Dihydrophylloquinone: One Research-Backed Side-Effect
Dihydrophylloquinone belongs to the vitamin K family.
Dihydrophylloquinone is only present in hydrogenated plant oils. Hydrogenation of plant oils appears to decrease the absorption and biological effect of vitamin K in the bone.
Higher dihydrophylloquinone intakes are associated with lower bone mineral density (BMD) in both men and women. It leads to a potential risk factor for bone fractures.
