Want Brick-Hard Bones? Do THIS
Jeri, a neighbor of mine, slipped and fell on the ice a few months ago.
She ended up breaking a bone.
“How did this happen?” she asked. “I’ve been taking 1,200 milligrams of calcium for years.”
And that might be the problem.
If you think taking calcium is enough to keep your bones strong, you’re setting yourself up for a HUGE disappointment.
Here’s what to do instead.
Maybe it’s because bones look hard like rocks, or maybe its because we like simple answers.
Or it might be because milk producers want you to believe you need it…
Either way, our obsession with calcium is not a good thing.
The way to get healthy bones is NOT to take calcium. In fact, many studies show us too much calcium harms our health (and our hearts).
Too much calcium also leads to kidney stones.
But more importantly, taking a lot of calcium is not the insurance policy so many people believed it was. You can force your bones to take on more calcium, but that does not stop them from breaking.
Your need for calcium is actually quite low, but your need for other nutrients is very high.
The problem is most of us get enough calcium and not enough of the other nutrients.
Think about how much calcium our largest-boned animals in the world, like elephants and giraffes, eat – almost none at all. These animals get some calcium, but only from the leaves and grasses they eat.
The key to these animals’ big bones is that they get enough nutrients like vitamin K and protein.
Here’s exactly what you need to keep your bones brick-hard as you age.
Dr. Scott’s Healthy Bone Plan:
- Protein is the forgotten nutrient needed for good bone health. Most proteins will help with bone growth, but collagen is extremely important to build good bones. I take a powered collagen product because collagen is hard to get in our diets. Vitamin C works with protein to create a collagen matrix.
- Vitamin K is another necessary and forgotten nutrient essential for bone building. Remember, if you are on blood thinners, to check with your doctor when taking vitamin K.
- Many minerals are also important for your bone health, including magnesium, boron, and chromium.
- Exercise not only helps your muscles to grow, but your bones. To build strong bones you have to move your body around (walking and running are your best bets).
