Vitamins (Vitamin D)

The role of vitamin D in the prevention of osteoporosis. (Ann Med. 2005) " osteoporosis can be largely prevented by optimizing physical activity, and the vitamin D-related factors of environment, and nutrition. The role of vitamin D supplementation is to provide humans with the nutrient in an amount closer to our species' biological norm. This amount of vitamin D results in the optimal function of many aspects of health, including balance and muscle strength that lessen the risk of fracture beyond what is possible via the quality and quantity of bone itself."


Supplements - Nutrition (Calcium)

Underutilization of calcium and vitamin D by older adults in a large general internal medicine practice. (Am J Ther. 2005) "The underutilization of calcium and vitamin D supplements in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis is common among high-risk elders. Calcium and vitamin D were greatly underutilized among older patients in an internal medicine clinic. Inadequate replacement doses were common, and men were particularly susceptible to undertreatment."
