Dr. Lisa Pomranky Says . . .
Calcium and vitamin D are vital for bone health. The recommended daily calcium intake for adults over 50 is 1200-1500mg per day and 1000mg per day for people under 50. This should be divided into three doses of 500-600mg or less. Most people get 500mg from their diets and would likely only need 500-1000mg of supplementation. Vitamin D at 1000-2000IU daily is recommended as a supplement because calcium is not absorbed properly without adequate vitamin D levels in the body.
