I eat a low carb version of a paleo diet, mainly high fat meat and vegetables, and was wondering from a nutrient perspective what you would prefer between organic cultured butter from grassfed cows (Organic Pastures brand) which I've then... (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)
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)
Lots of K2 supplements say they are "soy-free". But if you dig deeper, you'll find they're almost all DERIVED from soy -- the soy is supposedly all processed out. I don't believe this, because of how sick I got from taking a tobacco-derived K2. ... (more)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
I started taking K2 (5mg) over a year ago. I started taking it at night, but moved it to the afternoon because my mouth started falling open as I slept, which makes for an awfully dry mouth in the morning. So, I kept moving the time I took it- I... (more)
hi. i am wondering what the optimal dose of calcium would be for a vlc diet. currently i am consuming approx. 1300mg. in the form of grated/shredded parmesian cheese. i find my joints feel stiffer after consuming servings of this and usually when... (more)
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)
Perhaps, my google skills fail me but I can't find an average for how much K2 is in grass-fed butter. Anyone know? EDIT: If K2 levels are as low as they seem, is supplementation a good idea?
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)
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)
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)
