It sounds like the K2 (MK4) is synthetic whereas the K (MK7) is sourced from fermented soy (natto).I want to take a K2 supplement. Which is best, and why?Sadly, I don't eat leafy greens so I do think I also need a K1 supplement. I haven't begun... (more)

There seems to be such a split of opinion on MK4 vs. MK7, and dosage is all over the place too. I have no clue. I found a good source of MK7 from natto, and since natto is one of the rare soy products that is considered acceptable in most real... (more)
