(3) Oral vitamin K supplementation (phytonadione and menaquinone-4) reduced bone loss. Menaquinone-4 had the strongest impact on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while supplementing with vitamin B alone did not demonstrate a significant impact on osteoporotic fracture incidence in patients with cerebrovascular disease, it did show a modest effect. (5) Patients with very high plasma homocysteine levels and vascular disease seemed to benefit more from vitamin B supplementation (folate, B6, and B12) to prevent osteoporotic fractures. Vitamin B effectively modifies HCy levels considered to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover.
