TIP from NIC
Do you take calcium and vitamin D supplements to help ensure your bone health? It is best to split your daily calcium-vitamin D supplements in half - say, take half in the morning and half in the evening - to maximize calcium absorption by bone. A daily dose of 1,200 mg of calcium and 800 to 1,000 IU of vitamin D are recommended for women over 50 and for men over age 70.
