How to Enjoy Life Longer and Avoid the ER

Avoid crippling osteoporosis. Enjoy good bone health by adding calcium citrate in a bio-available powder supplement. Natural bone deterioration can be reversed preventing breakage. Enjoy life longer and avoid the ER by taking precautions against rapid bone loss.

Maybe you don’t worry too much about dying young. Neither do I. The quality of life, including mobility and mental alertness, as we grow older, is far more important. Health for elderly Americans is increasingly a concern of the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Internet sites on the topic are numerous. Clearly, precautions to prevent chronic disease, must be taken early to avoid physical and mental decline at the end of life.

Chronic diseases disproportionately affect older adults and are associated with disability, diminished quality of life, and increased costs for health care and long-term care. Today, about 80% of older adults have at least one chronic condition, and 50% have at least two, according to the NIH. Public health is a government concern as universal health coverage and coverage for preventable disease is part of the national health insurance package. our health becomes everyone’s concern if it hits the national pocketbook.

Many of the diseases are preventable with increased awareness of health and dietary needs. Many older folks, men as well as women suffer from osteoporosis, or decreased bone density. This is, according to medical studies, a natural process of aging. From the age of 30, bones naturally decline in strength. However, for a significant number of adults, this happens earlier and more rapidly than normal. Click here for my Special Offer.

A healthy diet throughout life may be a contributing factor. For women of childbearing age, the bones themselves contain minerals that help the fetus grow, and this is a source of nutrients, especially if the mother’s diet is not adequate.

In later life, Hormone Replacement Therapy prevents bone deterioration, but after going off  HRT, testing for bone density is a standard precaution. Medication to prevent bone deterioration is often prescribed for those suffering from osteopenia, (go ahead and look it up on Wikipedia) without having any noticeable symptoms.

Osteopenia and osteoporosis are varying degrees of bone loss, as measured by bone mineral density, a marker for how strong a bone is and the risk that it might break. Osteopenia, which affects about half of Americans over age 50, is a condition of bone loss that has not reached a critical stage. Men as well as women suffer from Osteopenia, although women suffer more frequently then men. DXA bone density testing (a low level x-ray test) reveals the level of bone loss.

Without testing, the first indication of osteoporosis is usually a broken bone. Although your health coverage may not include medication for osteopenia, as mine doesn’t, I think it prudent to prevent bone fracture and the worsening of the bone density with available medication. I agree with my doctor, who prescribed the medication. Another doctor recommended I wait until osteoporosis to begin medication, so that the treatment medication would be paid for in the health plan. Because I cannot afford hospitalization and time spent recovering, I prefer preventative measures. I also fear that a broken ankle or foot may not return to its former condition. A fall is often caused by the breaking of a fragile bone. This can have other serious consequences as well. For example falling on a stairway or when embarking from a city bus. So even though my health fund does not cover the medication, I continue to buy the prescription and take the daily dosage. Furthermore. I detect overall health benefits. Stronger bones significantly contribute to overall health.

Dietary concerns, such as getting adequate calcium and vitamin D, throughout life, are crucial for healthy bones. Vitamin D is naturally absorbed from sunlight, but often that is not sufficient. We are indoors most of the day, and in winter months especially, do not get enough sunlight exposure. Along with Evista  (raloxifene hydrochloride) medication, I take daily calcium supplements and vitamin D.

There are many calcium supplements on the market. A good way to test the solubility of the various tables is to measure how long it takes a table to dissolve in a glass of water. However, for the greatest bio-availability, a powder supplement from Marvalous is superior. Vitamin D is added to most of the calcium supplements, although additional drops may be prescribed for low vitamin D or night workers.

Calcium citrate, such as Calcium, allows for absorption even after a dairy meal. Calcium without the citrate form, will not absorb easily into the blood stream and be circulated to have the desired effect of bone strengthening, unless taken with a non-dairy or cheese meal. Coffee may also inhibit absorption.

While calcium citrate may cost more at the pharmacy counter, the saving in terms of health could be enormous. For maximum absorption, Marvalous calcium citrate offers the best protection. Saving your bone quality is vital to your continued health. However, only rarely will the addition of calcium to the diet increase bone density. It seems the wise choice to add a highly bio-available calcium supplement, such as Marvalous calcium to your diet. Click here to find out about the free gift offer.
