Can you get all the nutrients you need for bone health from food?
The answer is maybe. It depends on how much of certain nutrients you’re getting in your food and how well your body absorbs them. If you’re deficient in any of the nutrients required for bone health, you may need to take a supplement. Consult your health care provider for advice on nutrition.
