A high salt intake has been linked to Osteoporosis.

For Osteoporosis, you need the following intake…

 

Calcium – 500 to 600 mg twice daily in divided doses.

 

Magnesium – 250 to 300 mg twice daily in divided doses.

 

Vitamin D – 800 to 1,200 IU daily if you have osteoporosis and 400 IU daily if you are supplementing vitamin D for prevention.

 

Vitamin K1 is the form of vitamin K found in plants that is important for bone formation.  Take 2 to 10 mg daily and up to 500 mcg daily for preventative purposes.

 

Ipriflavone – 600 mg with food.  Have your lymphocyte, a type of white blood cell_ levels monitored by your doctor when using this supplement.

 

Essential fatty acids – 4 grams of fish oil daily, along with 3,000 mg of evening primrose oil.

 

Strontium – 680 mg daily.
