It’s well known that D3 helps with calcium intake into bones but not many knows that it should be taken with particular form of vitamin K2 called menaquinon (MK7), so the calcium wouldn’t build in your arteries but go straight into bones. This dose of 300 mcg is good if you take D3 10000 IU. ‼️Remember, that normally it’s recommended just 2000 IU of vitamin D3 a day. Starting from 5000IU is a medical dose and should be taken with at least 100 mcg K2 (MK7), usually prescribed by doctors. ❗️So, please, do your research and make a lab blood test to see if you have vitamin D deficiency or not, as overtaking D3 can lead to intoxication, because it’s a fat soluble vitamin and got stored in a liver‼️ If you find this review is useful, please, press a like button👍🏼, thank you 😁🙌🏻

I have bought this NOW brand of MK-7, Vitamin K2, extra-strength for a few months now and I am thrilled to have found it in the 300mcg strength. This works great for my bone health and the dosage is perfect for what my healthcare provider wants for me. This bottle comes in the 60 capsules size which is a two month supply for me. This is a nice cost saving measure for me. The capsules are easy to swallow with no aftertaste or stomach issues noticed. The quality is fantastic and I will be purchasing this product for years to come. The product comes in a colorful bottle that is easy-to-read and open. Overall, I give this product a 5 star rating and I would definitely recommend this product to others.

I use this as an important cofactor for vitamin D3 (along with vitamin K2 MK4). Vitamin K2 directs calcium to where it's needed in the body and helps avoid unhealthy calcification in the body, and also hypercalcaemia. Along with vitamin K2 I take high doses of D3 and no hypercalcaemia shows up in blood tests. It's important to note that I don't take calcium supplements as these will cause hypercalcaemia. For more information on that read the book Death by Calcium: Proof of the Toxic Effects of Dairy and Calcium Supplements, by Thomas E. Levy.

This is the researched, trademarked form of vitamin k2 at the dosage studied in order to improve cardiovascular health. Vitamin k2 mk-7 can inhibit calcification of inflammatory plaques, the primary mechanism of heart disease progression. NOW Foods has exemplary quality control and well documented testing of raw materials, not to mention competitor's products as well.

I take 60k IU of D3 daily, thus I need 600 mcg of vit K2 to regulate my D3 intake. Would love seeing NOW manufacture vit K2 with 600 mcg capsules.

I take it with lots of D3. It helps control calcium in the body. Calcium should stay in your bones mainly and this keeps it where it belongs.

I was very excited when I learned about MK-7 and have been taking it now for quite some time. According to many experts, MK-7 is as good, or better, at building bone than pharmaceutical bone building medication. And, it works with your body rather than against it. When you know how MK-7 builds bone, I think you'll agree that the benefits are enormous. Osteoclasts break down old bone. Osteoblasts help to build new bone. The vast majority of bone building medication increases bone density by inhibiting the osteoclasts ability to break down old bone but does not help to build new bone. That’s why one of the side effects listed by these types of medications is unusual fractures. Older bone is more brittle and breaks easier than new bone. Density does not necessarily equal strength. MK-7 works on both levels. It inhibits the breakdown of older bone but also increases the osteoblast's ability to produce new healthy bone. This builds bone density with strong healthy bones. The capsules are very small in size making them easy to take. Yet, each capsule contains a generous dosage of 300 mcg making one bottle last for two months. Of course, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and boron are also necessary for it to work its wonders.

Size is ok not too large. Ingredient also good. I heard vitamin K is good for bones so I take this instead of calcium. I learned we can get calcium quite easily nowadays but lack of magnesium and vitamin K2 .

One of the few out there that has a higher level of vitamin K. Take it with vitamin D daily. Always fast delivery, will not order elsewhere.
