The Top 12 Things You’re Missing In Your Osteoporosis / Calcium Supplement


The Top 12 Things You’re Missing In Your Osteoporosis / Calcium Supplement. Osteoporosis remains a major health issue for more than 44 million Americans. Despite the fact that Americans consume more dairy products and calcium than any other population in the world, we still have one of the highest rates of this debilitating disease. One in two women and one in four men over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in his or her lifetime. And while osteoporosis is often thought of as a disease that affects the elderly, it can strike at any age.  78% of women over age 20 get less than their 100% of the RDA for calcium

Calcium doesn’t work alone to build and maintain strong bones. Think of calcium as the bricks in the bone-building process. Bricklayers know that a house is only as strong as the mortar that holds it together. And the nutritional mortar for building and maintaining strong bones includes vitamins D and K, magnesium, boron, zinc, copper and manganese.
