A comparison of changes in bone density following the same bone-health plan, but with a different bone-health supplement.
The US Surgeon General's Report on Bone Health suggests America's bone-health is in jeopardy and issued a "call to action" to develop bone-health plans that:

improve nutrition,
increase health literacy and,
increase physical activity.

The purpose of this study was to use a comparative effective research model to compare 6-month changes in bone mineral density (BMD)in two study groups. Both followed the same bone health plan that contained the three components listed above with the same plant-source calcium supplement, but enhanced with different levels of calcium, vitamin D3, vitamin K and magnesium.
