliva to repair weak or damaged tooth surfaces. This is thought to explain why dentist Weston Price observed that populations that have diets poor in vitamin K (particularly the at-the-time unknown vitamin K2 which he called Activator X) tend to have more dental cavities.. For the most part, mainstream diet and nutrition discussion focuses almost exclusively on vitamin K1 that you find primarily in plant based ...

The healthy status of this cohort may explain a lack of effect of vitamin K supplementation on cytokine concentrations ...
Phenytoin (Dilantin) -- Phenytoin interferes with the bodys ability to use vitamin K. Taking anticonvulsants (such as phenytoin) during pregnancy or while breastfeeding may deplete vitamin K in newborns.. Warfarin (Coumadin) -- Vitamin K reduces the effects of the blood-thinning medication warfarin, rendering the medication ineffective. Vitamin K should not be taken while taking warfarin, and foods containing high amounts of vitamin K should be avoided.. Orlistat (Xenical, alli) and Olestra -- Orlistat, a medication used for weight loss, and olestra, a substance added to certain food products, prevent the absorption of fat and can reduce the bodys absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. The Food and Drug Administration now requires that vitamin K and other fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, and E) be added to food products containing olestra. In addition, physicians who prescribe orlistat add a multivitamin with fat soluble vitamins to the regimen.. The fact that vitamin K is now added to ...
As for a clinically useful dosage of vitamin K2, some studies - including the Rotterdam study37 - have shown as little as 45 mcg per day is sufficient. As a general guideline, I recommend getting around 150 mcg of vitamin K2 per day. Others recommend slightly higher amounts; upward of 180 to 200 mcg. You can obtain healthy amounts of K2 by eating 15 grams (half an ounce) of natto each day, or fermented vegetables. If you fermented them using a starter culture designed with vitamin K2-producing bacteria, 1 ounce will give you about 200 to 250 mcgs. If you are taking an oral vitamin D3 supplement, you may also need more vitamin K2, in order to maintain a healthy ratio. While the ideal or optimal ratios between vitamin D and vitamin K2 have yet to be elucidated, Rheaume-Bleue (see featured video) suggests taking 100 mcg of vitamin K2 for every 1,000 IUs of vitamin D you take. If you opt for a vitamin K2 supplement, make sure its MK-7. Also remember to take it with fat since its fat-soluble and ...
The skeletal system is considered an endocrine organ today. Associations between bone Gla proteins, body mass index and insulin resistance are intriguing novel field due to being possible explanations for the interactions between bone and endocrine system. The aim of the present study was to investigate the associations between insulin resistance and body mass index (BMI) with plasma osteocalcin, phylloquinone levels and dietary vitamin K intakes in healthy non-obese adults. This cross-sectional study was conducted with 77 healthy non-obese adults. Anthropometric measurements and 24-hour food consumption record were taken from each individual. Blood glucose, insulin, osteocalcin (OC), undercarboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC), vitamin K levels were analyzed. The homeostasis model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) value was calculated. Multiple linear regression models were performed using the backward method in order to determine the significant predictors of BMI and HOMA-IR. Mean age and ...
Vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin synthesized by plants, is found in large quantities within green leafy vegetables, such as collard, mustard, turnip and spinach. These greens are commonly cooked with fat to enhance flavor. The vitamin K in these greens can leach out during cooking into the liquid portion of the pot, which is referred to as potlicker. Vitamin K activates clotting factors (II, VII, IX, and X,), which can lead to the formation of a thromboembolism (blood clot). People at a higher risk of forming blood clots are often prescribed warfarin, an anti-coagulant that acts as a competitive inhibitor of vitamin K. Due to its content of vitamin K, the consumption of potlicker can potentially cause interactions on the anti-coagulant drug warfarin, and thereby counteract the drugs effect. This study seeks to determine if the amount of vitamin K leached from cooked greens into potlicker is dependent upon the amount of fat in the cooking solution and if the amount of vitamin K leached depends upon the
Once your baby is born the doctors and nurses will want to give your newborn a shot of vitamin K. This is done to prevent Hemorrhagic Disease of the Newborn. This effects the bloods ability to clot and can lead to internal bleeding. While this is a rare disease with only 0.25 percent to 1.7 percent of infants being effected, the standard protocol is to inject every newborn baby with vitamin K.. The vitamin K shot contains 20,000 times the needed dose for an infant. Why are we injecting a newborn with 20,000 times the amount they need?! This seems insane to me! While the vitamin K injection is helpful in certain circumstances, it is not needed for every. single. newborn. When my first baby was born, via c section, we initially declined the vitamin K shot. She did have bruising around her umbilical cord and because of this we decided to give her the vitamin K shot when she was a day old. In case there was internal bleeding, the vitamin K shot would help her blood to clot. Our second child had no ...
Vitamin K2 or menaquinone (/ˌmɛnəˈkwɪnoʊn/) has nine related compounds, generally subdivided into the short-chain menaquinones (with MK-4 as the most important member) and the long-chain menaquinones, of which MK-7, MK-8 and MK-9 are nutritionally the most recognized. Vitamin K2, the main storage form in animals, has several subtypes, which differ in isoprenoid chain length. These vitamin K2 homologues are called menaquinones, and are characterized by the number of isoprenoid residues in their side chains. Menaquinones are abbreviated MK-n, where M stands for menaquinone, the K stands for vitamin K, and the n represents the number of isoprenoid side chain residues. For example, menaquinone-4 (abbreviated MK-4) has four isoprene residues in its side chain. Menaquinone-4 (also known as menatetrenone from its four isoprene residues) is the most common type of vitamin K2 in animal products since MK-4 is normally synthesized from vitamin K1 in certain animal tissues (arterial walls, pancreas, ...
Vitamin K (specifically the MK-7 form of vitamin K2) is a critical co-factor for converting inactive uc-MGP into its active form, which inhibits calcification of arteries and other soft tissues, the researchers explained.. The recognition of functional vitamin K insufficiency in relation to calcification and resultant CV disease has been held back by a lack of distinction by many Western health authorities between vitamin K1 and K2, suggest the researchers. Thus, at public health level, insufficient recognition may be given to the increasing body of evidence for bone and heart health benefits of K2. Additionally, recommended vitamin K intake is often based purely on K1 and therefore may be sub-optimal for other functions such as bone health and prevention of calcification, they explain.. In the UK, NHS Choices​ makes no distinction between the two forms of vitamin K (let alone K2 subtypes), but describes blood clotting as the vitamins primary function. (Coagulation properties are widely ...

