Topic: Does vitamin K help with bruising?
Speaker: Anar Mikailov, MD FAAD:
Vitamin K is essential in what is known as the blood clotting cascade. This is a normal and natural process in our body to help stop bleeding and prevent additional bruise formation. That is why we included vitamin K in addition to article in our Skintensive product lines. What we have found is when vitamin K is combined with arnica, the two ingredients together, have a synergistic effect leading to outcomes much better than when the individual ingredients are used separately. In addition to helping blood clot and bruises stop, vitamin K is essential for collagen formation. This is the collagen that we need to repair trauma, cuts, bruises, and bleeding.
