Supplements worth trying for osteoporosis
- Vitamin D on its own, or in a multi-vitamin helps calcium absorption. Research says that oral vitamin D sprays outperform tablets, delivering straight to the bloodstream.
- Magnesium* supplements help vitamin D and calcium absorption.
- Consider a formulation that combines calcium and magnesium for bones and teeth.
- Red clover as a fermented red clover extract, could be a natural replacement to oestrogen, according to a 2017 Danish study, to treat osteoporosis. See our health post Osteoporosis: Could red clover be a replacement to oestrogen treatment?
*Note: magnesium supplements may cause diarrhoea - if you have kidney or heart issues check with your doctor first. For most of us a healthy, balanced diet is the best route for getting enough magnesium.
