What can I do to keep my bones healthy?
Although it's easy to forget, bone is living tissue just like the rest of your body. Throughout our lives, it naturally breaks down and reforms, again and again. This makes getting good nutrition to for new bone crystals--the building blocks of bone--key to keeping bones strong.
Of the calcium in the body, over 99% is found in the bones and teeth. That's why is makes sense that a bone-support supplement begins with calcium†--but doesn't end there.
To be truly effective, calcium needs to work hand-in-hand with magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin D.
Start by choosing one of the calcium-containing supplements below (Calcium, Liquid Calcium-Magnesium, OsteoPrime® bone formula or OsteoPrime® Plus bone formula) as a bone health foundation product.†
Then add one of the suggested additional support products if you have special concerns about keeping your bones healthy and strong.†
Other simple steps to keep bones healthy:
- Lifestyle choices (no smoking, minimize alcohol intake)
- Push, pull, and pressure on bones makes them strong -- keep up the weight bearing exercises
- Sit up straight, shoulders back, and practice good posture
- Minimize risk of trips and falls
- Put up a nightlight in the bathroom or hallway
- Consider whether you really need that throw rug, and at least make sure it has non-skid backing
- Fix loose steps
- Keep the floor clean so you don't trip over toys or electric wires
