20 Key Bone Nutrients | Folic Acid

by Dr. Susan E. Brown, PhD    Depending on how we count them, there are at least 20 bone‐building nutrients that are  essential for optimal bone health — “essential” in that our bodies cannot manufacture them on  their own, so we must get them from our food and drink. Let’s take a quick look at them, one  by one, so you can get a better idea of their role in bone health and how much you should be  getting.     Remember, none of these nutrients do their work in isolation — you need some of each and  every one, so they can all work together to keep your bones standing strong all your life long.  Taking a top‐grade multivitamin–mineral complex and essential fatty acids will ensure that your  cells have adequate levels of these nutrients ready at hand from minute to minute, day after  day, to prevent bone loss leading to osteoporosis, other degenerative diseases, and accelerated  aging.    (Click through on individual nutrients to learn more…)    TABLE OF 20 ESSENTIAL BONE‐BUILDING NUTRIENTS  Nutrient  Adult RDA or AI  Common  therapeutic range  for bone health  (daily intake)  800–1200 mg  800–1200 mg  Dietary considerations concerning adequacy  of average daily intake  Your  intake  Key minerals  Calcium  (Ca)  Phosphorus  (P)  1000–1300 mg  1250 mg 9–18 yrs    700 mg adults  Typical diet is inadequate, averaging 500– 850 mg.1  Inadequate intake is rare except in elderly  and malnourished. Excess intake common  with use of processed foods and soft drinks  — ~ 1500 mg/day in men and ~1025 mg/day  in women.       US DHHS. 2004. Bone health and osteoporosis: A report of the Surgeon General. Chapter 1: A public health  approach to promote bone health. URL: http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/library/bonehealth/chapter_1.html  (accessed 05.28.2008).    Wright, J., et al. 2003. Dietary intakes of ten key nutrients for public health, United States: 1999–2000. Adv. Data,  (334), 1–4. URL (PDF): http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/ad/ad334.pdf (accessed 05.28.2008).    Morgan, K., et al. 1985. Magnesium and calcium dietary intakes of the US population. J. Am. Coll. Nutr., 4 (2),  195–206. URL (abstract): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4019942 (accessed 05.28.2008). …
