As we age there is a gradual decline in our bone strength, starting as early as our mid-thirties. Women who have gone through menopause see a greater rate of bone loss as oestrogen plays a major role in maintaining bone strength and this rapidly falls during menopause.
Why is bone health important? If the density of your bones decreases you are at risk of osteoporosis, which can cause you to easily fracture your bones.
To boost bone health, there are some key vitamins for strong healthy bones. These are calcium, vitamin D and vitamin K2 important bone health supplements that help support the growth, development and maintenance of strong healthy bones.
Calcium for Healthy Bones includes essential nutrients for maintaining your bone health. Calcium is vital for building and maintaining bone and giving the bones strength and structure. Vitamin D helps absorb calcium and helps decrease the risk of fractures when taken alongside calcium. In addition to those two crucial vitamins for bone health we have also included nutrients such as magnesium, manganese, boron, zinc and copper which all help make-up the bone matrix.
You may already know about vitamin D and calcium absorption, however vitamin K2 benefits bone health in a number of ways also. Vitamin K2 helps regulate calcium status and binds calcium to the bones, making it an important vitamin for bone mineralisation. When taken long-term it may decrease the age-related decline in bone strength. You can combine our Vitamin K2 one-a-day tablet with your calcium supplement to ensure all your bone health needs are covered.
Calcium + Vitamin D3 & K2 has been formulated to provide the essential bone building nutrients vital for bone formation, density and strength in one tablet.
If you are at risk of vitamin D deficiency, take a look at our Vitamin D3 1000IU, a natural form of vitamin D identical to that made by the body. In older people, vitamin D may help decrease the risk of falls and fractures.
