The spontaneous rupturing of small blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin can be prevented or eliminated completely by absorbing more Vitamin K.
Good sources of this vitamin include:
– green leafy vegetables (spinach, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, lettuce, watercress)
– fish flour
– fruit (much smaller amounts)
In addition to eating more of the above foods you can use creams or ointments containing Vitamin K. These preparations, applied directly to the skin, are very effective for combating the rupturing of capillaries and the formation of bruises.
