Do High Doses of Calcium Reduce Your Risk of Fractures?

Dr. Frank Pettrone practices in our Arlington and Tysons Corner offices.

Women should take at least 750 mg. of Calcium per day to prevent or diminish osteoporosis and decrease their chances of a bone fracture. I would also emphasize that women should take 1500 mg of Vitamin D per day.

Beyond that there is no proof either for or against taking more than that amount of calcium. In addition to supplements, regular exercise such as walking is important to keep your bones healthy.

 

Read more about Calcium intake in the article: “Risk of Fractures in Later Life Not Reduced By High Daily Calcium Intake,” published this week on the Medical News Today website.
