  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    Vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin, is stored in your fat tissue and liver until it is needed to help with blood clotting or to maintain bone health. Usually, you can get your daily allotment of vitamin K from the foods you eat, such as broccoli, turnip greens, spinach, kale, asparagus, cabbage, green tea, beef liver and lettuce. It is also produced by intestinal bacteria. A variety of prescription and over-the-counter supplements are available for vitamin K deficiency.
