Can high vitamin d3 supplementation and vitamin k2 cause hypotension?
Kdon't feel physically weak or faint.
I am aware of studies that suggest vitamin D supplementation may have a beneficial effect on blood pressure. However there is no published report to the best of my knowledge in world medical literature that indicates the corollary ie high vitamin D causing hypotension.
The latest guidelines recommend targeting blood levels of 30 to 50, so one should take whatever amount is necessary to keep 25 hydroxy vitamin D blood levels in the goal range.
Regardless of the amount of vitamin D supplementation taken daily, as long as blood levels are in the desirable range, one does not expect any adverse effect on blood pressure
Acute toxicity can occur and may result in a variety of symptoms such as confusion, excessive thirst and urination, lack of appetite, vomiting, and muscle weakness. In the long term it may cause kidney stones, bone loss and pain.
Second follow up
I am not aware of any published evidence that suggest K2 aids in assimilation of vitamin D3.
25 hydroxy vitamin D blood levels are not known to fluctuate significantly on a day to day basis. They are a good measure of the body's vitamin D stores
Take whatever amount your body needs, at whatever frequency you desire (daily, weekly, monthly options available) to keep levels in the target range mentioned above
