I take 10,000IU of D3 daily (two 5,000IU doses approx. 12 hours apart.

I also take LE's Super K w/Advanced K2 Complex - my question is - with the increased amount of D3 - should I be taking 1 or of the Super K's?

I'm trying to make sure this doesn't happen:

Once the proteins become carboxylated there seems there should be less demand for vitamin K, it has already done it's job.

I would guess that taking more of K would carboxylate the proteins quicker but after that you would just need enough to maintain that state of protein carboxylation.

The paper states that vitamin D increases the number of proteins to be carboxylated so then it would just take longer for the vitamin K to carboxylate the greater number of proteins and again after they are carboxylated you would just need to maintain that state.

Since there are more carboxylated proteins to be maintained I would guess the maintainance dose of vitamin K to be higher but not sure about how much more, overshooting shouldn't hurt anything as some people have natto everyday and natto has about 800 mcg of MK7 per 100 gm serving.

I wouldn't take this as gospel, it's just how I undrstand it by a few articles I read.

I noticed you take the vitamin D 12 hours apart, I don't think this is necessary as the variation of vitamin D levels should be pretty consistent and not varying over such a short period.

If you take the vitamin K 12 hours apart it would make sense as the vitamin K levels drop fairly quickly except MK7 which gradually decreases over days and builds up over days and weeks.

Thanks for the responses!

I got to thinking about the "why separate the dosage" re: the D3 and I agree - I'm going to take it as one dose, instead, and let the single K2 handle it. Pete
