Vitamin K is good for your heart. It may help you keep lower blood pressure by eliminating the build-up of several minerals in the arteries (mineralization), allowing the heart to freely push blood through the body. Mineralization naturally occurs with age and is a major risk factor for heart disease. Adequate intake of vitamin K has also been shown to lower the risk of stroke.
