The preponderance of evidence says we need optimal amounts of both D3, and K2…

Posted on

Calcium needs co-factors to work appropriately in our bodies, which is why I don’t recommend taking calcium by itself.  It requires vitamins D3, K2 which are both fat soluble, and minerals like magnesium, zinc and copper.

Based on extensive research, I recommend getting no less than 40 times your weight in D3, which would be 6,000 IU’s per day for a 150 LB  person.  The longest study ever done, which is still on going, shows us that 10,000 IU’s of D3 is safe and will get 96% of the population to optimal levels.  We also know people are very K2 deficient and there is no way to test for it.  The French and Japanese cultures get high amounts, and have very low levels of heart disease.

To get the optimal benefits of D3, this would be a perfect ratio of the 2 nutrients.

Vitamin D3 – 10,000 IU’s per day.

K2 – at least 400 mcg’s of K2 as well per day.




To benefit from the research above, consider adding these supplements below…

Stand alone single supplement by Dr Mercola – D3 Plus K2 – 1 to 2 caps per day

Or take these 2 separately: Most affordable way…

Vitamin D3 10,000 IU’s daily – D3 10,000 IU’s – 1 daily

K Complex 400 mcg’s of K2 daily – K1 & K2 Complex – 2 caps daily

Caution:  If you are on a blood thinner, do not take K Complex without medical guidance.


Nutrigenomics is the science that shows how foods and nutrients control our genes and how they express either optimal health or weakened health as we age.  This is a major breakthrough and it puts us in control of our genes. We are no longer victims of our parents genetic patterns, with no power to alter our state of health as we grow older.
