The Positive Relationship Between Calcium and Vitamin D

As we age, we realize the importance of certain nutrients and vitamins over others. Certainly, women when it comes to aging and our bones.

More research continues to prove this point as it relates to calcium and vitamin D. And there is an even healthier relationship between these to important nutrients.

Older adults need a lot of calcium for stronger bones, vitamin D for better calcium absorption, and omega-3 fatty acids for combating joint pain, says registered dietitian nutritionist Keri Gans.

Following a diet rich in magnesium, potassium and vitamins A, B6 and B12 can also help older adults achieve long and healthy lives.
