Everyone knows about vitamin C. It fights the common cold, boosts immunity, and even improves skin. You may know about vitamin D. It fights disease, helps your mood, and regulates calcium. Vitamin A from sweet potatoes and vitamin B from salmon, and even omegas 3-6-9 are relatively well-known. But what about vitamin K?

Simply put: it’s an indispensable vitamin for heart health, immune function, and strong bones. But, most importantly, it’s extremely valuable for cancer patients.

(Natural News) Most egg-laying hens in the U.S. are confined in what’s known as a “battery cage.” This means that hens are kept in cages less than 80 square inches, where they are fed with a meal of corn waste and chemicals and forced to lay eggs.
