Rutica Tablet is an effective hemostatic which contains Phytonadione (Vitamin K1), the synthetic form of Vitamin K, that plays a critical role in the blood clotting process. Vitamin K, a fat soluble vitamin, when ingested orally is absorbed by the bile salts.
The Vitamin K serves as a cofactor in the critical cellular processes of synthesis of coagulation proteins. Coagulation proteins involved in the process majorly include, prothrombin, clotting factors (VII, IX, X). Deficiency of Vitamin K leads to delayed blood clotting or spontaneous/incessant bleeding and liver disease. Presence of the Vitamin K assists the cascade of events in the coagulation process.
