Our bones are a mix of living cells and minerals like calcium. We rely on their strength to support us, providing the living frame to hold our bodies up. So it's incredibly important to take good care of your bones, especially after age thirty, when both men and women begin to lose bone density. Loss of bone density can lead to osteoporosis, which can be painful and restrict your ability to move around.
Calcium is the supplement that we hear about most in relation to bone health, but it's not the only one you need to protect your skeleton. Magnesium, boron, and vitamin D are only a few of the other nutrients our bones need. Vitamin D is particularly crucial, since your body needs it in order to absorb calcium.
Supplementation of these nutrients is key for protecting yourself from bone loss. Even if you think you're too healthy or too young to worry about your bones, it's never too early to start taking care of yourself to prevent health problems in the future. Think of it as an investment. You're investing in your future health and happiness.
The key to bone health isn't taking high levels of limestone (calcium carbonate) or even a more tolerable form like calcium citrate. The key is in eating high quality unprocessed food sources of calcium, like green leafy vegetables, sesame seeds and other nuts. Then supplementing your diet using the best bioavailable forms of minerals for supplements, like calcium glycinate, di-calcium malate, and MCHC, in combination with all other minerals and vitamins critical for repairing and building new bone. After calcium and magnesium, vitamin D3 is likely the most important with the most clinical support, but studies have also shown the importance of other minerals and vitamins too.
