Calcium Alone is not Enough for Healthy Bones
by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) Practically everyone knows that calcium is vital for healthy bones. What many people are unaware of is that calcium alone is not nearly enough to insure that bones remain healthy. There are in fact a number of other vital minerals and nutrients that are essential for maintaining healthy bones, preventing bone loss and even building bone mass. There are also herbs and other items that can help build and maintain healthy bones.
Bones are not made from calcium alone. They're an amalgam that includes various minerals such as zinc, boron and copper. Foremost of the additional minerals needed for health bones is magnesium, which is actually considered by health experts to be more important for bone health than calcium.
is important for many, many areas of
health and it is an essential
co-factor for calcium. Unless you
take magnesium with calcium, you
body is unable to properly absorb
and utilize calcium. That means that
even if you get plenty of calcium,
if you do not also get enough
magnesium the calcium will be of
limited benefit. Alarmingly, various
studies and estimates have
determined that anywhere from 70 to
95% of us are deficient in
Strontium provides the double benefit of inhibiting bone resorption while simultaneously stimulating bone growth. No other natural substance or drug is known to provide this dual effect. Human studies within the past decade have reported extraordinary results for strontium. In one large multi-phase study it was found that post-menopausal women added 8.1% new bone growth over a three year period whereas they would normally have lost about 1% of their bone mass each year. Studies have also shown that strontium is important for enhancing tooth enamel as well as bones.
Vitamin D3 has been proven in many
studies to be extremely valuable for
maximum bone health. One should aim
for a bare minimum of at least 600
international units of vitamin D3
per day (three times the Recommended
Dietary Allowance), and for
therapeutic use aim for even more -
up to 4000 international units.
Caution: Do not take bone drugs for
osteoporosis. Evidence has shown
that they produce abnormal bone
growth, make bones more brittle and
can have serious and even life
threatening side effects! See:
