My small bunch (3.5 ounces) of spinach was 479 mcg all by itself (532%). My whole-food multivitamin supplement also chips in with 63.8 mcg (71%). Looking back at my 3-month average, I see that I routinely eat about 520 mcg of K a day (578%).
I know you can take too much vitamin K if you're on dialysis or taking certain kinds of drugs, but can healthy people overdose on greens? (This video seems to say yes: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/overdosing-on-greens/. But most sources suggest that no, you just can't.)
I realize there may be bioavailability issues with plant-based sources of Vitamin K, so maybe I'm saved from gruesome death of vegetable-induced green coma, but is there some guideline out there to tell me when I've gone overboard? And if nothing else, am I wasting money on buying so much spinach - money that could go into my raw organic almond butter fund?
