    Basically, consider 400 units (10 mcg) per day
    But, NHS mid Essex
    Routine screening of vitamin D levels and prescribing of Vitamin D is not advisable.
    Both clinical symptoms and risk factors must be present before measuring Vitamin D levels (25OHD).
    As yet there is no clear evidence to prove the risks from non-symptomatic Vitamin D deficiency.
    Vitamin D levels less than 30nmol/L (12ng / ml)
    Oral capsules, 40,000 units (1,000 mcg or 1 mg) colecalciferol weekly for 7 weeks
    (400 units per day = 2,800 units per week)
    Vitamin D levels 30 - 50 nmol/L (12 - 20 ng / ml)
    Buy your own, 400 units per day
    Vitamin D levels more than 50 nmol/L (20 ng / ml)
    Buy your own, consider, 400 units per day
    Vitamin K1
    Involved in blood coagulation (1929)
    Found in plant foods like leafy greens
    Vitamin K2
    Mostly bacterial origin
    Animal-based and fermented foods
    Adult vitamin K Adequate Intakes, 90 -120 mcg
    Fermented foods
    High fat dairy from grass fed cows
    Animal organs
    Gut bacteria
    Vitamin K might play a role, osteoporosis and coronary heart disease
    Vitamin K-dependent proteins
    Vitamin K2 supplements may improve bone and heart health, while vitamin K1 has no significant benefits
    Promotes bone calcification
    Three-year low-dose menaquinone-7 supplementation helps decrease bone loss in healthy postmenopausal women
    May prevent tissue calcification
    Tissue-specific utilization of menaquinone-4 results in the prevention of arterial calcification in warfarin-treated rats
    Vitamin K2 (MK-4) reduced blood vessel calcification whereas vitamin K1 did not
    Dietary intake of menaquinone is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease: the Rotterdam Study
    K2 may help with dental health
    Especially with vitamin D

    Synergistic effect with vitamin D
    Vitamins D and K as pleiotropic nutrients: clinical importance to the skeletal and cardiovascular systems and preliminary evidence for synergy
    Prevalence of hypercalcemia related to hypervitaminosis D in clinical practice
    Determine the concentrations of 25-OH-vitamin D at which the risk of hypercalcemia
    N = 25,567
    Hypervitaminosis D was defined at serum 25-OH-vitamin D more than160 nmol/L (64 ng / ml)
    382 samples were identified as the first record of hypervitaminosis D
    39 presented hypercalcemia (10.2%)
    Some had 25-OH-vitamin D levels between 161 and 375 nmol/L.
    (most subjects presented hypercalcemia at serum concentrations of 25-OH-vitamin D less than 375 nmol/L, 150 ng / ml)
    In 15 subjects, hypercalcemia could be directly attributed to vitamin D
    In no case, serum calcium achieved concentrations considered as critical values (more than13 mg/dl).
    Hypercalcemia due to vitamin D represented less than 4% of the total hypervitaminosis D detected
    Less than 0.1% of the tests performed.
    No strong evidence proves that moderate amounts of vitamin D are harmful without an adequate intake of vitamin K. However, research is ongoing, and the picture might become clearer in the near future.

    I had my yearly checkup in June. It went as it typically does until we got to the blood work. My doctor was telling me the blood work she was ordering and she had not mentioned vitamin D. I asked her why we were not checking my vitamin D levels and she said they don't. If they checked it at some point previously (prior years) and the patient was deficient they would have been told to take it and if they took it their numbers would be better, if they didn't it would not. No need to check it. I said 'Isn't there a relationship between a person's vitamin D levels and how bad COVID-19 does you?' She said yes. So during a pandemic that has killed a number of people why wouldn't doctors as a practice check for a deficiency in their patients that could potentially save them if they get COVID-19? That does not make sense to me. This pandemic has opened my eyes about the healthcare industry.

      I was told by my doctor that most insurance companies don’t cover that test. I told him I don’t care, I’ll pay the difference. I now get it checked 2 times a year. I was told if our vitamins D levels are in the 80-90 range our chances of getting cancer and other diseases is very low because our immune system is strong. I believe it, my sister has strong D levels and she never gets sick

    Thanks for mentioning autoimmune diseases. I have subclinical Hashimotos (discourages me from getting vaxxed, I feel vulnerable to extra/ unresearched disturbances of my immune system) and your vid has led me to find out more quality research on the link between Vit D and autoimmune issues.It seems clear from numerous articles that Vit D supplementation, as well as some elements, are highly advised. Not one doctor in 20 years has mentioned it.

