Our expert says:
you should have your vitamin D blood levels checked. Alot of South Africans are vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D helps to increase osteoclasts (to make more bone). If these levels are below 50 then use a D3 1000iu supplement daily. Also use a calcium that is as close to food as possible (in a food form). Avoid acidic foods, fizzy drinks and too much sugar as these leaches calcium from the bones.
