In brief: Vitamin d3 2,000 IU

The single best supplement to address these concerns in addition to a balanced diet would be vitamin d3 2, 000 iu daily.
Strong bones are needed to be able to build stong muscles and tendons. Vitamin d is frequently lacking. Calcium is usually sufficient in most individuals diet. Vitamin d deficiency is also linked with depression and loss of cognition.
