When taking any supplement, absorption is critical. Pills are difficult for the body to digest. The PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) is considered to be a medical Bible. Look at page 1542, it points out a bar graph that nutrients from a pill absorb only 10-20% in our body while the liquid has up to 98% absorbability! In fact, for every $100 you spend in pills, $80-$90 of that gets thrown away!

The Importance of Bone Density

The Importance of Bone Density

Building strong bones, especially before the age of 30, can be the best defense against developing osteoporosis, and a healthy lifestyle can be critically important for keeping bones strong. 

Osteoporosis is largely preventable for most people.  Prevention of this disease is very important becuase, while there are treatments for osteoporosis, there is currently no cure.  There are four steps to prevent osteoporosis.  They are

  • A balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D
  • Weight-bearing exercise
  • A healthy lifestyle with no smiking or excessive alcohol use
  • And bone density testing an medications when appropriate

No one step alone can prevent osteoporosis but all four may.

Calcium is needed for the heart, muscles and nerves to function properly and for blood to clot.  Inadequate calcium is thought to contribute to the development of osteoporosis.  National nutrition surveys have shown that many women and young girls consume less than half the amount of calcium recommended to grow and maintain healthy bones.

Depending on your age, an appropriate calcium intake falls between 1,000 and 1,300 mg a day.  If you have difficulty getting enough calcium form the foods you eat, a calcium supplement is a great source of calcium recommended to make up the difference.

Vitamin D is needed for the body to absorb calcium.  Without enough vitamin D, you will be unable to absorb calcium from the foods you eat, and your body will have to take calcium from your bones.  Vitamin D comes from two sources: through the skin following direct exposure to sunlight and from the diet.  Experts recommend a daily intake between 400 and 800 IU per day, which also can be obtained from fortified dairy products, egg yolks, saltwater fish and liver.

Exercise is also important to good bone health.  If you exercise regularly in childhood and adolescence, you are more likely to reach your peak bone density that those who are inactive.  The best exercise for your bones in weight-bearing exercise such as walking, dancing, jogging, stair-climbing, raquet sports and hiking.  If you have been sedentary most of your adult life, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before beginning any exercise program.
