My name is Laura, currently 53 ( diagnosed Parkinson’s at 45). My major symptoms are gait and balance issues, along with difficulty of movement. Recently I have learned that vitamin K2 may help Parkinson’s, I started taking MK4, since 98% of vitamin k in the brain are MK4. My experience is mixed.
On the positive side, my right food is relaxed, this is the first time ever since I got Parkinson’s. I now can sleep with my relaxing food, what a bless! Also I noticed I can raise my arm a little, sometimes even to reach upper cabinet. It also cured my long time hip pain. I used to get steroids shot every few months, the pain was gone after few weeks of taking K2.
On the negative side, I noticed my legs seem to be weaker, and more dragging.......
I started at 100 mcg a day at beginning, then increased to 200 mcg, 300 mcg, started noticing these side effects plus sign of anxiety, so I reduced it to 60 mcg a day now, with 1000 IU of vitamin D. This vitamin K2 is definitely doing something on my Parkinson’s symptoms, the first few days of taking it, I was doing so great, even thought I was going to recover. Is anyone taking K2 here? I remember I’ve see someone here mentioned it helping with gait and balance.
Thanks for your reply! Laura