      To SA in comment below: You may be right about any licenses Dr. Campbell has framed and up on his wall, however, that is only part of the "unquestionably qualified to advise" theory. In my opinion, a HUGE part of this equation is . . . how determined a professional healthcare worker is in consistently delivering the TRUTH to his patients. Anyone on a search for medical integrity who has tuned regularly into this channel, (and a multitude of other channels), has probably realized that for a good while the medical industry has been practicing some irrational, and possibly even deceitful, policies and procedures when treating patients. For years now, I know I have left many doctors' offices wondering if most of the advice and treatment administered had more to do with their bottom line ($$$) than anything else. For sure, the highly deficient protocol selected to treat COVID patients in every hospital in the USA in the last two years certainly firmly implanted that conclusion in my brain. Ultimately, in my opinion, not only a doctor's willingness, but their INSISTENCE on sharing the TRUTH with their patients, (come what may professionally), is just as important as the number of licenses on their wall.

    I’d lived in Chicago for years, always low Vitamin D levels. Moved south, but levels didn’t rise much, though I was taking about 2000 in/day sporadically. Doc told me this was plenty. Because of these videos, I began taking D religiously. After about 3 months of this, I realized I was sleeping really well and much less depression. Doc confirmed normal range. When I went to get new supply, I realized I’d actually been taking 10,000 iu/day! That’s the dose it took, but no doc had taken me seriously. Thanks to these videos encouraging us to keep up levels!

      I also take 10,000 IUs a day. My naturopath informed me everyone uses about 7,000 a day so if you take less you may be running at a deficit. My gp tolf me just to take 1,000 iu and nothing changed. Naturopathy it is for most things anyway. K2 is also very important.

    I went to my GP with extreme exhaustion, anger issues, up and down in emotion, and feeling borderline depressed. I thought it was baby blues or postpartum depression, but she checked my blood for vitamin d and said my numbers were through the floor. Prescribed me 50,000 IUs/week for 3 months and it was life changing! From the first 30 mins I took the first pill I felt instantly better. No more falling asleep behind the wheel (literary, I had to pull over the road to sleep smh). My previous doctor had given me anti depressants without checking for vitamin D. I wish docs would check for Vit D before prescribing anti-depressants.

    Going back about 20 years there was a guy in Edmonton that his 17 year old son came down with MS. The Globe and Mail in Toronto Canada covered the story. The father was a geologist I believe. He decided to study the world and discovered that anybody around the equator did not come down with MS or diabetes, he contributes it to lack of vitamin D. He put his son on 4,000 units of vitamin D a day and his Son never had another MS attack.

And my doctor has man 5000 units a day as I have lung cancer. It helps with depression it helps with everything, it is a hormone which also affects your epigenetics

    Love that you guve your citations and say “don’t take my word for it” (among similar expressions). Also that Dr Campbell never condescends to his audience and recognizes it’s very diverse by now (perhaps always has been). He is closely followed by physicians, nutritionists, nurses and lay persons with string interests on science and aplied science (eg clinical practice). Such a great balance achieved on all counts I can contemplate. Kudos.

    Given the importance of vit D in proper bone healing, in our periodontology/implantology office (Belgium), we have been testing routinely for vit D levels prior to oral implant surgery, this for approximately the past 3-4 yrs. It is surprising to see how many people, who overall are in good health, come out with low or suboptimal vit D levels.

      That is amazing information and you said this is in Belgium? My levels were single digit of 4 yes 4 I'm in America and was prescribed 50,000 I U's of D and then 1000 daily of D3. At the next year's check up I was a 12. Again, we repeated the 50, 000 prescribed pill and back on the D3.
      What most people don't know is you can't absorb vitamin D through a window. I think that should be told to the patient as the Doctor is writing out the prescription.
      Thanks for posting. Your information confirms what several people have said about their own bone fragility 🇺🇸

So that you won't be a nurse like the one who told me my daughter wasn't at risk for having osteoporosis because she had such high amounts of calcium floating around in her blood, as she pulled up the blood test results to check herself. Boy was she wrong, come to find out my daughter had a hairline fracture of her left hip. And there were adequate amounts of calcium showing up in her blood test.

