Adding to the growing body of evidence that vitamin K plays an essential role in bone health, Tufts University researchers have found that high intakes of the nutrient - most prevalent in leafy green vegetables - are associated with high bone mineral density. Based on dietary records of more than 2,500 people, scientists at Tufts' Vitamin K Lab discovered that women who consuemd the most vitamin K - an average of 309 micrograms a day - had significantly higher bone mineral density than women who consumed the least - 70 micrograms a day, on average. (A half cup of cooked spinach contains 360 micrograms; and broccoli, 113 micrograms.) It's thought that vitamin K promotes bone strength by allowing a particular protein to take its place in the skeletal structure. (Source: Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter)
