People get vitamins mainly from the foods they eat or from vitamin tablets. Give a different way in which people get some vitamin K.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin which helps prevent bleeding  and it is synthesized by the bacterias which reside in the human intestines. Hence it is important to give this particular vitamin to a premature- babies soon after birth as they lack the intestinal flora at birth and are at a risk of bleeding.
