You Can Prevent Osteoporosis
Skeletal loss is not inevitable. A healthy diet can keep it away, new scans can detect it and drugs that build bone can even reverse it.
Look into the future. Do you see brittle bones and a dowager's hump? The need to take careful little steps lest you fall and break a hip? Does each extra birthday candle loom as a sign that osteoporosis is that much closer?
Then you are looking through a glass too darkly. This ominous view of aging, which sees the deteriorated bones of osteoporosis as inevitable, is fast being replaced by the realization that women can prevent and even reverse bone loss. Thanks to better diagnostic tools, you don't have to wait for a fracture to learn your osteo-status. And with drugs that don't merely hold the line on bone loss but actually let bones rebuild themselves, you don't have to join the 8 million American women, including 25 percent of those over 65, who are afflicted with the disease. What you do have to do is take some simple steps to prevent osteoporosis.
Begin with adequate calcium intake. The bones store about 99 percent of the calcium in the body, but calcium is also used by most other organs. If there isn't enough calcium in the diet to satisfy those organs, the blood will rob the bones to get it. To avoid this, experts recommend a minimum daily intake of 1,200 mg of calcium for everyone, from the teenage years on. That's approximately four cups of yogurt or milk, or six ounces of cheese, or a whole lot more of the best nondairy sources: 3* cans of sardines, three cups of dry-roasted soybeans or seven cups of collard greens. Since most Americans eat only half that much calcium, supplements that also include 400 to 800 IU, or international units, of vitamin D are a good bet. (Vitamin D helps the intestines absorb calcium and encourages bones to grow.)
After eating all this good food, you might want to move a little, too. Regular weight-bearing exercise, jogging, jumping rope, walking briskly or lifting weights can boost bone density 3 to 5 percent a year in those who previously didn't exercise. Women who do exercise are already benefiting from stronger bones; to maintain your strong skeleton, all you need to do is take 30-minute walks or jogs three to five times a week. Just don't exercise so much that you stop menstruating, which happens to some athletes. (This also occurs frequently in anorexics.) Losing your period means your body has virtually stopped producing estrogen, which leads to bone loss similar to that brought on by menopause.

Majestic Earth Osteo fx - 32 oz.- #13209
Calcium is one of the most important nutrients your body needs. Unfortunately, many people believe that taking calcium enriched anti-acid tablets or other related products will give them all the calcium they need. That is far from the truth. You see, in order for calcium to be efficiently absorbed by your body, it needs other mineral co-factors. Majestic Earth Osteo fx was developed with this in mind. It is a highly bio-available liquid concentrate because it contains the necessary vitamins and minerals, the co-factors, necessary to help you absorb the calcium. You get more than 100% of your Daily Value (RDA) from just one ounce of Majestic Earth OsteoFx . You will love the pleasant vanilla taste and it goes great with a NaturesWhey shake.
