Vitamin K Question
Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-4) 500 mcg 625 % RDA
Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) 500 mcg 625 % RDA
Vitamin K1 (Philloquinone) 1000 mcg 1250% RDA
My vitamin company has a new supplement containing Vitamin K (see above).
I take an older product they sell which contains 600 mcg. Vitamin K1, 200 mg.
magnesium, and a small amount of silicon. I take it about 3 or 4 times a week, not daily. I take their 3 tablet multi-vitamin daily which contains no Vitamin K. I also changed my diet to include Vitamin K containing food like kale, collards, etc. which I consume at least once a day.
I was thinking about switching to K2 from reading some of these posts and researching, but the amounts above sound too excessive and I'm afraid of blood clotting even though I have no circulatory problems that I know of.
I can't find any data that indicates what amount of Vitamin K could be dangerous regarding clotting and was wondering if anyone has done research. I am especially interested becasue I read Vitamin K reduces fractures of the hip where I have the osteopenia.
In addition I read that K1 converts to K2 in the body, so I was thinking switching to a K2 supplement might not be necessary.
Thanks for any info!
