Do you have any suggestions for the best supplement that would have say 10000 IU of D3, with the proper corresponding amount of K2 (MK-7), Vitamin A, and Zinc?

    One of this years suggestions on the VDC questionnaire that asks basically what would you like to see the VDC “tackle” if there are any extra funds, Many people seemed to be interested in a supplement that would have everything in it just like you are inquiring about. To my knowledge and you can keep checking back on your question to see if anyone else knows of any, the thing that comes close is Biotech’s D3 Plus. See below.
    D3 Plus:
    Excellent source of natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) (4800 iu)
    Minerals important for vitamin D metabolism, including magnesium, zinc, and boron
    Vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 to direct calcium deposition to bones instead of soft tissues, a factor in both skeletal and cardiovascular health*
    Formula endorsed by the Vitamin D Council, an organization with a mission to end the worldwide vitamin D deficiency epidemic by means of outreach, awareness, treatment, research and activism
    You would have to add another Biotech 5000iu to it and it does not have the A!

      Thank you so much for your reply. I did see that brand and supplement in my search. The only problem is they don’t specify how much K1 and K2 other than the combined total of 800 mcg. My understanding is K2 MK-7 is really the important one here. Much of K1 is not absorbed and just gets passed. I sent Biotech an email and asked if they could give more detail on the actual amounts of each K vitamin. I will post back here as soon as I get a response

    You may want to read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/blog/dr-cannell-on-vitamin-k2/ rather than me trying to explain. It is a good article and will clear up some misconceptions that only K2 is any good. At the end of the article Dr. Cannell says “However, as far as getting enough vitamin K2, the best thing to do is eat your greens.” It makes me smile every time!
