    Natto actually has about 1000mcg of MK-7 per 100g serving, so 150mcg per day is in no way too much I think. Personally, I have a 75g pack of natto, scrambled eggs, and a mini cup of vinegared mozuku seaweed (is lightly sweetened unfortunately) for breakfast almost every day. No ill effects that I can tell, and there are just too many confounding variables for me to link health improvements I've noticed solely to the MK-7 and whatever MK-4 I get from eggs etc.

      Where did you get 1000mcg? Nutritionfacts says 40 per cup.

        I think Nutritionfacts might be listing only the K1 content or something... K2 isn't (yet) typically measured as far as I can tell

          MK-4 or MK-7? Stephen at wholehealthsource seems to hold MK-4 in higher regard whereas others like WAPF like MK-7 from what I have read.

          If you couldn't only supplement one, which form would it be?
