From 43 studies with a total of more than 7,300 participants, it can be seen that calcium supplementation significantly improves 

 bone density in the femoral neck and the entire body in people under the age of 35.

mineral content of the femoral neck bones, lumbar spine and bones in general also increased slightly when calcium was taken.

This was especially noticeable in people between the ages of 20 and 35. This is the age at which bone mass reaches its peak over the course of a lifetime.

Dietary calcium and calcium supplementation increased bone density. However, the mineral content of the femoral neck and lumbar spine was higher only when calcium was taken.

The research group, which published the results in the journal eLife, concluded that calcium intake can improve both bone density and bone mineral content.

Yupeng Liu of Wenzhou Medical University in China added: “Taking calcium supplements with the goal of increasing bone mass is common in old age.

However, studies show that this is unlikely to lead to a clinically meaningful reduction in fractures. However, taking it
