Essential Nutrients


Essential Nutrients for Building Strong Bones

Many nutrients play a role in bone health. Some nutrients are needed in such small amounts that most people are not deficient in them as they get enough of each nutrient in their diets. These include phosphorous, potassium, vitamin A, zinc, manganese, copper and vitamin B12.

Doctors are aware that vitamin D, calcium and exercise are essential for maintenance of bone health. However, they are less likely to be aware that dietary insufficiencies of magnesium and vitamin K are also widely prevalent, and that each of these essential nutrients is an important contributor to bone health.

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 helps to direct calcium to the bones, away from the arteries. This helps to prevent calcium deposition in the arteries.

Vitamin C

Contributes to collagen formation to support cartilage and bone function and contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Unfortunately, our modern-day diet or western diet, which is often high in convenience and highly processed foods, prevents us from getting enough of these key nutrients.

Consumers likely don't meet the dietary recommended intakes for vitamins D3 and K2, either as a result of the poor bioavailability of these molecules in food, insufficient consumption, or because of absorption issues.

Combined supplementation of vitamin K2 and vitamin D3, appears to be the best fit for a healthy bone structure.