    Hello John, I’m really enjoying your videos, although I’m coming to this a bit late. This is very interesting. I live in Germany and am having a TLIF spinal fusion surgery next week to correct L4/L5 spondylolisthesis. My GP here has advised me to take D3 and K2 together in order to aid the bone fusion process, which will take place over the next year after the bone graft is inserted between my L4 and L5 vertebrae. This makes a lot of sense in light of the evidence you presented (very clearly and understandably) here. Thank you very much! By the way, you need to heat the sauerkraut for a few minutes for it to taste good 😉.

    I have now watched this video 3 times and have found it very helpful. Thank you Dr. John and with your new videos out very recently looking at Vitamin D3 and K2 I have decided to now take K2 for the first time as I know I am not getting any from my diet. I started taking Vitamin D3 in February this year at a very low dose for the very first time as my levels where only very slightly above sufficient until the sun came. In Autumn I started taking a bit more still what most people would say is still a low dose and will be increasing my levels of D3 even more although they will not be anywhere near as high as what other people are taking but still quite modest.

    Hello Dr. Campbell, first of, thank you for all the information you share in such a pleasant manner with the world. I really appreciate the way you approach this all. About the origin of how much K2 is recommended, I think I've read something a couple of years ago about it being based off how much Natto (fermented soybean) is eaten by the Japanese. Natto is said to be (one of?) the richest source of vitamin K2 found in food. Maybe you could try and look into that? And now I think about, it, perhaps there's even a possible link between the low to none cases Japan has since some time now..? Japan has a large fish consumption as well, I'm thinking vitamine d3, Omega 3. Quite a stretch perhaps and yet it could play a role.

    I’ve been taking K2 in my D3 supplement, based on, I think, the FLCCC recommendations last year. It’s important, though, if extra D3 is needed, don’t double up on the K2, just take extra D3 only.

      @Broken Butterfly The answer is "maybe". Bacteria in your gut can convert some K1 to K2. It's not clear how much K1 your gut bacteria converts to K2 or whether your gut bacteria is capable of converting enough K1 to K2 to prevent K2 inadequacy.

    My Vitamin D levels were really low at 43. So I’ve increased to 6000 IUs a day but then saw K2 should be taken at higher levels of D3. So today I started K2 at 120 mcg a day. I then watched this video and realized K2 was mainly found in meat, cheese and eggs. I eat none of these being Vegan. So I must need K2 as a result of this life choice. I also have liver disease (non alcoholic) and sounds like a compromised liver would benefit from K2. SO, with no real advise from Drs on supplements these videos are both fascinating and necessary. Big pharma make no money on selling vitamins - seems they’d rather you become sick and need one med after another added to your daily regime. Sad. You have to do your own research and do what you feel suits your own body. As here it was made clear 2 people can take the same levels of supplements yet obtain different results. However, thank you ! I feel confident in my decision today to add K2

    Your drawing of the heart and clot was very informative! I've suffered a pulmonary embolism and so when I went for my Vaccine I was being offered the AZ much to my concern as at the time blood clot risk was the major concern. However upon the risk assessment questionnaire I was asked if my clot was ischaemial and I was at a loss and made me worry further but was told if it was I'd have been aware it was! Anyway, I'm fine now. Not totally as I had episodes of raised heart beat and I was worried it could have been linked to the double dose AZ vaccine.. Upon checking it out with all tests and blood results came back negative for everything including thyroid function, I've been told it's probably due to anxiety after going through a PE which I'm told is a serious event. It didn't feel massively serious, 6 mnth on anticoagulant and a lot of rest due to fatigue; I didn't feel I was being taken seriously with my concerns about my sudden bouts of increased heart rate... Perhaps it has highlighted a pre existing irregular heart rate condition, of which is not being considered as an outcome of vaccination. So I just have to believe that I already had this condition and for some reason it has now decided to rear its head. I am being monitored sort of, I'll be called back to see cardiologist two years as of end of my immediate care - so next year. It's always on my mind but for now I'm trying to not let it concern me as they've put it down to anxiety, although I'm not anxious in feeling, just in body... What is one to do but wait 😑

    You know what's amazing... I remember pharmacists and certain small pharmacy stores were saying exactly this. D, C, Zink, K2. Yet the governments were silent about this. Imagine reducing hospitalization rate by 80%. They are either very smart, or very stupid, and both options should be worrying.

