Vitamin K3 has a strong anti-hemorrhagic effect due to its essential role in hepatic synthesis of prothrombin and in coagulation process; it acts on the capillary vessels endothelia and on fibrinogen. Deficiency of Vitamin K3 deficiency causes hemorrhages and hypo protrhrombinemia. High doses of vitamin K3 activates the reticulohistiocytic system, produces diuresis (in generalized oedema), stimulates the functioning of bone marrow and liver.
