What Are the Essential Nutrients for Strong Bones?
Many nutrients play a role in proper bone development.
- Calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium all are incorporated into and form the matrix of bone
- Zinc, copper, and manganese are trace minerals that serve as catalysts for metabolic reactions involved in building bone
- Vitamin D assists with the intestinal absorption of calcium; and vitamin K assists in the creation and proper function of a protein produced by bone-forming cells during bone matrix formation
