Osteoporosis

What supplement do you automatically think of when I mention osteoporosis?  Most likely it is calcium.

Most of the time, my patients think it is necessary to take calcium for their bones.  Sometimes they test for it, but much of the time they don’t. Doesn’t it make sense that we utilize the nutrients in food better than in supplements?  There has been some concern that too many calcium pills might leave calcium deposits in the circulatory system, right where we don’t want them.  And to use the calcium in the bone, K2 and Vitamin D is needed.  As always, let’s take supplements judiciously.  

Most people have heard of the famous Framingham study.  Here is information that they found about osteoporosis in that study.  I will give you the punch line:  take vitamin C! Read this to understand just how important diet is to our health.
