Phytonadione (Vitamin K)

Phytonadione is a man-made form of Vitamin K (or Vitamin K1). It's a fat-soluble vitamin stable to air and moisture but that decomposes in sunlight.

Vitamin K is essential for the functioning of several proteins involved in blood clotting. The ability to bind calcium ions (Ca2+) is required for the activation of the seven vitamin K-dependent clotting factors, or proteins, in the coagulation cascade. Coagulation cascade refers to a series of events, each dependent on the other, that stop bleeding through clot formation.

Vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors are synthesized in the liver. Consequently, severe liver disease results in lower blood levels of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors and an increased risk of uncontrolled bleeding (hemorrhage).

Vitamin K deficiency is uncommon in healthy adults. Adults at risk of vitamin K deficiency include those taking vitamin K antagonist anticoagulant drugs and individuals with significant liver damage or disease. Additionally, individuals with disorders of fat malabsorption may be at increased risk of vitamin K deficiency.
