How Leafy Greens Improve Your Bone Health

Most people know that leafy greens are one of the healthiest foods we can eat.

Leafy greens are loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and chlorophyll.

One of these nutrients in particular has been shown to be a powerful ally in supporting bone health.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin. It is commonly found in many animal foods including, grass-fed cheese, butter, and fatty red meat.

Unfortunately, many people can't have dairy due to food sensitivities. What's more, many people do not eat meat. So where are these people going to get their vitamin k?

Fortunately, there is another common source of vitamin K: leafy green vegetables.

In fact, some of the best sources of vitamin K are leafy greens. This includes: collard greens, spinach, kale chard, mustard greens, and parsley.

Vitamin K and Bone Health

Vitamin K, First identified by researchers in 1930, is widely known for playing an integral role in the blood clotting process.

The "K" in vitamin K actually comes from the German word “koagulation.” Since vitamin K promotes coagulation, doctors routinely advise those taking anticoagulation drugs to avoid foods high in vitamin K.

Two types of vitamin K have been identified. Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2. Both are important to health but but a deficiency in K1 is almost unheard of. K2, on the other hand, is often deficient in many people. Especially those with bone health issues.

Recently, however, there has been more and more research suggesting that vitamin K may also have a critical role in the maintenance of bone health.

These studies show that vitamin K can support bone strength and reduce the risk of fracture in certain populations.

How Does it Work?

There are a number of studies that suggest that vitamin K is associated with the stimulation of bone formation and an increase in bone density. There also seems to be a negative correlation with bone deterioration and risk of fracture.

However, this data is based on studies that have several limitations.

For a more accurate picture of vitamin K's role in bone health, more comprehensive research is needed.

However, it is safe to say that consuming more natural whole-food sources of vitamin K can only be beneficial for your bone health. But how can you really be sure that you are consuming enough leafy greens to obtain adequate amounts of vitamin K?
