Porous bone, is characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist.
Bone Tissue Example: Micrographs of biopsy specimens of normal and porous bone.
|A. 75-year-old normal woman
|B. 47-year-old woman who had vertebral compression fractures
Porous bone is a devastating condition which affects over 23,000,000 Americans, crippling more than 1,200,000 each year.
Add 80 percent of all people over 40 who show signs of bone problems to this equation, and the number of people who suffer from some form of structural weakness becomes staggering!
Research shows that we need more nutrients than previously thought for healthy maintenance of teeth, bones, joints and muscles.
Because of accelerated bone loss, extreme bone fragility and increased susceptibility to bone fractures, it has been clinically linked to insufficient dietary calcium.
Surveys indicate that few people consume necessary amounts of bone-building nutrients in their everyday eating. Less than 35% of women, for example, consume the 1,000 milligrams of calcium recommended by regulatory agencies, and far less consume the 1,200 milligrams recommended by leading nutritionists.
Porous Bones must NOT be mistaken for an
"old persons' problem." It can happen at ANY age.
Frighteningly, evidence of dietary calcium deficiencies is even showing up in teens, preteens, even children.
80% of those affected by bone conditions are women.
8 million American women and 2 million men have porous bones, and millions more have low bone density.
One in two women and one in eight men over age 50 will have an porous bone related fracture in their lifetime.
Significant risk has been reported in people of all ethnic backgrounds.
Women can lose up to 20% of their bone mass in the 5-7 years following menopause, making them more susceptible to a bone problem.
What Can You Do?
You can make smarter choices about what you eat. Add calcium-rich foods such as low-fat dairy products and broccoli to your daily diet. If you can’t get enough calcium from your diet, you can add a calcium supplement like OsteoMegaCare to your daily routine.
