The Missing Link to COVID-19?
COVID-19 is finally on the decline — and it’s about time.
As we speak, mask-wearing mandates are being lifted in many states.
But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear.
In fact, it means you need to be taking even more steps on your own to make sure you’re protected.
Like loading up on one key nutrient that could decrease your risk of severe complications if you ever do get COVID-19.
A recent study found that COVID-19 patients are more likely to be deficient in vitamin K.
There was also a correlation between low levels of vitamin K and an increased risk of a severe case of COVID-19 — and of a poor outcome.
There’s a good reason for this connection.
Two of the deadliest complications of COVID-19 are respiratory failure and thrombosis (the formation of blood clots) — and vitamin K can help prevent both.
Well, vitamin K helps regulate blood clotting because it activates both pro-clotting and anti-clotting factors in your liver. It also activates a protein that could help prevent blood clots.
Plus, vitamin K also helps regulate lung health.
And even if you’re not worried about COVID-19, there are other important reasons to make sure you’re filled up on K.
It can help prevent heart disease.
Specifically, one study showed that it helps prevent the progression of coronary artery calcification, which occurs when calcium builds up in your arteries and restricts blood flow.
It helps strengthen your bones.
Vitamin K helps promote the growth and replacement of bone cells – this is necessary for strong bones and reduces the risk of fractures.
It helps heal wounds.
Vitamin K’s role in blood clotting is what helps blood turn from liquid into a sticky gel-like consistency, and ultimately into a scab. Without it, we would bleed out with even a simple cut or scrape!
Fortunately, most people can get all the vitamin K they need from food sources like spinach, broccoli, and kale.
But if you’re worried about COVID-19, now is a good time to also consider a vitamin K supplement to make sure your levels are ideal.
If you’re on blood thinners, be sure to talk to your doctor to before loading up on vitamin K.
