Vitamin K Insufficiency Linked to Cognitive Dysfunction
May 18, 2022
New evidence draws an association between vitamin K insufficiency and cognitive dysfunction, further argument for the potential of vitamin K2.
Frontiers in Nutrition published a new, large-population, cross-sectional study that demonstrated the association of vitamin K insufficiency with cognitive function.
The finding of the present study was in line with the previous epidemiological studies, showing that lower vitamin K intake is associated with cognitive impairment.
“Based on our research and the critical work that continues, we can hypothesize that K2 supplementation could prove beneficial in the brain development of children and support healthy brain function in adults.”

At Minnesota Personalized Medicine, we encourage all patients to ensure good vitamin K2 intake via supplementation. The sole exception are those patients on Coumadin (warfarin) blood thinning medication.
