What can we do to Avoid Osteoporosis?

Those ads endorsing milk as the solution to tough bones are almost unavoidable. However, does intake of milk actually

convert into sturdy bones?

The milk supportive faction considers that good amount of calcium consumption, ideally 3 glasses of milk every day will

help in staying away from osteoporosis. Every year, osteoporosis causes several fractures, with several broken hips.

What is exactly Calcium, and from where do we Get It?

Calcium is a mineral that the body requires for several functions, consisting of building as well as maintaining bones and

teeth, the transmission of nerve impulses, blood clotting and the regulation of the heartbeat. 99 % of the calcium in the

body is stored in the bones and teeth. The remaining 1 % is to be found in the blood and other tissues.

The body gets the calcium it needs in 2 ways. One is by intake of foods or supplements that have calcium. Good sources

consist of dairy products, which have the highest concentration each serving of highly absorbable calcium, plus dark

leafy greens. Calcium supplements often have vitamin D; taking this combination seems to be more helpful for bone

health than taking calcium only.

What Is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is the weakening of bones caused by an

unevenness between bone building as well as destruction.

People usually lose bone as they grow old, in spite of consuming

the suggested consumption required to maintain ideal bone


Achieving satisfactory calcium intake and maximizing bone

stores during the time when bone is fast deposited, up to the age

of thirty, provides a significant base for the future. However, it will

not stop bone loss later in life. The loss of bone with aging is the

consequence of a number of factors, comprising genetic factors,

no activity physically, and lower levels of circulating hormones

(testosterone in men as well as estrogen in women).

Postmenopausal women account for 80 % of all cases of

osteoporosis as estrogen production drops fast at menopause.

Of course, men are at risk of developing osteoporosis as well, however they tend to do so five to ten years later than

women, as testosterone levels do not drop abruptly the way estrogen does in ladies. It is expected that osteoporosis will

cause half of all women more than age 50 to suffer a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra, as bone density of women

get weaker with the growing age.

Though, healthy diet plan for a women is a must containing good proportion of calcium for strong bones from a very

young age, but still ladies don’t pay heed to it and neglect their health. In such a case, Calcium supplement powders like

Women’s Horlicks provide the best nutrition for women and should be taken religiously every day.
