Hi I'm Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we're talking about what is Vitamin K and where is it found and what is it used for in the body? Vitamin K is known as our blood clotting vitamin so it is actually the precursor to some of the compounds that we need to actually form healthy blood clots which is important in case we have an injury and we need to form a clot. People that don't have this function are hemophiliacs and they literally cannot clot their blood and it can be very very dangerous in the case of a bruise, a simple bruise. One place that we can get our Vitamin K is our leafy green vegetables so you know Romaine lettuce is a perfect example of this and I definitely recommend getting some green leafy vegetables every day so consider having a salad for one meal either lunch or dinner, a big green salad every single day. If you haven't had it for lunch include it for dinner. If you can plan it for lunch but make it a wonderful salad that you enjoy with all kinds of colorful vegetables, some toasted nuts, some lean protein and a nice olive oil dressing. This is Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.
