Unclotting Vitamin K

01

We’re looking at some new multivitamin products at work, and since my last post on Vitamin D, I was wondering what other vitamins I’m missing from my daily diet.  So everyone’s heard of Vitamin A, B, C, D, and E but what’s up with Vitamin K and why did we skip Vitamin F, G, H, and I?  The answer:  a German scientist who discovered this vitamin named it K because of its primary property in blood clotting (or “Koagulation” in German).

Where to Get Vitamin K

Naturally occurring Vitamin K (phylloquinone) comes from foods like green, leafy vegetables and green tea.  Some of my favorite products that are high in Vitamin K are:

  1. Broccoli
  2. Spinach
  3. Kale
  4. Romaine Lettuce
  5. Parsley
  6. Brussel Sprouts (New for me! I just discovered this while at a restaurant last Friday.  I never thought I could like this vegetable.)
  7. Collard Greens (so good!)
  8. Cucumber
  9. Tomato
  10. Blueberry

The other form (menaquinones) comes from bacteria in the gut (yes, healthy bacteria lives in our intestines).  Bacteria in the gut produce a range of vitamin K2 forms, each with side chains composed of a variable number of chemical compounds.  Menaquinones can also be found in food that contains bacteria like cheese and natto, or in animals that also produce the vitamin via their gut bacteria.

Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Color Review & Swatches

Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Color2

Sonia Kashuk Very Berry Satin Luxe Lip Color ($9.99) is my new go to HG (holy grail) berry pink shade for Spring looks. This is one of those really lovely shades of rosy pink berry that quite looks like Lipstick Queen Jean Queen or Shiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer in RD506 and at half the price with a fair more luxurious formula.

True story, Sonia’s Satin Luxe Lip Color is one of thee best budget lipsticks I’ve had the pleasure of using.

I’ve reviewed Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in the past but it still remains one of the nicest lipsticks around for under $10 bucks. Honestly, applying it and wearing it you’d think it cost $30.

This is a super buttery satin lipstick with an SPF 16. The color glides across lips like melted butter and has a soft, creamy consistency that wears weightlessly on lips for a solid four hours without feathering or migrating. It has a subtle vanilla flavor to me although it is promoted as fragrance-free. The creamy texture lacks shimmer and sparkle and has an satin matte finish that lays on lips evenly offering full coverage on a single application with a nice sheen finish.