Aids blood clot formation - Vitamin Ks name provides us with a clue as to its main biological function: The K in vitamin K is derived from the German word koagulation, from which we get the world coagulation. Yes, vitamin K is a compound that helps at least 12 proteins in our blood to coagulate by binding themselves to calcium ions, an extremely complex process that helps prevent excessive bleeding when our skin gets damaged. Consequently, having enough vitamin K in our systems can guard us from a host of conditions associated with thin blood such as nosebleeds, easy bruising, heavy menstrual bleeding, blood in the stools or urine, and bleeding gums. Moreover, vitamin K also plays a role in preventing blood clotting when it is inappropriate or dangerous, such as the clotting of blood inside arteries - a leading cause of coronary heart disease.. Maintains bone health - Vitamin K helps to activate osteocalcin, a protein that is needed for the mineralization of bone (a process whereby ...
Vitamin K reduced bone fractures, protected bone health and lowered risk for heart disease, in three new studies. In a review of bone-fracture studies published between 1945 and 2005, researchers reporting in the Archives of Internal Medicine identified seven randomized controlled trials where participants had taken vitamin K2 supplements for more than six months. Researchers combined the data and found that compared to placebo, those who had taken vitamin K2 were 60% less likely to fracture the spine, 77% less likely to fracture the hip and 81% less likely to have any type of non-spinal fracture. The scientists also noted that all but one of 13 vitamin K clinical trials, including the seven fracture studies, found that those who had taken vitamins K1 and K2 had less bone loss compared to placebo.. As blood-plasma levels of vitamin K1 decreased, the spaces between joints decreased. In an osteoarthritis study, researchers analyzed 314 men and 358 women with an average age of 65.6, who were in ...
A recent study published in the scientific journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that a lack of adequate vitamin K levels was associated with poor outcomes in COVID-19 patients. The researchers identified an increased need for vitamin K during a COVID-19 illness and noted that depletion or deficiency of vitamin K can have devastating consequences in the lungs.. Vitamin K, a nutrient found in abundance in fresh grapes, plays a critical role in blood clotting including maintaining the balance of both pro- and anti-clotting factors. Low levels of vitamin K may upset this balance resulting in a greater tendency for blood to form clots. While COVID-19 is known first as a respiratory infection, higher instances of blood clots have been observed and worsen patient outcomes. Vitamin K is also involved in inhibiting soft tissue calcification and elastic fiber degradation. Coronary calcification is linked to a higher risk of blood clots, and elastic fiber degradation can harm the integrity of lung ...

