Eat to Nourish: Vitamin K

Updated: Mar 29

Why it matters to include Vitamin K in your diet.


Conventional fresh food supply chains take days even weeks to get fresh produce to you the customer. As a result, a lot of nutritional value is lost due to natural decaying processes and vitamins are especially volatile and you lose a lot of nutritional value very quickly. Spinach can lose up to 90% of its Vitamin C content in 24 hours.


Because Nourishing Hub is local to the community we sell our greens still growing and you harvest when you are ready to eat, you have no loss of nutrients.


Benefits

  • Bone health, there appears to be a correlation between low intake of vitamin K and osteoporosis.

  • Cognitive health, increased blood levels of vitamin K have been linked with improved episodic memory in older adults.

  • Heart health, Vitamin K may help keep blood pressure lower by preventing mineralization, where minerals build up in the arteries. This enables the heart to pump blood freely through the body.


Veg in order of highest to the lowest concentration of Vitamin K

  • Mustard

  • Rocket

  • Broccoli

  • Alfalfa
