Bone & Teeth Health: Calcium and vitamin D are included to help maintain strong, healthy bones and teeth.* The human skeleton consists of 206 bones that provide a framework for the body to help maintain shape, protect vital organs and provide a place for muscles to attach. Bones also function as a site for mineral storage and blood cell formation.
