Solgar Vitamin K1 (Phytomenadione) 100 µg Tablets contains Vitamin
K, a fat-soluble vitamin. There are 3 types of Vitamin K; K1 (Phytomenadione)
is derived from food, K2 (Menaquinone) is produced by intestinal bacteria
and K3 (Menadione) is a synthetic form.
Vitamin K is important for blood clotting or coagulation and is essential
for the synthesis by the liver of blood clotting proteins. Vitamin K is
also widely recognised for supporting healthy bones. This is due to its
ability to activate calcitonin, a hormone produced by humans, which then
aids the absorption of Calcium into the bone. Absorption of Vitamin K
takes place mainly in the upper part of the small intestine with the help
of bile or bile salts and pancreatic juices and then carried to the liver.
Vitamin K is found in both plant and animal sources in nature, with high
concentrations found in dark leafy greens liver, milk and fish liver oils.

with this key vitamin, contributing to:
• Normal blood clotting
