A short introduction to Vitamin K.  The letter K comes from the German spelling of coagulation (koagulation).  This is the process of the blood to thicken and stop bleeding. Without vitamin K we cannot stop bleeding and new born babies or their mothers can bleed to death.  A common problem with circumcision.

For many years vitamin K was only thought of for coagulation until it was discovered to be key in bone health.  With a renewed interest even more studies find it needed for liver and arterial health.  Because it stores in fat it persists and keeps us from developing many chronic diseases.  Even things like chronic fatigue and fibro-myalgia are noted when vitamin K stores are depleted.  Restoring our vitamin K takes larger than normally needed for healthy people to sustain their health.  

The dose levels far exceed the recommended daily allowances set by the government regulatory bodies that foreign companies lobby agressively.  The Codex Allimentarius Commission is dictating nutrient levels under the guise of them being voluntary but when not implemented a "technical barrier to trade" is imposted and trade is restricted to diminish a countries' soverignity.  The NPN (Codex) regulations in Canada allow 0.120mg of vitamin K to be sold.  Merck: The low vitamin K1 content in breast milk can be increased by increasing maternal dietary intake of [K1] to 5mg/day [5,000mcg/day]. This is 42 tablets per day of the 120mcg allowed by regulation.  

The issue is not whether or not we should take this dose amount, but the Canadian Governments' ability to regulate based on individual needs as a sovereign nation rather than for foreign corporate profit.

Do we want to have the right to choose vitamins for ourselves in Canada?
Awareness, thought and constructive discussion is needed from individuals and not just corporations.
