Supplements to Prevent Osteoporosis

According to WebMD, one in two women and one in four men over the age of 50 will develop osteoporosis-related fractures in their lifetime, a disease characterized as porous bones.

The consequences of osteoporosis can be serious, ranging from humped backs, brittle teeth and easily shattered limbs. It’s more important than ever to practice early intervention to avoid such complications down the road.

Your chances of developing the disease greatly increase with age. Here’s a list of substances to try and start building your future’s clean bill of health – just be sure to consult your primary physician before beginning any regimen!

Current research suggests the best method for fending off porous bones that develop with old age is through receiving a steady dose of calcium and vitamin D. Bodies lacking sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D are forced to draw these substances from the bone, making them more vulnerable over time.

Dieticians suggest one of the greatest sources of calcium makes itself available through an unlikely source – leafy greens. If you’re not onboard the vegetable train yet, it’s time to jump on!

Looking at animals with large bones such as cows and elephants, researchers determined their diet of leafy plants played an instrumental role in maintaining their bone structure.

To treat your body to equally important vitamin D, you needn’t look much further than the sky. The sun can actually provide you with a daily dose of this overlooked vitamin.

Some research suggests 20 minutes outside on a beautiful day can make a difference – just don’t forget the sunblock! Vitamin D supplements, available at most drug stores, can provide an excellent alternative for homebodies.
