While it is true to a certain extent that taking calcium and vitamin D would be beneficial for maintaining strong healthy bones, this is not enough for everyone and it is no guarantee of that you will be protected from osteoporosis. You should speak with your GP and a nutritionist to find out the best way for you to protect your bones with proper diet.
