Overview Fractures and vitamin D

Bone Fractures can be decreased by:

  • Build bone by having enough vitamin D (>1,000 IU) when also having cofactors such as Magnesium and Vitamin K-2
    >4,000 IU for a wide variety of reasons
  • Reduce falls by having enough vitamin D to maintain youthful nerve and muscle response time - again with cofactors
