Osteoporosis is a disease related to bone metabolism disorder. It is characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of the micro architecture, whose consequence is greater bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures. The purpose of this review is to summarize literature review regarding dietary calcium and vitamin d intake and exercise interventions for the treatment of osteoporosis in isolation. Recommendations as adequate amounts of total calcium, vitamin D and protein intake, regular exercise to improve strength and balance to reduce the risk of falls and consequent fractures, are known to be effective strategies for the prevention of osteoporosis, but also an important complement in the treatment.
