Senior health care: osteoporosis

Senior health care experts recommend calcium supplements to help prevent osteoporosis, but there's nothing like the 'real-thing' foods. Calcium obtained from food sources is best, as these foods are also rich in vitamin D that helps in the absorption of calcium. Don't overload on supplements, as our body can only absorb so-much at a time.
