Ask Dr. MaoQ: I have osteoporosis. What are the best natural treatments to strengthen my bones?

Research shows that adding various trace minerals, such as zinc, copper, and manganese, to the calcium and vitamin D seems to further improvement. Essential fatty acids, such as fish oil and GLA from evening primrose oil, may also enhance the effect of calcium. Additionally, it is a good idea to take a multi-mineral supplement because calcium competes with the absorption of other minerals.
