BONE HEALTH & OSTEOPOROSIS
Bone health is influenced by many different factors, including: diet, ph
balance, calcium intake, heredity, low thyroid, and others.
Osteoporosis doesn't need to be inevitable; clinical evidence shows that
bone loss can be slowed or even halted with the right diet, supplements,
exercise & treatment...
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 they form attachment points for muscles.
In fact, it is the arrangement of bones and the points of muscle attachment
that determine the type of movement that can be done by our bodies.
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 simply to maintain the bone density we
What Makes Up Bone?
The majority of bone is made up of something called the matrix (no relation
to Neo), which has both organic and inorganic parts. Although we all picture
bone as a block of mineral, the vast majority of bone is actually an organic
(living) framework. This framework is made up of a number of different
proteins (including Type I collagen) as well as sugar chains called
glycosaminoglycans. The inorganic part of bone is made up of calcium and
phosphate, which is simply deposited on the organic framework to add
strength. Crawling along this matrix are two cell types called osteoblasts
and osteoclasts. Osteoblasts build new bone, while osteoclasts break down
old or damaged bone. In fact, approximately 20% of any adult's bones are
being remodelled at any point in time, and up to 7% of our bone mass is
broken down and replaced every week. This helps to keep our bones strong and
new. In addition to their outer structure, the long bones of the body also
contain an inner core of bone marrow that produces blood and immune cells.

What is calcium and what does it do?
Calcium is an important mineral for the optimal functioning of many body
systems, and a building block in our bones and teeth. Calcium also protects
the body from heavy metal toxicity by competing for absorption against lead.
Calcium ions are involved, at the cellular level, with the folding structure
of the RNA and DNA molecules and the activation of enzymes for the
metabolism of fats. Our nerves also use calcium for the proper transmission
of impulses, and our muscles use calcium to contract and relax.
In addition, calcium lowers cholesterol, by inhibiting plaque formation, and
lowers blood pressure, by ensuring the proper functioning of the arterial
muscles. This mineral is commonly recommended by natural health care
practitioners for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, PMS,
pregnancy, cancer prevention, nervous disorders, muscle cramps and insomnia.
Deficiency of calcium can occur because of insufficient dietary intake or
because of increased loss caused by negative conditions within the body. The
standard North American diet is high in protein, fat, sugar and phosphorus
from the consumption of meats, refined grains, junk foods, salty foods,
alcohol, coffee and soft drinks. Not only is this diet low in calcium, it
also leads to a disruption of the acid/base balance with a shift towards
acidity, and the body is forced to buffer using calcium. The calcium drawn
out of the bones to be used as a buffer in the bloodstream is then lost in
the urine. This can also be caused by some medications, or when the body is
in a state of inflammation, like with inflammatory conditions such as
rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. If calcium is deficient, toxic lead is
absorbed by the body and deposited in the teeth and bones. The muscles in
the body use calcium for contraction and deficiency can result in painful
muscle spasms. Similarly, the heart uses calcium in its contractions, so
deficiency can lead to arrhythmias. Deficiency of calcium also causes bone
and joint diseases such as osteomalacia, osteoporosis and osteo-arthritis.
It also leads to poor growth and poor bone density in children (Rickets).
Calcium carbonate is not the best calcium source because it must be taken
with food for absorption, and its basic nature may interfere with proper
digestion, which requires acidity from stomach acid. Additionally, up to 40%
of people over the age of sixty have chronic stomach inflammation that
prevents the breakdown of calcium carbonate.
