Calcium Osteopenia. Calcium is necessary. But calcium alone will not build strong bones.

Calcium Osteopenia. It is common knowledge that we need calcium to build strong bones. But what not everyone realizes is that calcium alone can not guarantee strong bones. There are other minerals and activities that are needed to build bone. 

So there are three important questions we needs answered if we want strong bones: 

  1. How much Calcium do we need on a daily basis if we want strong bones?
  2. What is the best form of Calcium we can take to buld strong bones?
  3. What else do we need, besides calcium, if we want strong bones?

How much Calcium do we need if we want strong bones. The honest answer to this question is, "it depends". I know that may not be what you want to hear, BUT Calcium Osteopenia, Osteoporosis can be complicated.

The first thing we need to know is: How much of the calicum I take is actually absorbed?  Calcium is often mined from rock or sea shells. These forms of calcium are notoriously hard for the body to absorb. Some persons actully see their calicum tablets whole, undesolved in their toilet. When that happens, the body has NOT absorbed any of the calcium from those tablets. Buying that supplement may enrich its manufacturer but it is not helping you build stronger bones.

Second point about Calcium Osteopenia, Osteoporosis. If we want to absorb calcium, a very effective method is to get our daily calcium requirements through diet.

We need to make sure that our daily diet is not going to deplete our body of its calcium stores. Our body has a natural mechanism to keep our body's in perfect acid-alkaline balance. If we eat too much acidic food, our body pulls calicum from where it is stored in our bones and teeth so as to bring our body's back into acid-alkaline balance.  So the first step in preventing our store of calicum from our bones and teeth is to eat an Alkaline diet.  (To learn more, go to Acid-Alkaline diet )

 Third Point.  If you decide to supplement your diet with a calcium osteopenia, osteoporosis supplement, you will  want to choose one that has a record for being absorbed and for building bone. This is important. Many calcium supplement are not absorbed well. They just travel through the body and wind up in the toilet.

There are a few calcium supplements that have scientific evidence that they actually do build bone. (I have spent much time seeking them out and reading the scientific studies done on them).  If you want this information (and I encourage you to read it) just click on:  Supplements for Calcium Osteopenia, Osteoporosis 

But if you are a busy person you might want to save some time by reading about a Calcium Supplement that has been shown in scientific studies to:

                1. be absorbed and

                2. increase bone density.
