Using vitamin D may bring down the amount of vitamin K2. Results are found by measuring the amount of carboxylated proteins. The current suggestion is to take 100 mcg mk7 for every 1000 IU of vitamin D. I would use 200 mcg as a minimum though. Taking 1000 mcg of mk7 does no harm so nothing to be concerned about there.

Here's a link that has more links down the page:  Vitamin D/MK-7 Ratios

Thank you for the link MrGeorge. There seems to be no direct causation link discovered yet but it reconforts me taking moderate doses of both.

There is just speculation right now with a little verification so I'll be looking for more evidence.

It would be important as many are taking amounts of vitamin D much higher than just years ago. If more vitamin K2 is needed then there's a lot of people who may not get the full benefit of calcium distribution to the proper places.

A single Super K was enough for me for at least up to 10K iu Vitamin D, my wife on the other hand didn't get enough even with 3 Super K, she has documented bone degeneration though. So mid last year I switched her over to Osteo-K and I'm now slowly ramping her down from 22.5mg/day Vitamin K MK4 (3 Osteo-K pills per day) as her SpectraCell MNT Vitamin K level finally came back good.

There's testing of the blood levels for vitamin K, I don't know how important this is. I believe there is a functional test that measure carboxylated osteocalcin which would seem a better test.
