Getting calcium supplements or improving calcium nutrient consumption through meals may not improve bone health, according to two new research.
Researchers analyzed randomized controlled tests and observational research that looked at whether extra calcium nutrient improved navicular bone nutrient density or helped prevent bone injuries in women and men over 50 years of age. The first research found that improving calcium nutrient from nutritional sources or by using products only produces small increases in navicular bone nutrient density…which the authors had written are unlikely to lead to a clinically meaningful reduction in chance of bone fracture. In the second research, nutritional calcium nutrient consumption was not associated with a reduced chance of bone fracture and there was no proof that upping calcium nutrient through meals prevents bone injuries.
An associated with article indicates, “The weight of proof against such mass medication of senior citizens is now compelling” and suggests it’s time to reconsider current recommendations.
