K2 consumption: Pastured grass-fed Tallow VS High Vitamin Butter Oil

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 11, 2011 at 2:20 PM

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 doing k2 wanna share where they get their k2 consumption and why the preference?

p.s. also wondering could high quality ghee replace high vitamin butter oil to go with fermented cod liver oil (isn't there a nutritional issue of "activator x" to go with fermented cod liver oil?)

I don't believe that the WF has been identified the way Activator X has been.

Wulzen factor, Activator X... what about modern nomenclature? The latter is supposed to be Vitamin K2 MK4. What is the Wulzen factor supposed to be?

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 diet ;).

I don't know if the heat needed to make ghee or tallow might similarly inactivate WF the way pasteurization does.

The Wulzen Factor has been identified as stigmasterol.
