Doc is offline, so I thought I 'd put this one out there.
I am taking a multi-vitamin which I just purchased (by Nature-made) called Multi For Her.
It has 100% of daily recommended for vitamin K.
I also eat a lot of foods that have vitamin K in them. Am I overdosing on it by taking this vitamin in conjunction with the foods I am eating on a regular basis? What are the dangers, possible effects of too much K?
I am concerned because I know that vitamin K helps with blood clotting, among other things like building bone tissue. I don't want to throw these vitamins out, I just bought em. And I like and am used to eating the foods I do - just want to know if I am putting myself at risk for a blood clot if I am getting too much K.
Being that there are three types of vitamin K; do all three kinds do the same thing in one's system?
I'd recommend switching to clotamin because it doesn't have any vitamin k if your taking anticagulants. but, are you on warfarin (coumadin) because you need to watch your level of k or are you just concerned? if your not on an anticoagulant I think your fine with the multi and the greens.
Thank you for your reply.
I do not take any anticoagulants and am not on any medications/prescriptions. We do have a history of heart disease in our family and I am considered (by some) to have borderline HBP, so I was concerned on that basis. And thanks for the tip about the non-K vitamin clotamin.
