HEALTH CLAIM: Regular, weight-bearing exercise and a healthy diet with adequate calcium, including supplementation, helps teen and young adults build and maintain bone mass and may reduce their risk of osteoporosis later in life. Daily calcium intake above 2,000 mg is not likely to provide additional benefit. Adequate calcium intake is also linked to reduced osteoporosis by reducing bone loss in older men and women.
Vitamin D is essential for intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption. Ergocalciferol is a vegetarian form of Vitamin D.
Magnesium works with calcium and other minerals in bone formation. It is involved in over 300 enzyme reactions, energy (ATP) metabolism, cardiac and smooth muscle contractions.
