Get Strong Bones with Vitamin D

While your body needs calcium to keep bones strong and healthy, you will need Vitamin D to absorb calcium in the body. Strong and healthy bones can be achieved also achieved by taking in Vitamin D. Vitamin D is really not a vitamin. Eating foods or taking supplements can alternative for vitamins since our body cannot make them. Vitamin D is a hormone made by the body when it is exposed to the sunlight.

It has been discovered that Vitamin D is associated with strong bones many years ago by doctors who found out that Vitamin D can made by sunlight or taking cod liver oil, which help in preventing rickets in children. Recent research is now showing that vitamin D may be important in preventing and treating a number of serious long term health problems.

A person who receives insufficient Vitamin D and Calcium may suffer bone conditions, such as rickets (children) and osteoporosis (adults), which makes the bones become soft, thin and brittle. More than 40 million people have either osteoporosis or low bone mass. This causes an increase in the person’s risk of bone fracture, including hip, as he/she becomes older. Statistics says that osteoporotic bone fractures are suffered by one in three women and one in five men aged 50 and over. If you are a person who is suffering from these medical conditions, there are factors which you need to consider before deciding to undergo hip replacement surgery, orthopedic doctors suggest.

Vitamin D is included in many multivitamins. It can be found alone as softgel capsules, tablets, and liquid in over-the-counter strengths from 50 – 1,000 IU. Higher doses are also available, but it is best to ask your doctor what the safest, most effective dose for you would be.
