What Are Star Ratings?

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

3 Stars Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.

2 Stars Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.

1 Star For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Used for Why
2 Stars
Anorexia
Take under medical supervision: 45 mg daily
[2 stars] Learn More

In a preliminary study of women with anorexia nervosa, those who supplemented with 45 mg of vitamin K2 per day for approximately one year experienced significantly less bone loss, compared with women who did not take the supplement.2 This study suggests that supplementing with vitamin K2 may help prevent osteoporosis , which is a common complication of anorexia nervosa. The amount of vitamin K2 used in this study was much larger than the amount of vitamin K found in food and most supplements. Moreover, vitamin K2 is not yet generally available as a supplement, although it can be obtained through some nutritionally oriented doctors. Individuals interested in using this treatment should be monitored by a doctor.

2 Stars
Atherosclerosis (Vitamin K1, for coronary calcification )
500 mcg per day of vitamin K1
Learn More

In a double-blind trial, supplementing with vitamin K1 for three years appeared to slow the rate of progression of coronary artery calcification in elderly people who had preexisting coronary artery calcification. Participants in that study were randomly assigned to receive a multivitamin that contained 500 mcg per day of vitamin K1 or the same multivitamin without vitamin K1.3 

2 Stars
Celiac Disease
Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner
Learn More

The malabsorption that occurs in celiac disease can lead to multiple nutritional deficiencies. The most common nutritional problems in people with celiac disease include deficiencies of essential fatty acids, iron , vitamin D , vitamin K , calcium , magnesium , and folic acid .4 Zinc malabsorption also occurs frequently in celiac disease5 and may result in zinc deficiency, even in people who are otherwise in remission.6 People with newly diagnosed celiac disease should be assessed for nutritional deficiencies by a doctor. Celiac patients who have not yet completely recovered should supplement with a high-potency multivitamin-mineral . Some patients may require even higher amounts of some of these vitamins and minerals—an issue that should be discussed with their healthcare practitioner. Evidence of a nutrient deficiency in a celiac patient is a clear indication for supplementation with that nutrient.

After commencement of a gluten-free diet, overall nutritional status gradually improves. However, deficiencies of some nutrients may persist, even in people who are strictly avoiding gluten. For example, magnesium deficiency was found in 8 of 23 adults with celiac disease who had been following a gluten-free diet and were symptom-free. When these adults were supplemented with magnesium for two years, their bone mineral density increased significantly.7

2 Stars
Crohn’s Disease
80 to 1,000 mcg daily
Learn More

In people with Crohn's disease, vitamin K deficiency can result from malabsorption due to intestinal inflammation or bowel surgery, from chronic diarrhea, or from dietary changes necessitated by food intolerance. In addition, Crohn's disease is often treated with antibiotics that have the potential to kill beneficial vitamin K–producing bacteria in the intestines. Vitamin K levels were significantly lower in a group of people with Crohn's disease than in healthy people. Moreover, the rate of bone loss in the Crohn's disease patients increased with increasing degrees of vitamin K deficiency.8 When combined with earlier evidence that vitamin K is required to maintain healthy bones, this study suggests that vitamin K deficiency is a contributing factor to the accelerated bone loss that often occurs in people with Crohn's disease.

2 Stars
Cystic Fibrosis
5 mg every three days
Learn More

The fat malabsorption associated with CF often leads to a deficiency of fat-soluble vitamins. Oral supplementation of these nutrients is considered crucial to maintaining good nutritional status.9 Current recommendations for supplementation are as follows: vitamin A , 5,000 to 10,000 IU/day; vitamin D , 1,000 to 2,000 IU/day; vitamin E , 100 to 300 IU/day; and vitamin K , 5 mg every three days. Of the water-soluble vitamins, only vitamin B12 is poorly absorbed in cystic fibrosis,10 and taking pancreatic enzymes helps prevent B12 deficiencies.11

2 Stars
Osteoporosis
1,000 mcg daily
Learn More

Vitamin K is needed for bone formation. People with osteoporosis have been reported to have low blood levels12 , 13 and low dietary intake of vitamin K.14 , 15 One study found that postmenopausal (though not premenopausal) women may reduce urinary loss of calcium by taking 1 mg of vitamin K per day.16 People with osteoporosis given large amounts of vitamin K2 (45 mg per day) have shown an increase in bone density after six months17 and decreased bone loss after one18 or two19 years.

