Does Vitamin K2 Thicken Blood
Would taking vitamin k2 help prevent blood clots that may occur whilst taking raloxifene for osteoporosis?
Is vitamin K supplement a blood thinner or a blood thickener? should I take vitamin k2 supplement while I am taking vitamin D 2000IU supplement?
Neither: Hi. Vitamin K is required for gamma-carboxylation of glutamic acid in the clotting factors. Too little vit. K makes you unable to make the clotting factors. This is basically how warfarin works. But clotting factors are tightly regulated, and taking a vit. K supplement if you're not deficient will have no effect on clotting. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Do we need to take vitamin K2 with vitamin D3 for optimum absorption of D3?Or, D3 alone is enough?
Vit D3 absorption: Wow. Excellent question! Scientific evidence shows that vit D absorption itself is not strongly influenced by vit K1 or K2 or K3. Data do show that D3 is superior to D2 in repleting D deficiency. Vit K2 importantly activates calcium uptake into bone matrix. K2 elevates osteocalcin = a "bone building" compound.
