Today we’re going to talk about what causes bruising without injury.

Many different things, including having a fatty liver, taking certain medications, or having a bile disorder, can increase your risk of bruising. But, the deeper cause of bruising seems to be a vitamin K1 deficiency.

Vitamin K1 is a fat-soluble vitamin stored in the liver. A few common symptoms of vitamin K1 deficiency are nose bleeds and varicose veins. The best sources of vitamin K1 are leafy green vegetables.

Vitamin K1 supports clotting without causing over-clotting. Extra vitamin K1 in the body is used for anti-inflammatory purposes or is converted into vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 helps prevent calcification in the arteries and joints and supports strong bones.

The average American only consumes one and a half cups of greens per day—you can’t get enough vitamin K1 that way.

A person’s microbes can make vitamin K1, but if there is a problem with the microbes, you can’t produce vitamin K1. Without a healthy microbiome, you also won’t be able to convert vitamin K1 to K2 or extract vitamin K1 from your food.

Iceberg lettuce is not a good source of vitamin K1, but dark leafy greens like parsley, kale, Brussels sprouts, and spinach are rich in K1.
