2. vitamin K2 for the arteries
Blood clotting is essential for the human body. It serves to stop bleeding and close injuries. Blood clotting occurs in different stages. When a blood vessel is injured, the first thing that happens is that blood platelets, also known as thrombocytes, accumulate on the vessel wall. Then the platelets clump together tightly and the clotting factors deposit on the injured vessel. The reaction chain causes the wound tapes to contract and close the wound. Vitamin K2 is essential for wound healing. In vitamin K2 are GLA proteins, which are responsible for the regulation of calcium in the vascular tissues. If a deficiency occurs, arteriosclerosis may result. In addition, other damages can occur such as hardening of arteries or increase of cardiovascular diseases. These diseases can be prevented by taking vitamin K2.
3 The daily requirement of vitamin K2
The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily amount of about 60-80 µg of vitamin K2 for adolescents 15 years and older and adults. In general, children should reach a daily amount of about 20-50 µg. Dosage and daily requirement may vary in certain life situations such as pregnancy or breastfeeding. Newborns obtain their vitamin K2 from their mother's milk. However, since this is insufficient and does not fill the stores, infants are given additional vitamin K2 by the doctor at the first examination after birth.
