1.  Medical scientists have been examining the biological processes that lead to blood clotting. The medical researchers found that two different blood clotting factors, Vitamin K and Prothrombin, are at the highest levels of your life (110% of normal) on the eighth day of life.

  • In fact, Vitamin K is not even resident in the baby’s system until a few days after he is born. Vitamin K begins to be manufactured by bacteria in the intestinal tract heavily from days 5 thru 7 of life
