Women & Osteoporosis Prevention

osteoporosis prevention for women

O3 Bone & Joint Essential and Premium Optimal Health Formulas contain adequate sources of calcium, needed for optimal bone density and bone maintenance and include the appropriate balance of calcium and vitamin D for favorable calcium absorption and bone health. Formulated by an orthopedic surgeon, the O3 Bone &Joint Formulas will give you a natural way to build bone density. O3 Essential was formulated to introduce into young adulthood to optimize peak bone density. The ingredients of O3 Bone & Joint Premium aid in the improvement of bones, joints and connective tissues that have already shown signs of degradation.

Osteoporosis is diagnosed when bones lose their bone density, becoming brittle, leading to a higher chance of fractures. Osteoporosis affects an estimated 200 million women globally. Although osteoporosis affects all of the bones in your body, the most common sites of fracture are the hip, the vertebrae and the wrist. It is much less intensive to prevent osteoporosis in the first place, rather than instigating osteoporosis treatment, once it has been diagnosed.
 

 

Women are at a higher risk than men for developing osteoporosis.

Women that are in older age brackets who have experienced menopause, that have small bone frames, that have a family history of osteoporosis, being of white or Asian descent, having some disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes or anorexia nervosa, or taking certain medications such as glucocorticoids, some antiseizure medicines, gonadotropin-releasing hormone, antiacids that contain aluminum and some cancer treatments, have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis. Controllable factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol intake, low dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D and leading a sedentary lifestyle can also contribute to a higher incidence of osteoporosis.

To find out if your bones are weakening, you can have your doctor prescribe a bone density test, known as dual-energy X-ray absortiometry, commonly known as DEXA. If you are 65 or older, you should get a bone density test to make sure that your bone density is at a normal level for your age bracket. If you are under age 65, and have additional risk factors for developing osteoporosis, check with your physician to see if it would be a good idea to have a bone density scan done early. If you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, your physician will work with you to form a osteoporosis treatment program, using lifestyle modifications and osteoporosis medications to improve your bone health and prevent any further loss of bone density.
 

 

Bone loss is inevitable as you age, but you can follow specific steps to slow down the process:

Make sure you are getting adequate daily amounts of calcium and vitamin D.
For teen girls, 1,300 mg of calcium per day is recommended to achieve an optimal peak bone mass. For women between the ages of 19 and 70, 1,000 mg is recommended. If you are 71 years of age or older, 1,200 mg of calcium is recommended for you each day. Daily vitamin D intake should be 600 IU for teens and women up to age 70, and 800 IU for those over age 70. Since vitamin D is difficult to come by in a typical American diet, vitamin D supplements may be recommended. If you are lactose intolerant, vegetarian, have experienced menopause or have a condition that negatively affects the absorption of these nutrients, your physician may recommend a vitamin D and calcium supplement. 

Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet.
Choose a variety of foods that are nutrient-dense, which tend to be whole foods, versus processed foods. Other nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and protein help in building strong bones, ensuring adequate bone health. Be sure to include dairy, lean meat, fish, leafy greens and citrus fruits into your diet for plenty of these nutrients. Calcium and vitamin D filled lactose-free products, along with fortified soy beverages and orange juice, exist on the market as healthy alternatives. 

Exercise regularly.
Exercise can help slow down the process of bone loss as you age and will help improve your muscle strength and balance. Weight-bearing activities tend to promote the preservation of bone, such as walking, light weight lifting, jogging, hiking, stair climbing, or your favorite sports like tennis. Gardening and heavy housework also count as weight bearing exercise.

Lead a healthy lifestyle.
Habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption have a negative effect on your bone mass. If you smoke, try to quit or cut back. If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation. Moderate alcohol consumption is one beverage per day for females.
