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

Although all are essential to developing strong bones, the two nutrients of particular concern for growing infants and children are calcium and vitamin D.
