Have any of you bought Vitamin K2 online from the states? On Iherb it says that Canada doesn't allow supplements that contain vitamin K. It also says not to buy supplements for more than 90 days but I've bought more than that and it always got shipped fine. If any of you Canadians buy K2 online, can you tell me where? (Another reason I'm asking is because I checked the reviews for the specific brand of vitamin K I wanted to purchase and there are 2 recent Canadians that have bought it apparently... Well in january lol.)Anyone with knowledge of customs operations/regulations and all that mumbo jumbo , feel free to contribute.
Have any of you successfully used iherb to order Vitamin K2 with more than 120mg of it per serving that live in Canada? I also want to clarify that on iherb it says that you need your doctor to order the "banned" things if you want it.
K2 is not banned, but it is illegal to sell K2 supplements in Canada that contain more than 120mcg (I think) per serving. Absolutely ridiculous, I know. I think it has something to do with K's blood-clotting attributes and Canada classifying anything more than 120mcg as a drug.
I'm not sure what the rule is regarding bringing K2 over the border. I order this one online from a Canadian retailer - 120mcg K2 mk-7.
If that's true, thank God I moved from Canada to the US. Vitamin K2 is the most important vitamin I'll ever take. Canada is getting really f%^$#^ stupid about banning vitamins and supplements. They're trying to make it so that you have to get a prescription for many of them....yet the doctors there know absolutely nothing about supplements.
