Calcium is the most plentiful mineral in the body. Most people know it is essential in the formation of bones and teeth and important in preventing osteoporosis.3,4 At the same time, most people don't consume adequate amounts of dietary calcium.3 The Daily Recommended Intake (DRI) of calcium for adults aged 19 - 50 is 1,000 mg. For adults over age 50, the recommendation is 1,200 mg daily.
Vitamin D is needed to utilize calcium and phosphorus in the body, to promote bone growth, and to maintain bone density. With deficiency, there is a decrease in production of the protein that helps enable calcium absorption, which can lead to weakened bones. Research continues to indicate that the RDA, which was just increased, has been too low for maximum benefit.
Magnesium is needed for formation of bone, protein and fatty acids.6,7,8 The DRI for adult women is 320 mg and 420 mg for men, but we recommend 400-600 mg per day for most adults.
Phosphorus is the second most plentiful mineral in the body and works with calcium to form new bone and maintain strong bones and teeth. Phosphorus is also used to process and balance other nutrients in the body, including vitamin D, magnesium, and zinc.8
Vitamin K-1 has a direct effect on bone health. It helps to increase vertebral bone mass and support skeletal health and maintain bone density.9
Boron stimulates bone regeneration.10 Deficiency results in impaired bone health.11
