Vitamin K activates proteins that play a role in blood clotting, calcium metabolism and heart health.
One of its most important functions is to regulate calcium deposition. In other words, it promotes the calcification of bones and prevents the calcification of blood vessels and kidneys.
Some scientists have suggested that the roles of vitamins K1 and K2 are quite different, and many feel that they should be classified as separate nutrients altogether.
This idea is supported by an animal study showing that vitamin K2 reduced blood vessel calcification whereas vitamin K1 did not.
Controlled studies in people also observe that vitamin K2 supplements generally improve bone and heart health, while vitamin K1 has no significant benefits
