It's critically important to GET K2 throughout life, and particularly important to get K2 when you take Vitamin D, as K2 is a 'cofactor' of vitamin D that can exacerbate health issues if you are insufficient while taking Vitamin D.

So, if you are sure that you are GETTING sufficient vitamin K2 in your diet, then there is no need to TAKE Vitamin K2. Personally, I take 1 mg of K2 in the form of meniquinone every day, because I don't eat aged cheese or natto most days, and I would love to have strong bones and healthy coronary arteries for my entire life.
