In Canada, vitamin K is known by another name. I believe we refer to it as one of the B vitamins, but for the life of me, I can not remember which one. I’m hoping that you can turn that light bulb on for me. Thanks.

Canadians don’t include vitamin K as a B vitamin. Since 1995, the U.S. and Canada have worked together to create the RDA’s (Recommended Dietary Allowance) for vitamins and minerals.

Vitamin K comes in different forms including phylloquinone in plants and menaquinone in animal products in addition to a synthetic form menadione.

The known B vitamins are:

B1 Thiamin
B2 Riboflavin
B3 Niacin
B6 Pyridoxine
B12 Cobalamin
