What are the Benefits of Vitamin K?
This vitamin has a number of health benefits both inside and outside of the body which can lead to a better aging result.
Reducing wrinkles and maintaining skin elasticity with skin care:
You may have noticed that Vitamin K has become more popular within skin care and it’s something companies really like to advertise. The vitamin helps maintain your skins elasticity which helps prevent wrinkles which of course means you have glowing, youthful skin for longer. There is a hereditary condition called pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) which results in severe skin wrinkling.
This is due to there being calcification of elastic fibers which is caused by high concentration of calcium and phosphate. This can be reduced by a specific protein which is thought to be activated by Vitamin K dependent enzymes.
Vitamin K has also been known to be beneficial for blotchy, problem skin and fighting dark circles underneath the eyes. This is because the Vitamin penetrates the skin pores and reaches the damaged capillary or artery which is causing the decoloring.
When it reaches said capillary or artery, it works to help with the blood clotting process and stops any seepage which causes blotchy, discolored skin. This helps
the skin to repair itself to its natural color.
By using a mixture of skin care products which are Vitamin K based, keeping a healthy, balanced diet and using supplements when needed, you should see a impressive improvement with skin coloring and/or damage, whether that be wrinkles or blotchiness.
