Review Finds That Early Calcium Supplementation Protects Against Osteoporosis


Increasing calcium intake earlier in life may protect against osteoporosis later in life, says a new review published in the eLife journal. [Source: nutraingredients-usa.com]


Osteoporosis is the world’s most common chronic bone disease. Characterized by increased bone fragility, it is seen in all age groups, genders, and races. It is estimated that more than 200 million people globally suffer from this disorder.

Statistics from the International Osteoporosis Foundation suggest that 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 years and 1 in 5 men will experience osteoporotic fractures during their lifetime. Fortunately, therefore, Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine approach provides the possibility to prevent and control osteoporosis naturally, without drugs.

Unlike conventional treatments, Dr. Rath’s approach addresses the root cause of osteoporosis by supplying optimum amounts of specific micronutrients that are needed to build and maintain healthy bones. While many people mistakenly believe that calcium and vitamin D are the only micronutrients needed for healthy bones, this overlooks the fact that the framework of bone on which calcium and other minerals are deposited is made of a protein – collagen.

Without healthy collagen, bone cannot form or function properly. Healthy bone formation therefore depends not only on having sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D, but more importantly on a proper supply of vitamin C, the amino acids lysine and proline, and other collagen-supporting micronutrients.
