Vitamin K is essential for bone health and blood clotting. There are two types of vitamin K: vitamin K1, found in leafy greens such as kale, collards, spinach, mustard and turnip greens, Romaine lettuce as well as broccoli and cauliflower. Egg yolks are another good source. Vitamin K2 is manufactured by the beneficial bacteria in your intestines, so it's important to consume cultured foods containing probiotics, such as yogurt and kefir. The RDA for Vit K for adult men is 80 mg/day and for women it's 65 mg.
