    There are many variations of K2. MK4 and MK7 are the major ones and they don't do the same things in the body. One of those is very high in slimy natto. Pastured animal products have decent but far lesser amounts of the other. I supplement.

    Fermented foods, fermented fats.
    Old soft raw cheeses are great. Also high meat/fat. Raw grassfed butter.
    Also charcuterie like salami and high quality ham from Spain/Italy that has been aged for a long time...

  4. Thank you both for replies. I have a lot of Serrano ham, Gouda and only use grassfed butter, I used to eat Natto but that really does have a taste of its own :D

    But again, while there is a great deal of MK7 in Natto, there is not very much MK4 in pastured and fermented animal-based products, just more MK4 than in other sources of it. And MK4 and MK7 do somewhat different things. Our great grandparents were probably fine, but hard to glean enough K2 from the current food supply.

    3.5 oz natto
    1 raw duck or chicken egg
    1 tbsp thickest darkest grade maple syrup
    1 tbsp Eden red label (American not Japanese) organic soy sauce

    I've eaten this almost every day for half a year now and it never gets old. Come summertime I might really splurge and put half cup of white sushi rice with it.
