Vitamin K, sourced from Orange Jasmine, is best known for its role in blood clotting, but its benefits go even beyond that. It also has important functions in the skeletal and cardiovascular systems. Many people get vitamin K from their diet in the form of vitamin K1(phylloquinone) by eating leafy greens such as kale, spinach, collard greens, as well as from other vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and green beans. In reality, many Americans aren't getting enough of these vegetables to fulfill their need of vitamin K. Moreover, when it comes to bone health, vitamin K2 is the form that offers the most benefits. Vitamin K2's primary role in the body is to control where calcium is used. It makes sure that the calcium does not go to your arteries and soft tissues, but instead is used in the bones. Vitamin K2 also stimulates bone-building cells, enhancing bone growth. When calcium is used in the bone and not in blood vessels or arterial walls, it results in blood flowing more efficiently from the heart to the rest of the body.
