K2 (MK-7) Has been reported to cause heart palpatations and is a blood thinning agent. Do not take this if you are currently on prescribed
Menaquinone is not a blood thinner. It plays a role in calcium absorption, regulation, and bone density, as I have tried to explain to you several
times... Secondly, it is the Vitamin K(different from K2), that is a blood CLOTTING agent, which you should not take if prescribed blood
In all actuality, Vitamin K2 has shown nothing but great promise and benefit to those with heart conditions, such as atherosclersosis, which would
require them to take blood thinners, in order to work around the logic of blocked arteries...
D3 - Deficiency can be restored quickly by casual exposure to sunlight. If you live in a relatively sunny climate there is no need to take this
supplement. Vitamin D toxicity can cause calcium buildup in the blood - hypercalcemia.
Here is a little information about Vitamin D...
Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphate. In humans, the
most important compounds in this group are vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Cholecalciferol and
ergocalciferol can be ingested from the diet and from supplements. The body can also synthesize vitamin D (specifically cholecalciferol) in
the skin, from cholesterol, when sun exposure is adequate (hence its nickname, the "sunshine vitamin").
Vitamin D is a label that applies to MANY forms; not just D3...Furthermore, that is the role of Vitamin K2 (menaquinone) to take calcium released from
the bones, or that has become deposited in the soft tissues, arteries, and organs, then deposit it into your bones and teeth.
Boron, which I also listed above, inhibits the parathyroid from secreting it's hormone, which is responsible for the release of calcium from the
Need I also point out this very inconvenient fact you seem to be forgetting on each one of your complaints for these nutrients...
Vitamin D Info
The LD50 is 619 mg/kg.
A 2007 risk assessment was made by two employees of the dietary supplement trade association Council for Responsible Nutrition, and their two
colleagues, who declared that they had no personal or financial conflicts of interest. They suggested that 250 micrograms/day (10,000 IU) in healthy
adults should be adopted as the tolerable upper limit. In rats an oral LD50 of 619 mg/kg is noted. All known cases of vitamin D toxicity with
hypercalcemia have involved intake of over 1,000 micrograms/day (40,000 IU) if taken in an attempt to increase the levels of vitamin D. Most
officially-recorded historical cases of vitamin D overdose have occurred due to manufacturing and industrial accidents. In the United States, overdose
exposure of vitamin D was reported by 284 individuals in 2004 (a randomly selected year), leading to 1 death.
How much Vitamin D3 did I recommend?
You need to take anywhere from 250-500 mcg a day of Vitamin K2. As for Vitamin D3, you should take anywhere from 5000-10000 IU(International
Units) a day.
Shut up dude....Seriously just shut up....That is the nicest thing I can really say right now, other than you have no idea what you are talking
These are mega-doses by no means...Your perception of what is necessary and what is not, is just severely lacking...
