Vitamin K plays an essential role in blood clotting and bone metabolism (carboxylation of osteocalcin). High serum concentrations of undercarboxylated osteocalcin and low serum concentrations of vitamin K are related with lower bone mineral density and better risk of hip fracture. Vitamin K supplements may get better bone mass in postmenopausal women. Vitamin K prevents calcification of arteries and further soft tissue. Calcification of organs and other soft tissue is an adverse effect of aging. Vitamin K may take part in a role in the regulation of blood sugar. The pancreas, which makes insulin, has the second utmost amount of vitamin K in the body.
