Healthy bones are very important as we age! For women, bone loss makes a huge jump during the first 10 years after menopause, which is when osteoporosis can start to develop. Research has shown that, for postmenopausal women, taking daily supplements of calcium, vitamin D3, and vitamin K1 or 2 can help enhance their bone mineral density. This combination of supplements was shown to reduce fractures and increase survival thus decreasing bone loss or the possibility of a fracture by as much as 20-25 percent.
Start a healthy diet, get some good sun exposure, and make sure to stay on top of these supplements in order to help your body age gracefully and away from osteoporosis.
