ACTIONS: Vitamin K-1 is necessary for changing glutamic acid to gamma carboxy galutamic acid, which is specifically capable of binding calcium ions. These changes take place in various sites such as: (Kidney proteins-which inhibit formation of calcium oxalate stones, Osteocalcin-which is needed for repair and remodeling of bones, and Clotting factors II, VII, IX, and X. (1,2,3))
Vitamin K-1 administered several days before birth has beneficial effects on the relative prothrombin deficiency commonly seen in neonates. When given orally to nursing mothers vitamin K-1 is easily passed through the breast milk to the infant and can reduce the risk of hypoprothrombenemia in breast fed infants. (7)
*Proteins C and S which have fibrinolytic and anticoagulant activities are also vitamin K-1 dependent. (4)
*Vitamin K-1 has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity by decreasing the complement cascade, and also by potentiating the anti-inflammatory effects of steroids. (5,6)
* Vitamin K-1 has demonstrated an analgesic effect nearly as effective as that of morphine and barbiturates when injected in patients with inoperable carcinomas. (8)
USES as VITAMIN k Supplement: K-Quinone provides a natural and non-toxic source of vitamin K-1, as opposed to menadione, the water soluble form, and may be prescribed for patients in whom a vitamin K-1 deficiency is suspected. A wide range of medications have been shown to reduce vitamin K-1 levels including anticonvulsants, analgesics, antibiotics, and anticoagulants. Patients taking any of these medications may develop disorders of clotting or calcium metabolism indicating the need for supplemental K-Quinone. Calcium Dysmetabolism:
Additional vitamin K-1 is indicated for patients with kidney stones, osteoporosis, fractures, or other disorders of calcium metabolism. Clotting Disorders: Hypoprothrombenemia or the presence of these bleeding disorders would be an indication for additional Vitamin K. Vitamin K may be indicated in clotting disorders as well as bleeding problems because several fibrinolytic proteins are vitamin K dependant. Thus vitamin K may be thought of as having as alternative effect on the clotting cascade.
Anti-Inflammatory: K-Quinone may be utilized in situations where one wishes to potentiate the anti-inflammatory, antigranulomatous activity of steroids. This could be combined with Lick-Rich and Ananacur to further reduce the need for exogenous steroids while maintaining similar therapeutic results without side effects.
Dosage: Up to ten drops twice daily with meals for adults.
