Children suffering from juvenile idiopathic arthritis have lower than normal overall bone mass and are prone to developing osteoporosis in early adulthood.

It has now being advised that these children increase their supplemental intake of calcium and vitamin D to help protect them from the effects of this possible outcome.

IPM offers Osteo Complex for support of healthy bone growth and maintenance (great for adults too!)
