Calcium and osteoporosis

Q: Does Osteo-K interact with any other dietary supplements?
No. However, if you are taking different dietary supplements that all contain minerals, there is always a risk of taking too many minerals at the same time. This can cause a watery diarrhea, technically called osmotic diarrhea. Simply taking Osteo-K away from other dietary supplements can correct this situation.

Q: Does Osteo-K replace my calcium supplement?
Yes. Because Osteo-K combines all essential nutrients into one formula it's the only dietary supplement you need for bone health. You don't  need to buy extra calcium unless advised to do so by your healthcare provider.

Q: Do I need to take extra vitamin D is I'm taking Osteo-K?
Only if your doctor has prescribed higher amounts of vitamin D than what is in Osteo-K. Each serving (six capsules) of Osteo-K contains 2,000 units of vitamin D3. For most people this is sufficient and means that you won't have to buy extra vitamin D.
