Vitamins D & K for kids’ bones

Doctors cite “disturbing growth” in low-energy bone fracture—such as falling from a standing height or less—in healthy children and adolescents.

Healthy kids may still be low in vitamins D and K, leading to poor bone development and early osteoporosis. Recent studies show a majority of healthy pre-pubertal and pubertal children have excess circulating levels of inactive bone protein (osteocalcin)—instead of being in bone—signaling low levels of vitamins D and K, and especially vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) which helps maintain calcium balance and a healthy skeletal system.
