NYtimes...a great source of fake news...anyway they re right on calcium and partially wrong on vit D, vitamin k2 mk4 or mk7 is what can fix calcium to bones (other minerals are also more important than calcium) and lower fractures, there are some triasl with results on this.vitamin alone is not useful because it only increases calcium absorption from foods it is the cmbo with vit k2 to make it work

that s k1 and it is no use for calcium metabolism management.the best type is k2 mk4 45mg daily but there is only one brand in japan which is approved a s a drug for this.i only found aor brand but it is only 15mg per cap.it also works on liver cancer prevention and few samll studies showed even an effect reducing them
vit k2 mk7 is easier to find but studies were done on mk4, i use super k from life extension which has 200mcg of mk7 per cap
i use it (vit k2 mk7 200-400mcg) as a prevention of bone loss due to tdf together with 10.000iu of vit d3
