(NaturalHealth365) Bone loss is widely considered to be just another part of the aging process. In fact, many conventionally-trained physicians believe that it is perfectly “understandable” for a person to experience a higher risk of osteoporosis later in life.
In addition, Western medicine is quite accepting of the fractures that result from these conditions. In fact, researchers estimate that 50% of U.S. women and 20% of men will have an osteoporotic fracture after 49 years of age.
Vitamin D regulates the expression of hundreds of genes and is integral to biological functions that affect every bodily system.
