In brief: 3 key factors needed

The 3 keys to health bones are calcium at 1500-1800 mgs.
Per day, 600 i.U. Of vitamin d, and regular weight bearing exercises. Calcium is the basic building block of bone, vitamin d helps with calcium absorption and metabolism, and weight bearing exercises help deposit more bone to the areas that feel the stress of weight bearing.
