"I began taking Vitamin K complex daily within the last 6 mos because it was recommended for bone and cardiovascular support. I had looked around for a good price and, as always, Vitacost's price is a great deal! The capsule is small and easy to swallow."

Review 2 for Vitacost Vitamin K Complex with K1 & K2 -- 400 mcg - 90 Softgels
"I take this supplement along with my cal/mag/D3 to maintain bone health. I have taken K2 alone, but I like it that this formula also includes K1. The 200mg of K2 contained in the complex is the quantity I most see recommended, so I feel confident that the supplement is performing as required. This is a GREAT value in a tiny gelcap that you won't even realize you've swallowed! Highly recommend!"
"I've been using Vitamin K for quite a while, but was excited to find this complex that covers the most important aspects of Vit K supplementation. I have not been able to find any other brand that can complete with NSI's quality and price."
