Vitamin D

Does vitamin D help with osteoporosis?

A Answers (2)

  • Without sufficient vitamin D, inadequate calcium is absorbed, and this may weaken bones and increase the risk of fracture. Vitamin D supplementation has been shown to slow bone loss and reduce fracture, particularly when taken with calcium.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

    Adequate amounts of vitamin D are needed daily in order for your body to absorb calcium. A chronic deficiency of calcium is a risk factor for osteoporosis, or brittle bones. Nonfat and low fat milk are fabulous sources of both vitamin D and calcium. Your diet should include 3 servings of lean dairy daily to help you meet your calcium needs.
