Scientists have found that a lack of this trace mineral can lead to early aging. With a lack of this substance in the human body, the level of interleukin decreases. This can provoke problems with the immune system, eventually accelerating the aging of the entire body.

The main function of vitamin K is to regulate blood clotting. Vitamin K helps in the regulation of blood clotting by transporting calcium throughout the body. If somewhere the vessels are damaged, it forms a clot, and the bleeding stops. Sufficient amount of vitamin K contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.

Vitamin K is synthesized in the human body. The daily dosage of Vitamin K depends on the person's weight: 1 microgram of vitamin is required per 1 kilogram of weight. Therefore, with a weight of 50 kilograms, the body needs 50 micrograms, with a weight of 70 kilograms, 70 micrograms, and so on. To increase the amount of vitamin K, you need to revise your diet. Sources of vitamin K include greens, nettles, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, olive oil, cottage cheese, milk. You can replenish the vitamin K norm with wheat bran, cereals and fruits: kiwi, bananas and avocados. Include spinach, lettuce, and liver in your daily diet. Some herbs and spices can also be a source of vitamin K: dry and fresh basil, dried sage and thyme, fresh parsley, dry coriander and dry parsley, dry marjoram, chives, mustard leaves, beetroot leaves, young dandelion leaves. Hot spices: ground red pepper, curry powder, and cayenne pepper. Spice with the highest source of vitamin K is ground red chili pepper (105 mcg per 100 grams).
