Beans for Bones How much calcium do you need? An interview with naturopathic Michael Murray sheds light on the subject and answers a question we hear from many customers. According to Dr. Murray, his practical recommendation on calcium supplementation is there is no reason to go over 1000 mg a day. Most studies also show that calcium alone does not benefit bones, nor reduce the risk for osteoporosis or bone loss. Adding vitamin D appears to reduce the risk of hip fractures by 29%. However, other nutrients have a role in bone integrity. Dr. Murray cites vitamin K2 in the menaquinone form, boron, B vitamins, bioflavonoids and magnesium.
