6 Need to Know Tips on How to Build Strong Bones and Help Prevent Osteoporosis

In this article, you will  learn how to build strong bones and strategies to  prevent osteoporosis. We’ll also explore how osteoarthritis occurs and causes joint pain and inflammation.

Tip 1 – Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D and Vitamin K strengthens bones and are some of the most important minerals and vitamins needed to keep your bones strong and functioning properly.

Tip 2 – Exercise helps prevent osteoporosis and is important to prevent osteoporosis and to stimulate new bone growth. Bones, just like muscles, become stronger with exercise. Physical activity, especially during childhood and adolescence, can greatly help in increasing strength and bone density.

Tip 3 – Add fermented foods to your diet to make your bones strong. Fermented foods like yogurt and kombucha have high levels of probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria that reside in your intestinal tract and promote health. Researches indicate that the use of fermented milk products and probiotics can help increase bone mineral density.

Fruits and Veggies

Tip 4 – Consume plenty of fruits, vegetables, herbs & spices to help prevent osteoporosis. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices are rich in bone-friendly plant nutrients like polyphenols, essential oils and health-promoting sulfur compounds. These nutrients offer potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant protection. Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are driving forces behind osteoporosis, since they dramatically increase bone resorption and cause a decrease in new bone production.

Tip 5 – Getting the right amount of sleep helps keep your bones strong. Interestingly, too much and too little sleep are both associated with osteoporosis. Finding the right balance for your body is essential to bone health. Chinese researchers in a study published Osteoporosis International found that those who sleep less than 6 hours daily and those who slept more than 8 hrs a day had an increased risk of osteoporosis.

Tip 6 – Excessive tobacco & alcohol use weakens bones. Smoking, as we all know, is bad for our health. Nicotine, in addition to all the havoc it wreaks in your body, also inhibits the bone protective effects of estrogen. Women who smoke go through a menopausal period earlier than expected, hence hastening the development of osteoporosis. Additionally, getting more than 2 alcohol drinks daily is linked to greater chances of bone loss and fractures

What can you do now to prevent or treat osteoporosis?

Your bone health is just too important not to invest in! Start early and make bone health a part of your daily routine. Thankfully, it’s never too late nor never too early to start building strong bones. Irrespective of your age and the degree of osteoporosis in your body, your body is always  able to make new, strong bone.” End excerpt. Here is the link to the full article.

327 – CBD for gut health and intestinal balance

CBD is perhaps most well-known for its benefits to the brain. Previously we have discussed issues like sleep, mood, stress, anxiety and inflammation. Those are powerful and significant all on their own. But research and experience is revealing that CBD has profound benefits throughout the body. Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors are found in abundance in the gut.
What is emerging in the science is that the ECS receptors are found throughout the body but especially in the brain and gut is where most of the heavy lifting is done. This connection between the brain and the gut has emerged to be one of the most important realizations of the past decade. We even hear of the gut referred to as the second brain. And we know when the gut is out of sorts, out whole system suffers.

323 – The Endocannabinoid System – Part 5 – Endo Inflame

This is the fifth and final interview with Dr. Jeffrey Burke on the Endocannabinoid support products from Emerald Health Bioceuticals. This has been a fascinating and in-depth look at the endocannabinoid system and at how nutritional herbs provide deep support. CLICK HERE for access to all the interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Burke.
If you deal with pain and inflammation then it is in your interest to explore the world of nutritional solutions. Remember that pain and inflammation are symptoms of underlying disorder. Reducing pain and inflammation is important especially for those with chronic conditions. Using products like Endo Inflame can provide relief and comfort, which are very important, but they often don’t address underlying issues. For example, if you have joint pain for whatever reason, it is often necessary to seek relief from the pain. But for long term success you must also support the inflamed system or tissues. In the joint pain example, you want to support bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen, synovial fluid, circulation, muscles etc.

321 – Peace Possible and the Food Movement

Dr. Weiss has taken the road less traveled when it comes to aiding poor and impoverished children around the world. He started by asking the question “What causes youth to become radicalized and fall prey to the terrorists groups to which they become aligned?” This is a very profound question and the answer is just as profound.Dr. Weiss has set up numerous operations around the globe which focus on providing what these communities need in order to reverse the trend to radicalization. Ultimately the solution involves creating environments where people have opportunity to live healthy and productive lives. Proper and targeted nutrition can make a huge difference. It is impossible to gain an education and become a productive adult when day to day circumstances make life dangerous. Lack of the essential factors of life make it nearly impossible not to be adversely affected.
