When it comes to vitamins, some tend to hog the spotlight more than others in terms of popularity. Vitamin C, for example, comes straight to mind as we inch closer to winter, aka cold season (in terms of temperature and those agonizing nasal infections). However, we should ensure that we’re getting enough of all vitamins to stay in good health year-round—vitamin K included.

In case you’re less familiar with vitamin K, you’ll definitely want to keep reading. Ahead, with the help of two nutrition experts, we’ll cover tell-tale signs you’re not getting enough of it. Plus: an overview of why it’s so important and how to get more vitamin K in your diet.

How vitamin K benefits your health

Erin Stokes, ND, a naturopathic doctor, and MegaFood Medical Director, kicks things off by giving a brief summary of this (potentially) lesser-known vitamin. “Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin involved in coagulation, bone metabolism, and cardiovascular health,” she shares. Fun fact: She adds that it gets its name from the Danish word koagulation. (You really do learn something new every day.)

From there, Dr. Stokes adds that the principal forms of vitamin K are K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone). “K1 is found in leafy green vegetables, and K2 is made in the human intestine and also found in fermented foods,” she explains.
