K Free Daily is privately owned and operated by Dr. Rick Hall, PhD, RD, FAND. Rick is a clinical nutrition professor who was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden, a blood clotting disorder, after suffering from deep vein thrombosis and a pulmonary embolism that were both discovered after a hip fracture caused by a cycling accident. After a second blood clot was discovered in early 2015, he acquired K Free Daily, the multivitamin without vitamin K (a nutrient that helps blood clot).
K Free Daily was formulated by a clinical pharmacist and Mayo Clinic registered dietitian working in clinical settings with over 20 years of nutrition research and practice experience.
Over the years, our team has worked with an increasing number of patients on warfarin and other anticoagulants who struggle with the inability to take a multivitamin that does not affect their INR. Patients on warfarin often avoid many nutritious fruits and vegetables due to the high levels of Vitamin K content; therefore, indirectly eliminating other essential nutrients from their diet.
Sharing patient’s frustration, we developed K Free Daily, the multivitamin without vitamin K. With our combined knowledge and expertise on medication, cardiovascular disease, drug-nutrient interactions, and nutrition, each ingredient and amount has been thoroughly researched to design the perfect multivitamin for patients on anticoagulants.
