Purpose of review It has been hypothesized that insufficient intake of vitamin K may increase soft-tissue calcification owing to impaired γ-carboxylation of the vitamin K-dependent protein matrix γ-carboxyglutamic acid. The evidence to support this putative role of vitamin K intake in atherosclerosis is reviewed. Recent findings In animal models, multiple forms of vitamin K have been shown to reverse the arterial calcification created by vitamin K antagonists. The human data, however, are less… Expand
