Considerations for Fighting Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

Last week I started my discussion about the epidemic of OSTEOPENIA and OSTEOPOROSIS in our country. There are several steps to consider if you have concerns about your bones.

First, make sure you have enough stomach acid. And there are several ways to improve that. All the calciums we consume need stomach acid to become absorbable. Secondly, when taking a calcium supplement, make sure it is not Calcium Carbonate, but in stead a form that is well tolerated. The third consideration is that we need a high quality Magnesium, as well as adequate amounts of Vitamin D-3 to further absorb the calcium, all the way to our bones. The fourth thing to be aware of is that recent published research on the importance and benefits of Vitamin K-2 shows tremendous insights and advances not just in fighting OSTEOPOROSIS, but also in reducing ARTERIOSCLOROSIS, which is important for heart health.

If OSTEOPENIA and OSTEOPOROSIS are on your radar, then please come in to get more helpful information; and perhaps pick- up some bone-enhancing dietary supplements …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
