Just curious to know what the current wisdom on this supplement is. I've been taking a few drops under the tongue of Thorne's liquid K2 and just want to be sure that it is still considered "safe" and "beneficial". Just worries me a bit seeing the constant news about calcium supplementation now being considered risky, and I wanted to check in to see if there were any updates or recent medical literature about K2 (re it's efficacy, safety, etc...)
I have celiac/wheat allergy and my digestion was wrecked for a while. I definitely saw the effects on my nails (weird ridges, more prone to breakage, random indents and spots). Right now, I'm taking a d3/k2 supplement that comes in a coconut oil base + magnesium, as well as zinc, which my endo told me I was deficient in. It hasn't been long enough to make any sort of judgement just yet but I'll update my progress in a couple of months.
I have experimented with the Thorne drops and with the Green Pastures Butter Oil. I find that any supplemental K2 makes my skin dry (and dry in a weird, papery kind of way) -- have seen others here say the same, but still don't understand the mechanism since it's widely reported to help dry skin, not cause it. It may be that I get enough K2 already from pastured butter and aged raw milk cheese.
I am really interested in getting this right as I have mild, early onset osteoporosis. Currently I supplement magnesium and d3 but not calcium or k2. I'm torn between adding butter oil to the dairy and eggs etc I eat versus a k2 supplement. Also having briefly read some (ok, controversial) Ray Peat stuff I'm not sure I even get enough calcium. Help!
