SUPPLEMENT CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D3 TO PREVENT FRACTURES – (05-23-05)By
Calcium and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) for prevention of fractures
Doesn’t this appear to fly in the face of what “they” tell us? If you read the above article, and if you realized that osteoporosis is a disease of lifestyle that will not be fixed with only one or two approaches, than the above article should come as no surprise.
Osteoporosis prevention/treatment needs to consist of a plant based diet (to achieve an alkaline balance rather than acid balance), supplements to include adequate vit D (see above!) and calcium (along with a good bone support formula to contain micronutrients such as molybdenum, strontium, magnesium…) and weight bearing exercise.
Regular readers will of course, not be surprised that I left out dairy. Which is ironic, because that would probably be the first thing most people would list as was to prevent osteoporosis. Remember that the literature is weak, and any studies showing a positive effect have usually not adjusted for Vit D intake, and that dairy, as we know it today, is fraught with many negative health consequences.
