New study found interesting fact that intake of calcium is not the best solution for preventing osteoporosis. This finding is based on the results from large study that followed participants for many years. During the research scientists conducted a series of tests to find what effect calcium might have on fracture rates.

Findings of this study showed that calcium didn’t prevent fractures even when combined with vitamin D. Another research showed that women in postmenopausal period who took combination of calcium with vitamin D during observation period were no less likely to break their hip than women who took placebo pill.

Some other findings reported that results from a meta – analysis of studies regarding calcium found no connection between high intake of calcium and lower hip fracture risk. Results of the research confirmed that certain levels of calcium intake is important for keeping bones strong but it appears that amounts above that level might not be so good.
