The Big Lie about Calcium Supplementation

The big lie pertains mostly to calcium supplementation. Calcium from raw whole foods is beneficial and necessary. But all those processed foods fortified with calcium or supplements high in elemental* calcium are likely to do more harm than good.

Bone Health and Calcium

Several international trials and tests have determined that calcium supplementation makes bones denser, but weaker! The calcium for bone health paradigm is a serious oversimplification.

Other minerals, such as magnesium, are part of the bone health paradigm. Dr. Robert Thompson, author of The Calcium Lie, explains that there are a dozen minerals involved with building strong bones. He recommends using unprocessed sea salt to compliment your trace mineral needs, which we don’t get because of the depleted topsoil in agriculture. Continue reading

Gradual Bone Reduction Seen in Some Pill Users

Changes in bone density in oral contraceptive users depends on age and hormone dose

Birth control pills may reduce a woman’s bone density, according to a study published online July 13 in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism by Group Health Research Institute (GHRI) scientists. Impacts on bone were small, depended on the woman’s age and the pill’s hormone dose, and did not appear until about two years of use. The study size and design allowed the researchers to focus on 14- to 18-year-old teenagers, and to look at how bone density might change when a woman stops using the pill.

GHRI Senior Investigator Delia Scholes, PhD, led the study. Hormones are a key component of bone health, she says, and hormonal contraceptives are a major source of external hormones for women—the pill is the most common birth control method worldwide. A woman’s risk of fractures later in life is influenced by the bone mass she gains in her teens through her 20s, and this age group has the highest use of oral contraceptives. Continue reading

Strontium not only slows down the breakdown of bone, it actually stimulates new bone growth. That’s unheard of. No other nutrient can work so well at doing both.

Strontium: TheRemarkable Bone-Building Superstar Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About

If you’re at high risk for osteoporosis, strontium may help. But whatever you do, please don’t confuse it with strontium-90, the man-made, radioactive compound that has nothing to do with bone health!

Natural strontium is a non-toxic trace mineral that studies show can help fragile bones weakened by age, race, heredity, or other factors become stronger and more flexible. Natural strontium is safe, even in high doses.

Strontium is chemically similar to calcium, but it’s Continue reading
