New supplement best for preventing bone loss, says study

A new nutritional supplement is better than calcium and vitamin D for protecting the bones in older women, a new study has concluded

A new nutritional supplement is better than calcium and vitamin D for protecting the bones in older women, a new study has concluded.

KoACT is a calcium-collagen chelate-which means the two compounds are bound together-that prevents bone loss, and so reduces the risk of osteoporosis and fractures.

It's been tested for a year on 39 older women, who were given either KoACT or calcium and vitamin D supplements. Women in the KoACT group had a 1.23 per cent loss in bone mineral density at the end of the 12 months trial, while those taking the supplements experienced a 3.75 per cent loss.

Researchers from Florida State University, who carried out the study, say the results are "crucial" for women, and especially for those who have reached the early stages of menopause when bone loss can be rapid.