    Just an update, in 2009 I was living in MA - USA, my levels of D3 were nonexistent and every winter I got the flu and whooping cough, my doctor put me on D3 and I have not been sick since. I also added K and Zinc to my daily consumption. I live in a retirement community now in Florida and many folks around me did get COVID and many were hospitalized and some died, I did not get sick and I was exposed to many who did get this flu. I recommend D3, K and zinc to all my friends and some are now doing this as well.

    Thank you so much for your helpful video. A few months ago, I was experiencing extreme tiredness and joint pain and requested a vitamin D test. My levels came back at 12mmol/L! I was prescribed weekly 40,000 IU of Vit D to be taken over 10 weeks. I have nearly finished my course now and feeling a bit better and brighter in mood but sadly, I still have some joint pains and still at times really tired. (Doctors are investigating me for Arthritis) I will continue to take 4000IU daily from now on. I am definitely going to start K2 as well, I have a feeling I am deficient in that one as well. I didn’t even know about K2 and the link with osteoporosis before this video so thank you 🙏

    I read exactly the same thing a few years ago. You are correct, most medical organisations are still calling it collestarol
    fering up the arteries, but it is actually calcium.
    And vitamin K2 is the only thing used by the body as a transporter of that calcium that the body naturally stores in the arteries for later use in the bones, eyes and teeth ect.
    If we aren't getting Vitamin K2 because artificial sweeteners have killed of a vast amount of our intestinal bacteria and sources from cows milk, cheese, butter etc are low because they are now mainly fed on grain instead of grass, then our bones, eyes teeth and other organs and tissues that require calcium will degenerate and cease to function as they should, while the arteries continue to narrow to dangerous levels as there is no transporter to move that stored calcium through the blood to the body.
    I can't remember the exact name of the process as the body convert's the vit K2 into some sort of amino acid or enzime ??
    You will have to excuse any spelling as I'm dyslexic.

    This man is such a blessing in our lives. I’m not a GP but I always wanted to study evidence based research on vitamins and Covid etc etc. Dr John Campbell is like my teacher. I wish he were in real life. He makes everything about pharmacology sound exciting explaining words and this making learning exciting. Thank you for just being yiur gorgeous quirky intelligent self. I’m addicted to your channel. You deserve an award. By the way I had a most terrible reaction to the Pfizer 2 vaccine and still bedbound with seizures abd at times blindness as my eyes burn and they won’t open. It’s been 4 months of agony and visits to and from hospital. The medicos can’t accept that it was the vaccine that did this to me but I know that all my symptoms began within 25 mins of having the vaccine and then my seizures began 2 weeks after I had the shakes hit and cold shivering shaking and all sorts of other issues. I’m a mental health social worker and I’m curious to know more and I pray that one day I’ll be able to direct as many people to Dr Campbell’s utube site. It’s just fabulous and I feel heard and understood. You have helped keep me sane all night when I can’t sleep and I’m alone. Thank you so much. By the way has anyone else had a reaction to the Pfizer vaccine as my head feels really hurt on fire like an electrical pain and my eyes burn. Also I have severe gastrointestinal issues and my
    Wound are not healing I arrived back from the hospital just in time after I had 4 days of bleeding. Even my gums were so inflamed that when I went to the dentist my dentist told me I was at severe risk of having a stroke or heart attack I cough up mucus as well and am frothy in the mouth. I am trying to keep as calm as possible but if anyone else has had any issues will you email me with any suggestions. I have children and I’m not getting any better.
    I hope we can support each other or exchange ideas. Dr Campbell if you have ANY IDEAS I would be most appreciative although I know how busy you must be. Thanks again Dr Campbell. Your keeping me alive. Love the research. I’m totally addicted.

    Thank you very much for your video. It is clear and seems comprehensive, and I appreciate the citations to studies. I years ago I started taking a chewable calcium summplement which also contains Vit. D and Vit. K, because I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. The chew is tasty and easier to remember than gulping a large pill. Last year I learned from some other videos that the Vit. K that was in those chews didn't seem at all related to the purpose of my taking the calcium supplements, because, on close reading of the label, it is K1. So I started taking a K2 supplement of 100 mcg per day. I told my HMO doctor, and he did not say anything in favor or against. It is a large HMO and I'm sure they tell their doctors what to do. Anyway, I think I am okay and will keep on taking both supplements. Thanks again!

