Bone Health Calculator

A review of scientific literature has confirmed only a small handful of nutrients are proven bone health builders. These include calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, Strontium, and vitamin K. Using the carefully researched USDA nutrient database for these nutrients, you can assess your diet as a predictor of bone health with this tool.

How do you use it? Just estimate yesterday's food and click the "view summary" button to see if you are meeting the recommended amounts of these key bone health nutrients (minus strontium, since there is no good dietary data available). Use this unique calculator often to optimize your bone health, and that of your loved ones.
