Bone & Joint Health Supplements | For Your Body's Superstructure
Without strong bones and joints, not only will your body’s “superstructure” be weak, you may also suffer pain and discomfort. As we age, bone loss can develop into osteoporosis and brittle bones, leading to painful fractures and in some cases premature death. Arthritis may develop in the joints, causing debilitating pain.
It’s a common misconception that the cause of poor bone health is a lack of dietary calcium. In reality, this is just one factor in poor bone health. We all need a certain amount of calcium intake in an effective bio-available form…but, more often bone density loss is triggered when the blood becomes slightly acidic (I.e. the blood has a pH imbalance.)
The human body cannot survive if the blood becomes acidic, so the body’s systems will do as it normally does: Take action to ensure the immediate survival of the body even though it will lead to future problems at a later stage if not rectified…in this case by drawing calcium out of the bones to neutralize the acid in the blood.
How can I increase my bone density?
- Eat plenty of green vegetables to help maintain a healthy blood pH.
- Get plenty of sensible sunshine…without sunscreen. Vitamin D is crucial for good bone health. The amount of Vitamin D your body can produce and store in 20 minutes of direct sunshine is more than taking a month's worth of high dose of Vitamin D supplements. Plus there is reason to believe that the sunshine has health benefits that science is not even aware of yet.
- Have regular weight bearing exercise! This is critical…even if you are a great-grandma or grandpa! Resistance training strengthens bone and muscles, helping to increase bone density. It’s never too late to start.
In addition to diet, exercise and sunshine you can take supplements to help support a positive blood pH level. You can also take a quality calcium supplement, but don’t overdo it.
If you are already experiencing joint discomfort, there are some good joint supplements that will help support them and even help manage pain.
