Supplements & Bone Health - Vitamins


We have covered several of the core nutrients that you want to get from food. Now, let’s look at what nutrients you may consider supplementing. In this conversation, Dr. Doug Lucas discusses the topic of supplements, focusing on foundational vitamins and minerals for bone health. He emphasizes the importance of choosing quality supplements and avoiding big box stores or online retailers. Dr. Lucas also highlights the significance of gut health in nutrient absorption.

Supplements can be a helpful tool for stopping bone loss and building bone. Supplements provide high doses of nutrients that may be difficult to get through food and you can find them in high-quality formulations that are designed for optimal absorption.

The conversation covers fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K), B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12), and vitamin C.


  • Choose high-quality supplements from trusted sources to ensure efficacy and safety.
  • Address gut health issues before focusing on supplement intake for optimal absorption.
  • Fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) play a crucial role in bone health.
  • B vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12, are essential for reducing homocysteine levels and supporting bone health.
  • Vitamin C is important for collagen synthesis and calcium absorption.


We have created a supplement protocol to provide you with access to the same high quality supplements that we recommend to our Optimal Bone Health Membership clients.
