Boost bone density with vitamin K
The following is one of the first studies to show a direct link between vitamin K in the diet and bone quality.

Researchers measured the diets of 200 men and women, average age 67, and followed up with them for two years.

Using ultrasound, doctors found that compared to those who consumed the least vitamin K, those who got the most vitamin K in the diet had better bone mineral density, and less-porous and stronger bone.

Doctors concluded that these results show vitamin K protects against bone fracture due to osteoporosis.
