Bone Health

An adult human has 206 bones, which are constantly being renewed and remodelled.  Bones perform several important roles in the body.  Bones form a framework that supports the body and protects soft organs.  They are an essential part of movement because muscles attach here and the arrangement of bones determines the type of movement that can be done. Bones are important storehouses of minerals, including the major buffer, calcium.  They also contain an inner core of marrow that produces blood and immune cells.

Most people do not think about bone health until they are in their later years.  This is a mistake because significant increases in bone density can only be made in childhood or early adulthood (up to age 30).  For the remainder of our lives the goal is to maintain our bones.

Calcium

Calcium is an important mineral for the optimal functioning of many body systems.  Calcium is a major mineral found in the bones and teeth.  Deficiency of calcium causes bone and joint diseases such as osteomalacia, osteoporosis and osteo-arthritis.  It also leads to poor growth and poor bone density in children. Calcium also protects the body from heavy metal toxicity because if calcium is deficient lead is absorbed by the body and deposited in the teeth and bones. Supplying optimum levels of active and absorbable calcium is crucial for maintaining bone mass.

Synergistic Nutrients

Synergistic nutrients can make a substantial difference in the uptake of calcium by the bones.  For a variety of different reasons calcium can be difficult to absorb - one of them being that as a mineral, calcium has a negative charge that can repel it from the cells of the body. It’s very important, then, for people concerned about bone health that nutrients be taken along with calcium.  Some of them include: magnesium (in a 2:1 ratio), zinc, silica, manganese, copper, boron, and potassium.  While there are others, these are the ones that can make the biggest difference for bioavailability.  Some of these, like magnesium and zinc, can increase absorption in the gut, while others, like the boron and silica increase the actual uptake of calcium by the bones and its subsequent integration as new bone mass.


Help Maintain Healthy Bones by:
  • Taking a high quality Calcium Supplement.
  • Eating plenty of vegetables (for their high mineral content).
  • Avoiding coffee and other caffeinated beverages (they leach calcium from the bones).
  • Exercising regularly to maintain bone mass.
  • Tracking your pH and maintaining an alkaline state.
  • Balance hormones with essential fatty acids and herbs.

Osteoporosis

Bone loss is a major concern for both women and men, but  more so for women (due to hormonal factors) who generally lose more bone mass than men.  Your bones need to be given adequate levels of the nutrients that they need to repair themselves.  When you are deficient (or due to other aggravating factors) loss of bone mass results.

Clinically, osteoporosis is a loss of bone density that surpasses the amount that normally occurs due to aging.  The spine and hips are the most vulnerable areas.  Women are most commonly affected especially after menopause when they lose the protective effect of estrogen.  As the bones become brittle they fracture and collapse more easily.  The degeneration results in pain and decreased mobility.

Osteoporosis is caused by a number of factors including a sedentary lifestyle, lack of minerals, hormonal changes, hypothyroidism, smoking, a high protein diet, alcohol intake, caffeine intake and stress.  Long term use of the following medications decreases bone density - antacids, blood thinners, diuretics, anti-seizure medication, ulcer medication and all corticosteroids.
