Important Information on Osteoporosis: Research shows that certain ethnic, age and other groups are at a higher risk for developing osteoporosis, including Caucasian and Asian teen and young adult women, menopausal women, older persons and those persons with a family history of fragile bones.
A balanced diet with enough calcium and regular exercise throughout life will help you to build and maintain healthy bones and may reduce your risk of developing osteoporosis.
Daily intake above 2,000mg elemental calcium is unlikely to provide added benefits.
