There are a couple of similar (but not the same) questions in the archives on this and it seems unlikely that anyone would overdose on K2 but if I take the Life Extension Super K supplement plus high vitamin butter oil (half a teaspoon) plus eat... (more)
It sounds like the K2 (MK4) is synthetic whereas the K (MK7) is sourced from fermented soy (natto).I want to take a K2 supplement. Which is best, and why?Sadly, I don't eat leafy greens so I do think I also need a K1 supplement. I haven't begun... (more)
Hello everyone! I eat a diet high in sardines, grassfed beef, pastured eggs, conifeious vegtables, leafy greens, MCT oil, coconut oil, and ghee with smaller amounts of nuts carrots, berries, and lemon/limes. The supplements I currently... (more)
So, I just received my SpectraCell results, showing functional deficiencies for carnitine, co-enzyme Q10, oleic acid and vitamin K2. Are all just below their borderline values. I'm slightly weirded out by this, as I consume red meat, olive oil... (more)
According to the below except from Wikipedia (with appropriate citations) k2 is converted from k1 in mammals regardless of gut bacteria. If this is true then is K1 just as good as K2? The MK-4 form of vitamin K2 is produced via... (more)
I would appreciate simple recipes using either spinach or broccoli, I'm currently experimenting with reversing tooth decay through sufficient k2 and calcium.
I don't know if the increased magnesium and K2 supplements are the cause, but I'm getting dramatically less tartar on my lower teeth. From what I recall, I think my dentist mentioned that tartar is calcification of saliva. If that's the case, it... (more)
I take mk-4 carlsons 5mg every other day and have noticed results like smooth and cleaner looking teeth which i am really pleased about! :D however since my mk-4 is nearly finished, i was thinking if it worth supplementing mk-7 as well but am... (more)
Just from the fact the MK4 is taken in milligrams and MK7 in micrograms, it seems that MK4 is safer. Also, I read on another forum that MK7 doesn't have that effect on teeth.
I think the answer is you should take the calcium and magnesium at the same time, and that the Vitamin D3 can be taken whenever. In fact, I think prescription mega dose vitamin D is given once/week. The brand of K2 I use is life extension k2... (more)
Propably, if you eat the whole animal, like kidneys, marrow, salivary glands? I wonder if its near the tongue, or somewhere else? Organs are like CPU the of the animal, they have everything. Muscle meat is just a casing ;)
Unfortunately, for most of my adult life (I am 32 now) I was morbidly obese (140-150 kilograms, 173 cm height). The last months though I have drastically changed my lifestyle and managed to lose 25 kilograms (I am 120 kg now). I also quit smoking... (more)
I'd recommend k2mk4 dops by Thorne @ 1mg/drop. I'd also recommend 3 drops per day with your fattiest meal. I recommend this across the board, and even for myself.
I'm looking for a natural source of vitamin K2 other than natto and am wondering about the level in fermented bean curd and fermented black beans (both of which, like natto, are fermented soybeans). These two inexpensive items are available at any... (more)
For every increase of 10 micrograms in the amount of vitamin K2 consumed daily, the risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) drops by 9 percent. This somewhat stunning statistic was noted as a result of a recent cohort study from the... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm just wondering if I should continue to supplement with Vitamin K2. I take 120mcg per day of MK-4. But I also eat 1-3 raw pastured egg yolks and grass-fed ground beef daily, homemade frozen grass-fed liver pills every other day or... (more)
I take k2 MK7 45mcg every other day, and Carlson MK4 5mg every day. I know that these can effect coagulation and can block the thinning effects of coumadin etc. However, I also take curcumin and eat raw turmeric root, and other blood thinning... (more)
Just curious to know what the current wisdom on this supplement is. I've been taking a few drops under the tongue of Thorne's liquid K2 and just want to be sure that it is still considered "safe" and "beneficial". Just worries me a bit seeing the... (more)
Have any of you bought Vitamin K2 online from the states? On Iherb it says that Canada doesn't allow supplements that contain vitamin K. It also says not to buy supplements for more than 90 days but I've bought more than that and it always got... (more)
Anyone notice any problems with increased UTI's and haematuria since starting paleo? Specifically those of you who have been supplementing with Carlson's K2 or fermented foods? Just wondering if there was a connection. I'm leaning toward the... (more)
The closest thread I've found along this line is here, which I'd like to piggy-back on for my own question: Is the vitamin K in cucumbers and/or pickles K1 or K2? I recently started using the downloadable version of CRON-o-meter (which I really... (more)
The first ingredient in the vitamin K2 softgels I bought from GNC is soybean oil (other than the K2), do you think the amount is at all significant? Is it worth a return?
My mom was diagnosed with osteoporosis in her left hip, and osteopenia in her right hip a year or so ago (she is 55), and unfortunately started taking Fosamax in May of 2011. As of late, she's been experiencing a host of horrible symptoms ranging... (more)
Hey all. I'll spare you the sordid details of the various health conditions I've inherited. Suffice it to say that after much research and consultation, I'm convinced that trying a Vitamin K2 (MK-4) supplement is a good idea for me. I'm aware... (more)
So, should Jack Kronk take K2? How much? Has he been doing it? Has it helped? http://jackkruse.com/osteoporosis-part-one/#comment-10032 "@Jeff It depends upon our guts. Think about our friend Jack Kronk on PH. He is a perfect example of a... (more)
