The better known vitamin K1 is used by the body for blood clotting. K1 is abundant in green leafy vegetables. Once absorbed from food, vitamin K1 is transported to the liver where it remains to support coagulation. Deficiency of vitamin K1 is extremely rare, even among people who seldom eat vegetables, since the body has a mechanism to recycle small amounts of vitamin K1 so it always available for blood clotting.
Vitamin K2 was overlooked for decades as researchers assumed it was simply another blood clotting vitamin. In recent years we have learned that vitamin K2 does not participate in blood clotting, its role is to guide calcium around the body, directing the mineral into bones and teeth and removing calcium from arteries and other tissues where it causes harm. Vitamin K2 promotes bone health, heart health, fights cancer and more. Very significantly, vitamin K2 is not recycled in the body, so deficiency can develop in as little as one week if vitamin K2 levels aren’t optimal, and recent research shows the majority of apparently healthy adults are deficient in vitamin K2.  That means most people aren’t getting enough vitamin K2 to activate all K2 dependent proteins, increasing the risk for osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer.
