Good news for all fans of green vegetables! Not long ago, a study was published in a science magazine, according to which broccoli, kale and co. could help in the fight against the corona virus. This is admittedly very simplistically expressed. But we can go a little deeper into the matter together.
Very severe cases of corona are accompanied by lung failure and blood clotting disorders. Since vitamin K plays a crucial role in blood clotting, researchers suspect that the blood clotting disorders in covid patients could be due to a vitamin K deficiency. However, they say it remains to be determined whether the vitamin deficiency promotes a severe course or whether the vitamin K deficiency is a concomitant of the infection or pneumonia.
