Most holistic and integrative physicians prefer to look at natural factors that may influence the organic growth and integrity of bone architecture. A recent review provided by the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University mentions a number of dietary components that are vital for supporting bone mineral density at all stages of life. Specifically, they encourage optimal intakes of B Vitamins, calcium, carotenoids (plant-based antioxidants), magnesium, potassium and Vitamins C, D, K. Ensuring adequate protein and reducing the consumption of cola beverages are also mentioned.

According to some nutritionists, Vitamin K needs to play a more prominent role in the management of skeletal health. This is particularly important because this micronutrient is often deficient in populations that need it the most. An evaluation from earlier this year determined that older men and women were likely to have deficient levels of plasma MK-7, a biologically active form of Vitamin K. This is a pressing cause for concern because the two most common forms of K, phylloquinone (K1) and meanquinones (K2), are known to enhance bone formation, protect against bone resorption and support collagen cross-links that further strengthen the skeletal system.

In December 2009, scientists from the Keio University School of Medicine in Japan examined the current state of evidence regarding Vitamin K interventions in relation to fracture risk. Seven randomized controlled studies were included in the evaluation. The researchers reported that despite �only a modest increase in bone density, high-dose Vitamin K supplementation improved indices of bone strength in the femoral neck and reduced the incidence of clinical fractures�. The most recent data available in the medical literature tends to support this observation.
