No, it's not likely as only specific cultures create k2. The culture that creates natto And some Types of cheeses like Brie and Gouda make K2 mk7. Just because something is fermented doesn't mean it has k2... It has to be the right culture.... (more)

You won't find it in traditional drug stores. Try The Vitamin Shoppe and maybe GNC or a "health food store". If they don't carry it they might be able to order for you.

Vitamin K2 is mostly involved in the proper deposition of calcium (in our bones and teeth, and not in the soft tissue, joints, blood vessels). Vitamin K1 (found in leafy greens) is the one with a bigger role in blood clotting. Not sure to what... (more)

Hello, Does anyone know if 1mcg of vitamin K2 MK-7 equals 1mcg of MenaQ7? Also, how refined is MenaQ7? I was wondering about traces of soy in it. Thank you

So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (more)

As long as they are miscible (fancy chemist word for mixable), it should work as you describe. Any oil will do it too. Don't bother with MCT oil, try olive oil.

Vit K2 is not banned here in Canada, there is just a maximum strength that is allowed to be sold by Law, it's 60mcg or 100mcg. I buy Vit K2 @ 100mcg from my health food store regularly.

I wonder if the K2 doesn't vary wildly with season. I know that the butter is different colours depending on the time of year. Hence why high vitamin butter oil is only from cows fed on summer pasture.
