Calcium is a primary mineral for building the strong structure of bones and teeth, while adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. Recent animal studies show that magnesium supplementation supports bone formation while increasing its dynamic strength, but also balances normal bone resorption processes. Additionally, magnesium is also involved in maintaining proper muscle function, including the heart muscle. Vitamin C further assists in the maintenance of healthy bone structure and function as it plays a critical role in the synthesis of collagen, the building material of all connective tissues. Boron is also an important trace mineral found in high concentrations in the bone.
