  • Keep the amount of Vitamin K in your diet consistent.
  • Do not eat large amounts of foods high in Vitamin K one day and none the next day.
  • Drink plenty of water at least 1/2 cup after meals and between meals.

The Adequate Intake (or AI) for Vitamin K for adults is 120 mcg for men and 90 mcg for women. (Mcg stands for micrograms.) Intestinal bacteria also make Vitamin K so it is difficult to develop a deficiency of Vitamin K.
