Truly Healthy Bones, More Than Just Calcium and Vitamin D
If you're like most Americans, you’ve probably been told by your doctor, friends, nutritionist, and the media that if you want to prevent osteoporosis and fractures, just drink lots of milk and take calcium supplements. Yet most dairy (and soymilk) products, and nearly ALL calcium supplements can actually contribute to worsening your bone health and increasing fractures. That’s right! Several reliable long-term studies have shown that taking most calcium supplements, or drinking two or more glasses of milk daily, can actually aggravate and worsen osteoporosis, fractures and joint pain.
The reality is that everyone can enjoy healthy, strong bones that last a lifetime. Yet many of us don’t for a variety of reasons, including digestive problems, endocrine imbalances, and a diet lacking in the right foods. Even if you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia, you can turn it around and restore good bone health by making the right choices, starting now.
