D3-K2 question...

Hello everyone...while odering supplements i came across a combo of D3 1000 IU/K2 90 mcg that is taken sublingulally (under the tongue) once a day.There was also another combo, 1000 D3/100mcg. K2, taken in pill form. I am currently taking an extra 400 D3 but want to up the dose just a bit. Would either of these combos be a good additon to my daily supplements? One better than the other? The multivitamin i take has vitamin K, but not the K2. Thanks for the help..take care...phyllis

Re: D3-K2 question...

Hi Phyllis: I really like the sublingual vitamins better than the tablets or softgel. If you have an absorption prob the sub-l works much better. With any tablet or capsule you still have to wait for your stomach to dissolve it, so that's why I like the sub-l it works really fast, plus I have trouble with some things getting stuck in my throat. I've been having trouble finding the K2, so I'm going to look for the one you mentioned. I take b complex that way and I don't get that stomach ache, or burping that some of those can cause. Plus I'm sick of swallowing all these vitamins and minerals, so it's a nice alternative to that. I also hate the taste of some vitamins, especially B and the sub-l doesn't taste like anything.

I would definitely try it...

P.S. You asked a question, a while back, about balance with your eyes shut, and my PT said when your eyes are shut you loose you visual clues that help to keep you still (not wobbly) so if you can balance with your eyes closed it improves your overall balance abilities.
