I have read lots about vitamin k 2 supplementation & absorption of Vit d3. I was wondering if this would be another vitamin to consider taking combined with b complex, d3, cysteine. Iodoral, magnesium, adrenal support etc. I actually have very yellow palms and soles of my feet and had quite bad jaundice as a newborn baby, and multiple doses of antibiotics for ear infections as a toddler. ( makes me question the quality of my gut absorption these days). I am also hyper mobile in my lumbar spine, knees, shoulders which may well be linked with a cartilaginous issue resulting from poor Vit k absorption. This poor absorption may have resulted from baby and early childhood issues which would have affected the gut absorption and hence the Vit k absorption. In essence I m asking if I should be taking sublingual vitamin k? Thank you

I saw this post and bookmarked it because I was curious as well. I am disappointed as you may be as well that no one got back to you. Have you found anything new at all about vitamin k since you last posted this?

Hi E I'm sorry I missed this query, for some reason it never came through to me. But you posted the same query on 30th April which I did reply to, evidently you didn't see it. Vitamin K is a neglected vitamin, I think everyone assumes we all eat enough green leafy veggies. But looking at the processed foods eaten by many, I doubt we do. Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) is found in green leaves, it then gets converted into K2 (menaquinone) by gut bacteria and various tissues. But many people have gut dysbiosis, with a lack of good bacteria, often because of antibiotics as in your case. A deficiency can also occur in people with a compromised liver, cystic fibrosis, or any inflammatory gut disease. Vitamin K2 is found in organ meats, egg yolks, and dairy products. Vitamin K2 has been found to reduce osteoporosis, calcification of arteries and cancer. Drugs which prevent coagulation block the action of vitamin K, conversely vitamin K2 can be given as an antidote for excess anti-coagulants. This is an excellent article here. Vitamin K is one of the cofactors for vitamin D ensuring deposition of calcium in bones, and preventing it's deposition in arterial plaque. Excess free calcium in the blood results in calcified arteries and heart disease, see here, here, here, here and here. Dr Cannell recommends all the cofactors for vitamin D should be taken, magnesium, vitamin K2, boron and zinc, see here. This complex is one he recommends. Being hyper mobile can be a result of hypothyroidism, but this brings us back to a lack of vitamin D and possibly K2, as a lack of vitamin D can result in hypothyroid conditions, I did give you those papers in my reply on the 23rd April. I also think you must have missed my answer to your last query of the 25th April see here. Unless there are two posts entitled UK Chiro from two different people! Continued below.

Hi E You didn't mention jaundice in your first reply, or the yellow palms and soles, but evidently your liver is struggling to detox. I know you're taking a liver support blend, but you could consider taking calcium D-glucarate. Oestrogen is metabolised in the liver by glucuronic acid, the process is known as glucuronidation. Glucuronidation is one of the major detoxification pathways of the liver. It removes carcinogens, toxins, tumour promoters, the sex hormones ie, the androgens and oestrogens, mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids, aromatic and heterocyclic amines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, various nitrosamines, drugs, fungi etc. It's then excreted in the bile, but an enzyme in the intestine called beta-glucuronidase reverses the glucuronidation process. It breaks the glucoronide bond between a toxin and glucuronic acid, and releases carcinogens, toxins and excess steroid hormones back into circulation. There's evidence beta-glucuronidase activity is increased in breast and prostate cancer. Calcium D-glucarate inhibits beta-glucuronidase, see here, here, here and here. Incidentally this enzyme is produced by undesirable gut bacteria, supplementing with probiotics suppresses the bacteria, and subsequently the beta-glucuronidase. Silymarin from milk thistle also inhibits beta-glucuronidase, plus it helps the liver detox. I do hope I haven't got muddled between two people in the UK both using Chiro UK in their subject line! Take care Wray
