This article states that the recommended vitain K for women is 90 micrograms and for men is 120. It also states that as little as 25 micrograms is enough to effect the INR test. When looking at what you usually eat 25 micrograms is not much. So, those of us that have flutuating INR levels this is probably why. I love turnip greens, broccoli, cabbage and all the other foods high in vitamin K. I had as little as 1/4 cup fresh turnip greens and it lowered my INR levl down significantly. So, I guess each person is different but you must watch that vitamin k thing closely if you are having fluctuating INR levels.

Hello Lady golfer I just now saw your posting, and I have to say, I have the same problem. It seems like I look at greens and my INR goes low, lol.

I also had the exerience where I had just a little bit more greens than usual, and I mean, a very little amount, yet my INR had dropped like a rock.

I am wondering, are some people more sensitive to vitamin K than others?

Hi Angela. I guess it depends on a persons size, metabolism, other medications, etc. I am 140 lbs., have poor metabolism and take 4 other meds so that makes me somewhat vulnerable to the vitamin k. I don't have much tolerance to it. I have to avoid a lot of the green stuff. Glad to talk to you...

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#fbsd for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
