Vitamin K supplement questions:
Q. What is the maximum number of vitamin K pills that I could take daily?
A. This is a question most appropriate for your health care provider who knows your overall medical history and has reviewed your blood studies. Before you take a vitamin K pill, discuss with your doctor, particularly if you have a coagulation or blood clotting problem and if you are taking blood thinners such as Coumadin, also known as warfarin.
Q. I understand that vitamin K helps clotting while the enzyme nattokinase is a blood thinner, is that true?
A. Yes, nattokinase enzyme has blood-thinning potential while vitamin K helps clotting. Nattokinase is available over the counter without a prescription

Associations have been found between various micronutrients and cardio-metabolic outcomes. Vitamin K deficiency has been associated with increased calcification of the main arteries and with insulin resistance. The present study aimed to examine the association between vitamin K intake and cardio-metabolic outcomes including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome. A systematic review of the literature was performed in January 2010. No associations were found between vitamin K1 intake and coronary heart disease (CHD) or stroke in multivariate analyses. No differences were seen in the prevalence of diabetes in a trial of vitamin K1 supplementation. Two cohorts examined the effects of vitamin K2 intake on the incidence of CHD; both found significant associations where higher vitamin K2 intake was associated with fewer CHD events. Few studies have examined the effects of vitamin K intake on clinical outcomes relevant to cardio-metabolic disorders. None of the studies used biomarkers. Currently there is no evidence for an effect of vitamin K1, but results for vitamin K2 look promising. Further prospective studies are required to confirm these findings.
