Yes: These are good choices. Some calcium & magnesium supps are much better absorbed than others- i like calcium citrate/hydroxyapatite & mag. Taurate/glycinate/citrate. Your dose of calcium & magnesium should be roughly equal. About 5000 units of d is good with 15 mg (not mcg) of vit k2. Consider strontium & boron. See www.Drdach.Com/wst_page6.Html.