Other preliminary studies have reported that vitamin K supplementation increases bone formation in some women20 and that higher vitamin K intake correlates with greater bone mineral density.21 However, a double-blind study found that supplementing with 500 mcg of vitamin K1 per day for three years had no effect on bone mineral density, when compared with a placebo.22 Some doctors recommend 1 mg vitamin K1 to postmenopausal women as a way to help maintain bone mass, though optimal intake remains unknown.

Morning Sickness

Learn More

Vitamin K and vitamin C , taken together, may provide relief of symptoms for some women. In one study, 91% of women who took 5 mg of vitamin K and 25 mg of vitamin C per day reported the complete disappearance of morning sickness within three days.23 Menadione was removed from the market a number of years ago because of concerns about potential toxicity. Although some doctors still use a combination of vitamin K1 (the most prevalent form of vitamin K in food) and vitamin C for morning sickness, no studies on this treatment have been done.

Phenylketonuria
Refer to label instructions

People with PKU may be deficient in several nutrients, due to the restricted diet which is low in protein and animal fat. Deficiencies of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs),24 , 25 , 26 selenium ,27 , 28 , 29 , 30 vitamin B12 ,31 and vitamin K may develop on this diet.32

Because the PKU diet is low in animal products, fat intake is also significantly reduced. The results of a preliminary study of children with PKU suggested that the low-fat PKU diet intake may impair the absorption of vitamin K , a fat-soluble vitamin, from the diet, possibly resulting in a vitamin K deficiency. In that study, children with PKU on a strict diet had low levels of certain vitamin K-dependent proteins needed for normal blood clotting.33

How It Works

How to Use It

The recommended dietary allowance for vitamin K is about 1 mcg per 2.2 pounds of body weight per day or about 65 to 80 mcg per day for most adults.34 This level of intake may be achieved by consuming adequate amounts of leafy green vegetables. However, studies have shown that many men and women aged 18 to 44 years ingest less than the recommended amount of vitamin K.35 , 36

Where to Find It

Leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, kale, collards, and broccoli, are the best sources of vitamin K. The greener the plant, the higher the vitamin K content.37 Other significant dietary sources of vitamin K include soybean oil, olive oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil.38

Possible Deficiencies

A vitamin K deficiency, which causes uncontrolled bleeding, is rare, except in people with certain malabsorption diseases . However, there are reports of severe vitamin K deficiency developing in hospitalized patients who had poor food intake and were receiving antibiotics.39 All newborn infants receive vitamin K to prevent deficiencies that sometimes develop in breast-fed infants.

Interactions with Medicines

Certain medicines interact with this supplement.

Types of interactions: Beneficial Adverse Check

Replenish Depleted Nutrients

  • Cholestyramine

    Bile acid sequestrants may prevent absorption of folic acid and the fat-soluble vitamins A , D , E , and K .40 , 41 Other medications and vitamin supplements should be taken one hour before or four to six hours after bile acid sequestrants for optimal absorption.42 Animal studies suggest calcium and zinc may also be depleted by taking cholestyramine.43

  • Colesevelam

    Bile acid sequestrants may prevent absorption of folic acid and the fat-soluble vitamins A , D , E , and K .44 , 45 Other medications and vitamin supplements should be taken one hour before or four to six hours after bile acid sequestrants for optimal absorption.46 Animal studies suggest calcium and zinc may also be depleted by taking cholestyramine.47

  • Colestipol

    Bile acid sequestrants, including colestipol, may prevent absorption of folic acid and the fat-soluble vitamins A , D , E , K .48 , 49 People taking colestipol should consult with their doctor about vitamin malabsorption and supplementation. People should take other drugs and vitamin supplements one hour before or four to six hours after colestipol to improve absorption.50

    Animal studies suggest calcium and zinc may be depleted by taking cholestyramine, another bile acid sequestrant. 51 Whether these same interactions would occur with colestipol is not known.

