Calcium and bone health. We have all heard about the growing epidemic of Osteoporosis in the U.S. What is it the number one supplement everybody reaches for? It’s calcium. However, an alarming new study shows this may not be the best idea.
Osteoporosis tends to afflict women more than men. In fact, over 75% of all people with osteoporosis are women. According to the Institute of Natural Healing, this may not be the best idea. Women who take calcium supplements are seven times more likely to develop dementia. The risk is even higher if there is history of a stroke. Even a temporary stroke, or transient ischemic attack (TIA) can increase this risk.
The Nutritional Approach to Supporting Healthy Bone
So what is the real solution to osteoporosis? Over 60% of calcium (Ca) is carried by protein. By the time we reach age 40 we lose our ability to digest protein. In fact, it declines as much as 70%. First, increase your dietary protein. Second, make sure you get enough (Ca) from your diet. Try to eat calcium rich leafy green vegetables. Great sources include spinach, kale and other leafy greens.
