DAIRY PLUS VITAMIN D PROTECTS BONES

Posted: 04.18.2018
Consuming certain dairy products with vitamin D may protect aging bones. A new study found consumption of milk, yogurt and cheese, when combined with vitamin D supplementation, was associated with higher bone density in the spine and less bone loss in the hip. Vitamin D increases absorption of calcium, which builds bone and reduces bone loss. These results were only seen when there was adequate vitamin D intake. An estimated 10 million Americans have osteoporosis, which increases the risk of fractures, loss of mobility, decreased independence and quality of life, and even death.
