Bone Health Supplements

Poor bone health can cause diseases such as rickets and osteoporosis, also known as brittle bone disease. This can increase risks for breaking bones and so in order to prevent this there are some important nutrients available in supplements such as calcium, vitamin D3, Vitamin K, Boron and Silica which are essential to build strong and healthy bones.

Calcium is one of the most important minerals for building strong bones. Whilst there are many calcium supplements, not all types of calcium supplements are absorbed efficiently especially calcium salts such as calcium carbonate.

Vitamin D is often found in calcium supplements; calcium and vitamin D work together to build healthy bones since vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium from the gut into the bloodstream. Vitamin D is not naturally present in foods but exposing your skin to sunlight does allow the body to manufacture vitamin D3 but sometimes this is simply n ot possible due to the seasons.

Vitamin K works to help calcium bind to the bone framework. Care must be taken when taking vitamin K with blood thinning medications such as warfarin.

Foods to strengthen bones include good calcium sources such as milk, cheese and other dairy products, tofu, soya drinks with added calcium, green leafy vegetables, nuts and fish.
