More to bone health than just calcium

There’s more to bone health than just calcium. We’ll help you find the right nutrients to help you achieve lasting bone health. Vitamin D is necessary for absorbing calcium from the digestive tract into the bloodstream. And vitamin K2 helps maintain bone density by promoting calcium transport into the bone matrix. Magnesium, zinc, silicon and other bone-healthy minerals are also needed for strong bones. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can also help keep bones healthy.
