Calcium and Vitamin D are factors in the maintenance of bones and teeth. Perhaps no mineral has gained greater recognition and acceptance than that of calcium. We are constantly admonished to, "take calcium", in order to have strong bones now, and the acquired bone density needed for our latter years to avoid bone fractures due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis concerns are well founded in North America, where approximately 1.3 million women suffer fractures each year as a result of osteoporosis.

- While calcium is the central mineral in bone mineralization or calcification, the quality of the calcium crystals formed is profoundly dependent on magnesium. When too little magnesium is available, the calcium crystals are weaker permitting fractures to occur, even when consistent efforts have been made to consume the recommended daily calcium supplements
- When magnesium is supplied with calcium on at least a 2:1 ratio, the bones undergo a stronger calcification
- Vitamin D is important to facilitate calcium absorption from the intestinal tract. A consistent deficiency of vitamin D leads to a condition of inadequate calcification referred to as osteomalacia or "soft bones", revealing just how important vitamin D is
