Enquiry about suplements for healing broken bones
On Saturday I fell off my moterbike and managed to fracture the top of my Tibia. Are there any natural suplements on the market to aid in the healing process of the bone? Thanks Mark

Dear Mark
If you are young and healthy, your bones will heal quickly in any case. (As long as you don't get on the bike again!).
Ensure an adequate calcium intake (+/- 1000mg a day- roughly 3-4 glasses of milk). You can also ask your local health shop for their advice on supplements.
Hope your bones heal quickly !