Affect on Heart Health: The body produces Matrix Gla Protein (MGP), a K-dependent protein that is the most potent natural inhibitor of calcification known today.1 But in order to perform this function, MGP needs to be activated. When the body has adequate Vitamin K2 (specifically as menaquinone-7, or MK-7, as it is the most biologically active and available form of Vitamin K2), MGP repels calcium from depositing in the arteries and blood vessels, returning it to the bloodstream so it can be utilized by other systems, such as building strong, dense bones.. A 3-year study (using a specific brand of Vitamin K2 as MK-7) on 244 healthy postmenopausal women provided a breakthrough demonstration of Vitamin K2s affect to heart health. The group was randomly assigned to take a nutritional dose (180 mcg) of Vitamin K2 as MK-7 daily for 3 years, or placebo capsules. After three years of treatment, the Stiffness Index ß in the MK-7 group had decreased significantly after compared to the slight increase in ...

Giving vitamin K1 at 200 ug and 5000 ug per day appeared to have a positive effect on bone (1,2). Subjects treated with 200 ug showed a continuous significant increase in BMD over 6 months at the ultradistal radius. Fracture incidence was lower with a 5000 ug vitamin K1 treatment despite no effect on bone density. Vitamin Ks effect may have been on bone microarchitecture. However, since very few subjects had fractures, the observed difference in fracture rate may have occurred by chance. In a third study (3) where vitamin D status was not assessed, 1000 ug of vitamin K1 had no effect on BMD. Finally in a fourth study (4), 500 ug vitamin K1 had no effect on BMD. Larger trials including a range of K1 doses. with fracture as an endpoint and side effect monitoring, are needed ...

To study the correlations between serum osteocalcin and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes, 66 cases were collected to determine total osteocalcin, undercarboxylated osteocalcin, fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin, and HbA1c. Osteocalcin concentrations were compared between groups of different levels of HbA1c, and parameters of glucose metabolism were compared between groups of different levels of total osteocalcin and undercarboxylated osteocalcin. The relationship between osteocalcin and parameters of glucose metabolism was also analyzed. We found that the total osteocalcin concentration of high-HbA1c group was significantly lower than that of low-HbA1c group. The fasting blood glucose of low-total-osteocalcin group was significantly higher than that of high-total-osteocalcin group in male participants, while the fasting blood glucose of low-undercarboxylated-osteocalcin group was significantly higher than that of high-undercarboxylated-osteocalcin group in all participants and in
To the Editor:. We read with interest the article by Poli et al1 regarding their recent study, from which the authors concluded that the observed rate of major bleeding in patients who began vitamin K antagonist at ≥80 years of age was acceptably low and that age in itself should not be considered a contraindication to vitamin K antagonist treatment. The authors modeled hemorrhagic risk using a competing-risk regression analysis, according to Fine and Gray,2 and considered nonhemorrhagic death as a competing risk. The authors also pointed out that the rate of bleeding incidents was higher among patients taking vitamin K antagonist for venous thromboembolism than among those taking vitamin K antagonist for atrial fibrillation (hazard ratio 1.4; 95% confidence interval, 1.1-1.8). However, as revealed by the only Figure in the article, the 2 cumulative incidence curves interlaced for most of the follow-up period but diverged after about 4000 days of follow-up. In our opinion, it seems likely that ...

