This is basically how warfarin works. But clotting factors are tightly regulated, and taking a vit.

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.
