Abstract:
Background: Numerous studies have focused on the contribution of calcium and vitamin D to bone growth and mass accumulation, but not many focused on other nutrients such as vitamin for promoting bone growth and mineralization. Objectives: 1) To determine whether dietary intakes of Vitamin C positively supports bone growth and increases the bone mineral density in both boys and girls. 2) To determine the effectiveness of fruits and vegetables for improving bone mineral density in adolescents. Search Methods: The search strategies included a search on PubMed.gov for studies from year 2000 to present that focused on the correlation between the vitamin C or fruits and vegetable intakes and the bone development.
