I don't take any supplements. But, that's because I have kidney disease and all the stuff good for bones are not good for kidneys. Like calcium. And all those healthy dark leafy greens are full of potassium which is bad for me too. (I can only eat iceberg lettuce.).

So there really isn't anything I can do to support my weakening bones except monitor them and move cautiously.

The other members of the team are much more knowledgeable about supplements - what do you folks do to get your K?

Thank you for the article. Do you actually take both supplements yourself?

You actually need both. Here's a very easy to read article about them and their relationship to calcium and vitamin D3. (You'll need to copy/paste the link into a browser window because once again my iPhone won't add a link using SP's button above.)

Is it Vitamin K1 or K2 that I should be taking and what should the dosage be?

from NaturalNews.com, 12/17/12 article:

"Vitamin K - a nutrient associated with green, leafy vegetables - may play a critical role in bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis, according to a study conducted by researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, Yale University, Villanova University, and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The researchers discovered that a poorly understood protein called osteocalcin appears to be essential to protecting bones from fractures, but that it can only be absorbed by bones through the action of vitamin K."

On another note: When you look at the list of articles in this forum you can see that no one makes any comments.

I don't mind continuing to issue these article links as long as folks are reading them. Just this once, would you reply with a wave emoticon or whatever if you are interested in my continuing informational posts. Thanks!
