vitamin k foods.
Vitamin K is part of the essential micronutrient family. The role vit K is most commonly known for is blood coagulation, however, it also serves an important role in the formation of proteins.
These proteins, that need vitamin K, play a part in the development and survival of the nervous system, reduces the pro-inflammatory response and helps preserves the integrity of the blood-brain barrier.
All of these things, our nervous system (think stress response), inflammation and the blood-brain barrier are aspects that influence the state of our mental wellbeing. Eating foods that support and protect these parts of our biology is key in building a good foundation for mental wellbeing.
Its also been noted that vitamin k may lower oxidative stress in the brain. Lower levels of oxidative stress = better mental wellbeing.
