Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. because calcium phosphate is an integral part of bones. but with calcium intake vitamin D is also necessary, because increased calcium will have no effect if vit D is unavailable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YES!. osteoperosis will occur if one does not receive the proper amount of Vit D and calcium in their diet. People constantly shed and gain bone layers. (newest in the center oldest on the outside just like the rings of a huge oak tree etc.) when you get older you shed more and gain less (30s40s for females 40s50s males) but can happen sooner if you dont receive the proper amount of vit d and calcium younger during puberty or teenage years.
