There is a great deal of confusion in the popular press regarding the forms of vitamin K and their relative contribution to health. During this Lecture, we will explore the different forms of vitamin K (there are at least 11 known forms!) and what is known about their metabolism. Food sources, including dairy products, and dietary intakes of vitamin K will be described relative to current recommendations, with an emphasis on older adults. We will then explore the current knowledge of what vitamin K does beyond its role in supporting normal coagulation. There will be an emphasis on the quality of evidence relative to popular claims about this essential nutrient.