Im 37 weeks with DS2 and Im getting a little nervous about the vitamin k shot. I will be delivering with a midwife team in a hospital setting, and when I told them that we had already purchased Vitamin K drops for the newborn, they stated that the pediatricians at the hospital would prefer that we use the vitamin k drops out of their pharmacy. They said that the vitamin k drops from the hospital are exactly the same as the injection, too, which I find hard to believe. What do you think? I read somewhere a while ago that there are egg ingredients and another ingredient that may be linked to peanut allergies in the vitamin k shot. However, I cant find this information on a package insert online. Does this sound familiar to anyone else? Ive been wondering if perhaps this is why DS1 is allergic to these things. Id love any advice and information you guys have. Thanks so much for always be supportive!
A study group of 16,057 heart disease free women were followed for approximately 8 years. At the end of the study 480 women had coronary heart disease.. Researchers found higher dietary vitamin K2 intake reduced the risk of coronary heart disease. Each 10 mcg/day of vitamin K2 decreased the risk of CHD by 9%. Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) intake was not associated with CHD ...

Dietary intakes were assessed using food frequency questions (FFQs), and participants were followed for over eight years. At the end of the study, the researchers observed an association between a higher consumption of natural vitamin K2, particularly menaquinone-7, -8, and -9 and a significantly reduced prevalence of CHD.. Consumption of vitamin K1 had no effect on vascular health, said the researchers.. The reason behind the different effects of K1 and K2 may be due to the different distribution of each in the body, said the researchers. K1 is primarily taken-up by the liver and then cleared from circulation, while K2 is the major form of vitamin K transported also to extra-hepatic tissues, such as vessel wall and bones-tissue.. Of the subtypes of vitamin K2, it appeared that particularly MK-7, MK-8 and MK-9 affected the risk of CHD, ​said the researchers. A stronger effect of the longer subtypes could be due to a slower hepatic clearance of these subtypes, making them longer available ...

In doing my final search for studies on vitamin K2 and cardiovascular disease (CVD), I came across one on type 2 diabetes (1). Since diabetes can be fairly related to CVD, I decided to review it.. As with most of the studies on vitamin K2, the population was from The Netherlands. And just like the research on stroke, it was using the combined data from the Prospect and MORGEN arms of EPIC. After excluding people with prevalent diabetes at baseline, they had a study population of 38,094 men and women. The average daily intake of vitamin K2 was 49 µg in the highest one-fourth versus 15 µg in the lowest one-fourth.. After a median follow-up of 10.3 years, and adjusting for many variables (2), in comparing the highest intakes to the lowest, there was a trend towards a lower risk of diabetes, although the finding was not statistically significant (.80, .62-1.02). When looking at what effect an increase of 10 µg had on the risk of diabetes over the entire range of intakes, there was a borderline ...
The objective of the SAFE K study is to demonstrate that in patients treated with the antagonists of vitamin K (VKA), a daily intake of vitamin K2 (75 micrograms/day) as naturally produced by the ferments used in fermented dairy products, does not upset the balance of anticoagulant treatment.Fifty-two patients will be chosen to receive either verum or placebo for four months after a 4-month run-in period.In addition, the study evaluates if regular consumption of vitamin K2 reduce the need of changing the dose of anticoagulation treatment and improve the markers of bone mineralisation ...
Vitamin K2: Putting Calcium Where It Belongs Vitamin K2 provides major protection from osteoporosis, cardiovascular blockages and pathological calcification. Vitamin Ks job is to put calcium in the right places and keep it from being deposited in the wrong places. The right places are bones and blood, and the wrong places include calcification of the vessels, bone spurs and calcification of soft tissues. Vitamin K: Its Relationship to the Optimal Tissue Distribution and Function of Calcium It has been shown that calcium has a ubiquitous role in health, impacting on essentially all the Syndrome X conditions and diseases, which include obesity, blood pressure disorders, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and malfunctioning of cell signaling. Calcification of the arteries is a major known consequence of aging, as is the calcification of soft tissues and the accumulation of calcium intracellularly (within the cells). Optimum calcium nutrition depends on the interplay of a number of related ...

