Vitamins for Healthy Bones
Calcium and Vitamin D are important for building strong bones when you are young and will help keep them strong as you get older. Ask our pharmacists about over-the-counter supplements for healthy bones!
Calcium not only helps to build bones and keep them healthy, it also helps blood to clot, helps our muscles work, and plays a key role in keeping our hearts beating! 99% of the calcium in our bodies is found in the bones and teeth! Our bodies do not produce calcium so we must supply it through our diet and supplements since we lose some daily through skin, nails, hair, and sweat!
Vitamin D helps to protect your bones by aiding the body's absorption of Calcium. If you are deficient in Vitamin D you are more likely to break bones as you get older! The best source of Vitamin D is sunlight, but you can boost your intake with an over-the-counter supplement too.
