When you think of supplements for building bone, you usually think of calcium. From now on, you may want to think of vitamin E too.

Though not usually thought of for osteoporosis, this study of 378 elderly people found that having higher levels of vitamin E reduced the risk of low bone mineral density by 24%. High blood levels of vitamin E were also positively associated with higher femur bone density.

This new study suggests that vitamin E could help reduce the risk of fragility fractures in elderly people.
