You Can Still Get Osteoporosis, even when Taking Calcium
Long comment: Taking calcium supplements might not be enough to prevent osteoporosis. Other research studies have shown that Vitamin D is also needed to help absorb the Calcium. A recent three year study measured bone density of post menopausal women. Those who do not take any supplements end up with 3% loss in bone mass in the femur. Taking calcium and vitamin D supplements helps for the first year, but continues to be the same for the 2nd and 3rd year. Those who took calcium, vitamin D, and Vitamin K produced magnificent results-35% reduction of bone loss in the femur. This shows that it is important to combine Calcium with Vitamin D and K to maximize the results of preventing Osteoporosis.
