Throw this supplement away before it’s too late!

Throw this supplement away before it’s too late….

Many women are taking calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis and or bones fractures.calcium 1

The so called authorities  say you should take 1000 to 1200 mg of calcium a day but people average around 700 to 900 according to the Institute of Medicine.

Newly released information gleaned by scientists put a cloud on the whole calcium supplement craze.

When scientists went back and combed over 59 studies they changed their tune. There was no reduction in fracture risk with calcium supplementation. There was a small change in bone density but no change in fracture risk according to the article in the New England Journal of Medicine[1]

If that wasn’t enough proof another 58 studies when examined showed no clinically significant  reductions in fracture risk with supplementation.[2]

All the data suggest that supplementation is not only ineffective but carries certain risks.

Calcium supplements increased risk for cardiovascular disease as reported in the New England Journal of Medicine[3] and may cause kidney stones, dyspepsia, constipation, and malabsorption of medication (e.g., thyroid hormone) as reported in the British Medical Journal[4].

I know many of you thought that supplementation was the answer. After millions of pills swallowed and dollars spent there was only a small gain in bone density, no fracture risk reduction and possible damaging side effects.

If not calcium supplements, what?

One of the best ways to increase bone density is to increase activity or add weight bearing exercise to you health program. It might be hard to believe that simple gardening increased bone density the most. It is also essential that you get adequate vitamin D to utilize calcium.  As you age you really have to supplement.  We just don’t produce enough vitamin D from sunlight alone.

So stop wasting your money on calcium supplements. Increase your vitamin D, exercise level and eat more calcium rich foods.  Dare I recommend milk, cheese and butter? Yes!  Also high in calcium are vegetables, fish and almonds.

Stop throwing your money away and jeopardizing you health. Follow my recommendations above and you’ll be healthier and save some money besides.
