Include Vitamin K2 In Your Diet

We have heard of vitamin B and C. We have already heard of the benefits of A, D, and E. However, there is another vitamin that barely ever comes into focus. That vitamin is Vitamin K.

Vitamin K is of two types: K1 and K2. Vitamin K1 is important for the liver and helps blood clot. It is mainly present in green leafy vegetables. Vitamin K2 helps bones and soft tissues. It is present mainly in fermented foods.

Vitamin K2 has been proven to help heart health, bone health, and to keep the deadly prostrate cancer at bay. This means that including fermented foods in your diet will definitely help your health. Vitamin K1 has not been proven to be as effective, which is why you should concentrate more on vitamin K2. We have compiled a few food products that you should incorporate in your diet so that you get the adequate amounts of this vitamin:

  1. Natto
