Vitamin K2 Questions
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)
You won't find it in traditional drug stores. Try The Vitamin Shoppe and maybe GNC or a "health food store". If they don't carry it they might be able to order for you.
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)
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)
So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (more)
I don't eat dairy, eggs, natto, or significant organ meats so I'm guessing my vitamin K2 intake is low? If we assume that I don't get any K2 from the bacteria in my gut, how much would I need to consume per day from supplements in order to... (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?
I'm in desperate need of a vitamin K2 MK-4 supplement and there are barely any products on the market that contain pure MK-4 without additives, in a low dose. Thorne makes a liquid K2 which is 1mg/drop... (more)
Currently I am not having any supplement, but two substances raised my interest: co-enzime q10 which is produced by the body but its production diminishes with age, to the extent that some people believe that it is one of the substances that... (more)
Hi everybody! Since I had some troubles when taking even small amounts of Vitamin D (2.000 IE) daily, even though I am deficient, I started taking Vitamin K2 in the form of MK-7 around two weeks ago. When taking 100mcg daily I just have some... (more)
I'm a nursing mother. I deal with severe autoimmunity and have been on the autoimmune paleo diet for about a year. I seem to negatively respond to dairy, perhaps even organic sources of dairy. My child seems to be sensitive to cow's milk... (more)
I've been looking for an answer to this for a while. Does anyone know what the accepted dosage recommendation for K2 (menatetrenone) is? Most of what I find is between 90 and 200mcg, and there's a Carlson Labs product containing 5mg ($44.75 @... (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)
After being scared to order K2 supplement from iherb and possibly not receiving the item due to it being a "banned" item(anything with vitamin K which this one had both K and K2) here in Canada, I finally decided to try ordering from well.ca which... (more)
Vit K2 is not banned here in Canada, there is just a maximum strength that is allowed to be sold by Law, it's 60mcg or 100mcg. I buy Vit K2 @ 100mcg from my health food store regularly.
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)
Dr K has made reference to testing grass-fed butters for Vit K2 levels and has said that Kerrygold tested at zero before, which didn't help with some people's suspicions that KG may not be entirely grass fed. But tartare provided a link to a fact... (more)
I wonder if the K2 doesn't vary wildly with season. I know that the butter is different colours depending on the time of year. Hence why high vitamin butter oil is only from cows fed on summer pasture.
so while i'm a paleo guy with my main meals, i always take some fermented cod liver oil (omega 3, v-D) and high vitamin butter oil (k2). some people say grass-fed tallow would have k2 as well, and i guess that makes sense. so anyone who's been... (more)
It may not matter wrt K2, but one advantage of butter oil over pasteurized dairy products is that it contains the Wulzen factor. If you're young that may not matter, but as you age, anything that helps with stiffness is worth including in your... (more)