  • Cycloserine

    Many antibiotics taken by mouth, including cycloserine, may kill friendly bacteria in the large intestine that produce vitamin K.52 With short-term (a few weeks or less) antibiotic use, the actions on vitamin K are usually mild and cause no problems. After antibiotic therapy is completed, vitamin K activity returns to normal.

  • Dexamethasone

    Oral corticosteroids have been found to increase urinary loss of vitamin K , vitamin C , selenium , and zinc .53 , 54 The importance of these losses is unknown.

    The interaction is supported by preliminary, weak, fragmentary, and/or contradictory scientific evidence.
  • Isoniazid

    Many antibiotics taken by mouth, including isoniazid, may kill friendly bacteria in the large intestine that produce vitamin K.55 Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) is now found in some multivitamins .

  • Mineral Oil

    Mineral oil has interfered with the absorption of many nutrients, including beta-carotene , calcium , phosphorus , potassium , and vitamins A , D , K , and E in some,56 but not all,57 research. Taking mineral oil on an empty stomach may reduce this interference. It makes sense to take a daily multivitamin-mineral supplement two hours before or after mineral oil. It is important to read labels, because many multivitamins do not contain vitamin K or contain inadequate (less than 100 mcg per day) amounts.

Risk factors for developing antibiotic-induced bleeding include being malnourished or having little or no oral intake (as in people undegoing major surgery or being treated in an intensive care unit).361 Infants may also be at increased risk, since vitamin K status in the first few months of life is often low. Little is known about which antibiotics do and do not promote vitamin K deficiency. People taking an antibiotic should discuss with their doctor the advisability of taking vitamin K.

  • Sulfacetamide

    Several cases of excessive bleeding have been reported in people who take antibiotics.362 , 363 , 364 , 365 This side effect may be the result of reduced vitamin K activity and/or reduced vitamin K production by bacteria in the colon. One study showed that people who had taken broad-spectrum antibiotics had lower liver concentrations of vitamin K2 (menaquinone), though vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) levels remained normal.366 Several antibiotics appear to exert a strong effect on vitamin K activity, while others may not have any effect. Therefore, one should refer to a specific antibiotic for information on whether it interacts with vitamin K. Doctors of natural medicine sometimes recommend vitamin K supplementation to people taking antibiotics. Aditional research is needed to determine whether the amount of vitamin K1 found in some multivitamins is sufficient to prevent antibiotic-induced bleeding. Moreover, most multivitamins do not contain vitamin K.

  • Warfarin

    Warfarin slows blood clotting by interfering with vitamin K activity. Since vitamin K reverses the anticoagulant effects of warfarin,425 people taking warfarin should avoid vitamin K-containing supplements unless specifically directed otherwise by their prescribing doctor. Some vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, parsley, spinach, and others) are high in vitamin K. Eating large quantities426 or making sudden changes in the amounts eaten of these vegetables can interfere with the effectiveness and safety of warfarin therapy. The greener the plant, the higher the vitamin K content.427 Other significant dietary sources of vitamin K include soybean oil, olive oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil.428

    Vitamin K supplementation can be used, however, to counteract an overdose of warfarin.429 In addition, controlled and continuous supplementation with vitamin K (100 to 150 mcg per day) has been used effectively to reduce the fluctuations in dosage requirement that occur in some people taking warfarin or related drugs that have the same action as warfarin.430 , 431 , 432 Such treatment requires a doctor's supervision.

  • Zonisamide

    Some studies have shown that babies born to women taking anticonvulsant drugs have low blood levels of vitamin K, which might cause bleeding in the infant.433 Though some researchers recommend vitamin K supplementation prior to delivery,434 , 435 not all agree that supplementation for women taking anticonvulsant drugs is necessary.436 Until more information is available, pregnant women or women who might become pregnant while taking anticonvulsant drugs should discuss vitamin K supplementation with their healthcare practitioner.

The Drug-Nutrient Interactions table may not include every possible interaction. Taking medicines with meals, on an empty stomach, or with alcohol may influence their effects.