    I am fairly confident in supplementing with Vitamin D in terms of safety. I know much less about Vitamin K. This one I might be concerned about overtaking. The topic of blood clotting makes me a little nervous. However, so far I am reading that it is K1 that is involved in clotting where K2 is not. Trying to find more info to confirm this. So far, sounding like K2 is involved in calcification and not clotting.

    I'm a 77 yr old male located in the USA. 2 years ago, I was told two of my heart's arteries were 85% clogged and the third was 65% plugged and they were evenly plugged all the way down to the capillaries. The cardiologist installed 3 stents, one in two of the arteries main branch and one in a branch artery of the 85% plugged arteries. I have been feeling angina pains with not much activity. I started taking Vitamin K2 about a month ago. Within 2 weeks I felt much less angina pains with activity. So, I'm a believer in Vitamin K2 for heart patients. The brand I take is Doctor's Best. Whether it's the best brand to take or not I do not know but I'm convinced it is helping my plugged arteries. Thank you for your video.

      My latest cardiology visit included an EKG that showed an irregular heartbeat. I've since read that it may be a side effect of the K2. So I reduced my K2 to one 45mcg supplement daily with no noticeable changes in my angina. I also stopped taking Losartan for blood pressure since that also may have that same side effect and I started taking magnesium. My irregular heart beat seems to be better. My blood lab test also revealed low red blood cell count along with low hemiglobin, so I started a Vitamin B12 with iron supplement that appears to be helping with my energy level. I'm taking Triam/Hctz more often to control BP.

    I have found that much of the natural health helps I have used, are trial and error and I have many half filled bottles that I either can't take or they didn't work for me, and I hate to throw them away, so every now and then I will try various ones again.

      also, living wool (washed only cold or hand-warm at most) preserves d3 and so also, people who care for fury animals also profit in this way from stroking their animals. I heard, d3 is produced from sheep wool, from the natural lanolin, the fat or grease in their "hair".

    My mum broke the neck of femur at hip at 80. After this she was on vit d and k2 (no calcium). She had falls after this but never broke any more bones. Also if you have a shower after sun exposure it doesn’t get absorbed. It is harder to get from the sun than you think (at higher levels).

  • Pietro Cantuccini
    Pietro Cantuccini Year ago +1

    K2 activates
    • Osteocalcin proteins which incorporate calcium into bone
    • Matrix GLA protein which binds excess calcium to prevent deposit in soft tissues such as arteries
    That 6000mcg bottle contains probably an MK-4 version which is much less effective than an MK-7 one
    (60µg MK7 have better impact than 500µg MK4). I gather the shown recommendation amount of 90-120µg refers to MK-7.
    It is also the smarter choice as MK4 stays only for about 4 hours in the body, whereas MK7 works for roughly 72 hours.
    [300µg is said to be the upper processing limit. So, any more seems a waste of money.]

      How about hormone (Thyroid) supplements? Any you’ve heard, also for premenopausal? I’m on a medication for thyroid and it truly concerns me being on it for so long. It’s like poison in small doses.
      Thyroid (Armour) 0.5GR (30mg) 1x daily.

      @Mikaella Hi, I am in Australia, I buy all the Frank Caruso range, you can even speak or write to their Naturopath . have a look on Duckduckgo, I don't use Google. Good luck, if not, have a look at iherb.. not sure how much synthetics ones they use.

      Which kind of D3 K2 do you take. Where do you get your natural supplements?

    I responded negatively to one of your videos just to see if you actually read them. You did and I am pleased. You keep pressing on, mate. By the way, I am a graduate of Kings College, Cambridge in the early 80's. Well done here. I recommend getting your K1 & 2 through food intake. Being very careful to understand blood thinners vs K.

    Thank You for informative and critical push for increased focus on D and K2.

    Thank you, Dr Campbell! I appreciate the way you always base conclusions on the evidence, are ready to change your opinion with new evidence, and are not afraid to say "we just don't know yet".

    100% most valuable information. I am 69 years old and have been experiencing all symptoms due to lack of vit. D and k2. My holistic doctor prescribed me with both, plus magnesium. For awhile I was feeling good, until I ran out of k2. A couple of weeks later and I am experiencing again achy bones, dental issues again, and last night experienced pain in chest, and was wondering why. I watched your video now 4 times during last night , and you gave me all the answers to these health issues. I wish I knew all this when both my parents were sick because of same issues.
    Fantastic information. Thank you dr. Campbell , God bless you for doing this work for benefit of others.
