In brief: A wide range

There is no exact amount of K2 that is recommended with range often suggested (50mcg-150mcg).
You should not be on any anti-coagulants or blood thinning medication as the K2 may alter its effects. MK-7 is preferred over MK-4 as it is extracted from fermented soy and lasts longer in the body, where MK-4 is synthetic.
