Vitamin K2 and Osteoporosis

Q. How much Vitamin K2 should I take for osteoporosis?


In general, the NEWSTART program does not promote supplementation unless there is a documented deficiency and supplementation can be conducted under the guidance of a physician.

With this understanding, Vitamin K2 supplementation has shown promise and is still being researched. 15 mg of Vitamin K2 three times daily is a typical dosage.

Research has shown the following lifestyle solutions for preventing and reversing osteoporosis:

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Eliminate animal protein, excess salt, caffeine, tobacco, soft drinks & aluminum containing antacids
  • Adequate Vitamin D daily sun exposure (except for winter months when north of latitude 35) can deliver sufficient Vitamin D if one exposes his/her face, arms, and hands to ¼ of the time it takes to turn the skin a light pink.
  • Weight-bearing exercise
  • Get to sleep by 10 p.m. and aim for 8 hours of sleep