This is a topic most parents dont even know they should be making a decision about. Instead it simply happens as part of the routine procedures birthing moms and their newborns are subjected to within a hospital setting. Over the years some of my clients have opted out of doing Vitamin K in any form. When I first became involved in the birth community the home birth midwives were not giving Vitamin K at all. Now most of these same midwives have begun giving oral Vitamin K. Conversely to ask that your newborn not receive Vitamin K injection within the first moments of life created quite a stir in our local hospitals when I started going to births. It had to be OKd by the pediatrician with the parents signing an against medical advice form. These days our local nurses feel comfortable with delaying the injection for close to 2 hours and will not try too hard to dissuade you if you are refusing it out right. You need to talk this over thoroughly with your midwife or OB and pediatrician ahead of ...

N2 - BACKGROUND: Matrix Gla protein (MGP) is a vascular calcification inhibitor dependent upon vitamin K for activation. Evidence suggests that elevated plasma inactive MGP levels (desphospho-uncarboxylated MGP, dp-ucMGP; indicating poorer vascular vitamin K status) are associated with greater cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Despite African Americans experiencing highest rates of kidney failure and CVD events, relationships between dp-ucMGP and CVD risk markers have not been examined in this population. We investigated vascular vitamin K status (via plasma dp-ucMGP) between African American hemodialysis (HD) patients and healthy ...
Approach and Results-This study is an observational, prospective study of 167 individuals with stages 3 to 5 chronic kidney disease. Survival ≤4 years was assessed in all participants, and CAC progression was measured in a subset of 86 patients. Participants with the CG/GG genotype of VKORC1 had higher baseline CAC scores (median score, 112 versus 299; P=0.036). Of those 86 patients who had a 4-year CAC score, those with the CG/GG genotype had an increased risk of progressive CAC (adjusted for age, diabetes mellitus, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and hypertension) compared with those with the CC genotype. Four-year mortality risk was 4 times higher for individuals with the CG/GG genotypes compared with individuals with the CC genotype (odds ratio, 3.8; 95% confidence interval, 1.2-12.5; P=0.02), adjusted for age, sex, diabetes mellitus, estimated glomerular filtration rate, baseline CAC, and hypertension.. ...
The major finding of this study was that daily supplementation with 500 μg of phylloquinone for 36 months had a protective effect on progression of insulin resistance in older men.. In an animal study, rats fed a low vitamin K diet had impaired early insulin response and subsequent increased insulin secretion after intravenous administration of glucose (1). Higher vitamin K intake was cross-sectionally associated with reduced insulin resistance in both men and women in the Framingham Offspring cohort (3). A metabolic study of young men showed a significant association between vitamin K and post-glucose challenge measures, but not fasting measures (2). In our study, a beneficial effect of vitamin K supplementation for 36 months was observed using fasting measures of insulin resistance. The effect of this intervention on post-glucose challenge measures of insulin resistance was not tested in our study.. Recent studies proposed that the uncarboxylated form of osteocalcin, a vitamin K-dependent ...

If you are supplementing with high doses of calcium as well as vitamin D - without vitamin K2- - you go to danger for calcium-related osteoporosis and arthrosclerosis.. In her book Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox, Dr. Kate Rhéaume-Bleue, a naturopathic medical professional and Canadian radio as well as television health specialist, explains this phenomenon called the calcium mystery: a mysterious concurrent calcium shortage (in the skeletal system) and calcium extra (in the arteries) that underlies 2 major health concerns of our time, weakening of bones and also heart condition. How it works: Vitamin D promotes bone health and wellness by assisting you absorb calcium. You need vitamin K2 to obtain calcium to where your body requires it as well as to stop it from being deposited in the wrong areas. K2 turns on an unique healthy protein called osteocalcin, which directs the calcium to the appropriate locations, like your bones as well as teeth. K2 likewise activates an additional protein ...
