I have just been reading about vitamin K and found an interesting suggestion that adequate Vit K might prevent kidney stones! See: http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/vitamin-k-000343.htm

Almost forgot - vitamin K is often deficient in Crohn's, so it is entirely likely that a supplement would be useful. Most vitamin supplements don't have any vitamin K.

I believe it is illegal to produce or sell a multi vitamin with vitamin K in it in Canada. Probably would need a prescription.
Dx'ed in 1999. No surgeries.

Current meds: 25mg Methotrexate. Udo's Choice Probiotics (30 billion).


Betaine, digestive enzymes, Candicin (oil of oregano capsules), Beta Sitosterol.

Tried SCD, didn't work, now avoiding gluten and dairy.

I won't tell on you to Health Canada, Gail. Perhaps they changed the regulation...

Isn't that just like our friends in the bureaucracy! If you read the article through, they say that it is best to get the vit K in a multivitamin.... But Big Brother knows what's best for us, of course. It really irks me that they want to make it more difficult to get vitamins and supplements when they don't have the foggiest idea about the benefits. I really don't see a benefit in having to get a prescription for it - it will be more expensive and probably less of the active ingredient. Just like the EU and its health directorate's program.

Hi Rider Fan I buy vitamins adults 50+. Vita-Vim we all know vitamin K helps blood clot when injured,about half of what a person needs is produced by our own intestinal bacteria. So when we are missing some as me I guess Vit K is needed at least that's what I been told.People that have heart meds need to use caution in using supplements of vitamin K .lol gail
