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 herbs like ginger, ginkgo, and fish oil. So, I am wondering if K2 is likely to effect the properties of these natural blood thinning substances like it does coumadin?

Vitamin K2 is mostly involved in the proper deposition of calcium (in our bones and teeth, and not in the soft tissue, joints, blood vessels). Vitamin K1 (found in leafy greens) is the one with a bigger role in blood clotting. Not sure to what extent K2 affects blood viscosity.
*Edited to say blood clotting, rather than blood thinning. Oops...that's what I get for posting from work and being semi-distracted, hehheh.
