Support of Bone Health
With its very good supply of calcium and its excellent supply of magnesium and vitamin K, chard provides standout bone support. Although many people have already learned about the connection between minerals like calcium and health of bones, the role of vitamin K in support of bone has not received nearly as much media attention. Vitamin K1 helps prevent excessive activation of osteoclasts, the cells that break down bone. Additionally, friendly bacteria in our intestines convert vitamin K1 into vitamin K2, which activates osteocalcin, the major non collagen protein in bone. Osteocalcin anchors calcium molecules inside of the bone. All of these vitamin K related mechanisms point to the importance of vitamin K rich foods for bone health.
