Bone health in the over 50's - some more evidence

There is already some doubt about how effective routine use of calcium supplements is for post menopausal women trying to maintain good bone density (apart, perhaps, from those people with poor intake or absorption of calcium). Another common supplement taken to help bone density is vitamin D3 - this has a host of other benefits as well as its known effect on bone metabolism.

But some recent research in Florida found that an easily available supplement known as a calcium-collagen chelate outperformed both calcium and Vitamin D3.

Worth bearing in mind if you want to minimise bone loss as you age through your 60's and 70's?
