Did You Know: Calcium

Healthy Bones, Healthy Life!

Good sources of calcium are essential for strong bones that protect your heart, lungs, and brain from injury, and provide a warehouse for important minerals that you need throughout your life. But calcium-supplement-buyers beware! Know where the calcium came from, its source, and who made it. That bargain bottle of calcium may not provide what your body needs or the safe product you expect!

It’s estimated that nearly half of all Americans over age 50 may be at risk with their bone health. And countless others of all ages are not getting sufficient bone-building nutrients in their diets and the physical activity needed for bones strong enough to last a lifetime. Getting and absorbing sufficient calcium ideally starts early in life. At about age 30, you enter a normal bone mineral loss period. And here’s something that every woman needs to know: Your normal bone loss accelerates during and after menopause for about five to seven years before returning to the slightly slower rate that men experience.

Maintaining a healthy diet (dark, green leafy vegetables are rich in calcium!) and consistent exercise are essential to healthy, strong bones. Whenever you jump, run, or lift a weight, the stress of your muscles on your bones signals to your body to add new cells to strengthen your bones.

The type of calcium supplement you take also makes a difference. The calcium in many supplements on the market comes from mined limestone or oyster shells. We were never intended to eat rocks – or oyster shells – so why would you want to get your calcium from them? On product labels, if the source isn’t specified, the ingredients are most likely different forms of inexpensive-to-mine rock calcium!

In addition to Calcium, healthy bones and bone building require Vitamin D, which maintains skeletal calcium balance by promoting calcium absorption in your intestines and Magnesium, an important mineral that your body needs to build a strong bone matrix.*

At Millers, our Clinical Nutritionist recommends OsteoSheath which is Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D, Horsetail, Boron, Phosphorus, D3, B6, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum & Vanadium.
