A guide to help you prevent and fight low bone density.

How important do you think it is to maintain a good bone density? 
What should we know about our bone density? How can we maintain a 
good bone density?

Do you know the answers to these questions? I used to be. My 
confusion motivated me to find the answers. I hope what I found 
will help clarify the issue of bone density for you too.

These are the facts:

~ A woman's bone density increases until she is between age
25 and 35. At that point, her bone density stalls and then begins 
to decrease.

~ Women who are not able to increase their bone density by the 
time they are young adults are at a higher risk of developing 
bone problems.

~ Osteoporosis can be caused by insufficient calcium, vitamin D, 
estrogen, moderate weight-bearing exercise, or excessive body 

What are the consequences of decreased bone density?

This decrease in bone density can have severe consequences.

Stress fractures become more common in young women. These are 
caused by repeated application of stress on bones that are unable 
to cope with the demands placed on them.

In case of people suffering from osteoporosis, these fractures 
can occur due to commonplace activities like jogging.

Osteoporosis is often not obvious in women until after nearly 
forty years. But when it becomes obvious, the results are severe. 
It can cause several changes in the skeletal structure and can 
also severely hamper the woman's movements.

I was in my thirties when I decided to study more about 
osteoporosis. This is what I found.

Osteoporosis is usually not totally reversible; therefore, 
prevention is the best cure. Calcium and vitamin D supplements 
are important and can contribute significantly to preventing the 
development of osteoarthritis.

Once the disease has struck, treatment is aggressive.

There are several ways to prevent low bone density:

~ Exercise regularly, even if you do not exercise strenuously. A 
regular walk is a good choice. Whatever physical activity you 
undertake, you should repeat it for a minimum of 30 minutes three 
to six times a week.

~ Take calcium and vitamin D. The National Institutes of Health 
recommends that individuals between 9 and 18 consume 1300 mg of 
calcium daily. Adults over 19 should consume 1000 mg of calcium.

Avoid smoking and drinking, and consume a minimum of caffeine. 
All of these substances reduce the amount of calcium present in 
our body.

The importance of diet cannot be overemphasized. It is important 
to have a diet that helps increase bone density. Dairy products 
and green leafy vegetables in particular offer significant 
protection against osteoporosis.

Calcium is an important ally in the fight against osteoporosis. 
Look for opportunities to consume calcium. Juices such as orange 
juice are an excellent source of calcium.

And milk is rich in both calcium and vitamin D.  Calcium levels 
can also be increased with supplements such as Osteozyne™. 
Osteozyne™ aims to maximize bone health and combats bone loss at 
any age.  Osteozyne™ can be found at
