    vitamin K2

    thought this was interesting. http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig5/mercola46.1.html In my opinion worth looking into.

    That's what I have been hearing. Unfortunately, I cannot take excess Vitamin K since I am on anticoagulation medication, Warfarin.

    JT Look into it a little closer, the Vit K that raises clotting factors is K1, K2 is a completely different animal. From what I have read K2 should not affect your blood thickness.

    K2 is one of my handful of supplements. I likely get some from meat and eggs but I feel it prudent to cover my bases.

    trapperjohnme, thanks for pointing that out. I will ask my doctor what they think about it before I try it.

    Today I ordered the Carlson's brand K2 that is listed in Cillikat's supplement page (it's the '4' kind, as opposed to the MK-7, but I ordered that one too). Anyway, I noticed that the Carlson's brand is 5 mg, way higher concentration the Mercula's recommendation of 150 mcg/daily. But I think that some studies on treating osteoporosis were done using this higher 5 mg dosage.

    150mcg seems like a bit much. Would anywhere close to that much possibly be found in nature? 1 cup of natto, 300 something calories and enough soy to grow a man breasts only has 40mcg. I have been taking 120mcg every 3 days, is there a good reason to take more?

    I think your dose is totally reasonable. I don't take them every day.

    Fwiw though there is the study dose comparing 5 mg K2 with fosamax. It's been ages since I've read it but the K2 worked better iirc.

    when I was taking high doses regularly, it was for specific reasons relating to bone density.
