Hi HPG girl,
I iniatally took 15 milligrams of Carlsons a day. One dose of 3 5mg capsules. But I quickly changed to one Carlsons 5 mg capsule once a night with my D3 2000Iu's. Now I take one mg of Ulta K2 mk4 three times a day with my coconut oil too.
Here is the previous post I posted on brands.
I have used Carlson’s brand k2 which has 5 milligrams per capsule and comes with 60 capsules per bottle. You can break the capsule open and divide the powder into 4 parts and that would give you a little more than one milligram per part. Again please take the teaspoon of coconut oil or olive oil for added absorption.
The thorns brand is a liquid and each drop provides 1 milligram per drop. It is over 60 dollars per bottle and is said to be a lot like the very expensive butter oil from Green Pastures Brand stuff.
Personally on testimonies I have read about Thorn’s and Green Pastures butter oil, I believe the Carlson’s brand is just as good.
As is Ulta K2 Brand which comes in a smaller bottle with 90 much smaller capsules. (less filler). It has 15 mg’s per capsule. But the fifty dollar bottles are a little less than 35 dollars if you get 6 bottles of it which is the way I go now. 15 parts of this capsule means 15 (one Milligrams of K2 from one capsule) You can see the savings...
Carlsons K2 is at Amazon.
A poster hebsie posted this regarding Thorn’s K2 mk4. I have read several other posters on other blogs, who really like it. It would actually be easier to fool with than Carlson’s powder as each drop is one MILLIgram. ...Thornes also has a straight K2 product -- Thorne Research, Vitamin K2, 1 fl oz (30 ml)
Granted there's a typo in the Suppplement facts (in the link I provided), but it's 1mg per drop, with approx 1200 drops per bottle.
So it works out almost identically to four of the Carlson (5mg x 60 cap) product -- Carlson's is around $15 bottle, and Thorne's is $60 -- basically the same thing.
P.S. My wife likes the Carlson's 5 milligrams so much that I still buy them for her, still. She takes half a capsule in the morning and the other half at night for a total of 5 mg's daily.
