Vitamin D Reduces Stress Fractures
Adolescent girls, particularly those involved in sports, can be subject to potential stress fractures. An important new study found that “Vitamin D intake is associated with lower stress fracture risk among adolescent girls who engage in high levels of high-impact activity. Neither calcium intake nor dairy intake was prospectively associated with stress fracture risk.”
Reducing stress fractures is the latest in the ever-growing list of important health benefits provided by Vitamin D. Talk to your doctor of chiropractic to insure your children are getting the nutrition they need during growing years.
