| | Vitamin D3 & Vitamin K2
I was recently diagnosed with low Vit D (registered at 20) and put on high level supplements - 50,000IU per week.
Read many articles and posts about taking the megadose of D and high blood calcium levels - K2 is needed to send the calcium to the right place so it doesn't remain in the arteries.
I had a bad reaction to the K2 supplement I took today. Headache, shallow breathing, pain in chest, numbness of tongue.
Unfortunately, all the articles I've read thus far say that there is no known toxic levels of K2. This is wrong. Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin that your body stores, so you CAN get too much of it by taking additional supplements.
I have a very good diet and only take a multivitamin (with a low amount of K1 in it) along with my prescription D. The K2 supplement is the only thing different in my routine that could have caused this reaction.
Googled it and there are many other people are experiencing the same reaction.
Be very careful with the K2 supplements as they are coagulants and can cause very negative reactions.
