Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disease characterised by low bone mass, making bones fragile and likely to fracture. It is also referred to as a “silent’ disease because symptoms and pain do not appear until a fracture has occurred.
While calcium is critical for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth, emerging science shows that we need more than just calcium to optimise bone health. There are benefits to a combination of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, which in fact go beyond just bone health.
Why calcium, magnesium and vitamin D?
Research shows that adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthy diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.
Magnesium helps build strong bones and stimulates calcium uptake.
Calcium and magnesium necessary for strong bones and teeth also play a role in cardiovascular health, nerve and muscle function and many enzyme reactions.
Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the body and for maintaining adequate calcium and phosphate in the blood to enable normal bone mineralisation and growth.

Vitamin D teams up with calcium for stronger bones. Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the body and for maintaining adequate calcium and phosphate concentrations in the blood to enable normal bone mineralisation and growth. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D prevents rickets in children, osteomalacia in adults, and together with calcium, osteoporosis in older adults.
Other health risks associated with vitamin D deficiency. In addition to weaker bones, vitamin D malnutrition may be associated with an increased susceptibility to several chronic diseases. While ongoing research points to the importance of vitamin D, the facts remain that modern lifestyles and diets may lead to many people not getting enough.
