    The calcium and Vitamin D are important, although the form of calcium can be a problem for some (carbonate). Some of that can be avoided by also taking Vitamin K2 (not K1) and I seem to remember hearing if you have to take calcium carbonate you could take it with orange juice as that helps with absorption.

    Alendronic Acid is a medication designed to stop some of the bone cells from functioning - the osteoclasts, which normally remove old bone while osteoblasts make new bone. This is a pretty serious thing to be doing to one's skeleton so does involve a lot of caution and research and maybe looking for more natural ways to improve bone density, depending, of course, on your personal condition.
