Bone Health Bone Health

osteoporosisA person who does not take the recommended daily amounts of Calcium and Vitamin D3, are at a risk of Calcium and Vitamin D3 deficiency, which can increase the risk of developing Osteoporosis. Adequate calories, carbohydrates, fibre and especially protein, are essential for healthy bones. The bones of people with Osteoporosis, are more fragile and as a result are at increased risk of fracturing a bone (breaking a bone). Your body needs Vitamin D3 to absorb Calcium. Even if you consume adequate Calcium you may not be absorbing it unless you are taking sufficient Vitamin D.

Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being removed and replaced. As we get older, more bone is naturally lost than is replaced, but people with Osteoporosis lose more bone than people who do not have the disease. Osteoporosis causes bones to become fragile and therefore they break easily e.g., through a minor bump or fall from a standing position or less.

world-factsIt is estimated that 300,000 people in Ireland have Osteoporosis, yet only 15% of people are diagnosed.

1 in 4 men and 1 in 2 women over 50 will fracture a bone as a result of this Silent condition, and children can also be affected. 90% of hip fractures are due to Osteoporosis, this is why it is so important for people to check if they are at risk. (Irish Osteoporosis Society)

What can I do to keep my bones strong?

Ensure to take the daily recommended amount of Calcium and Vitamin D3 which can be found in Shake Up 50+ for both the prevention and treatment of Osteoporosis, along with appropriate weight bearing exercise which is essential at all ages to maintain and increase bone density and strength. Examples of weight bearing activities include dancing, walking, running, soccer, tennis, stair climbing and weight training.

image014Sarcopenia is a disease associated with the aging process. Loss of muscle mass and strength, which in turn affects balance, gait and overall ability to perform tasks of daily living.

It is increasingly recognized as a series health problem afflicting millions of aging adults and generally appears after the age of 40 and accelerates thereafter. Sarcopenia and Osteoporosis are related conditions, and one often accompanies or follows the other. Muscles generate the mechanical activity required to keep our bones healthy. When this muscle activity is reduced, it increases our susceptibility to a loss of bone loss.

image015Inadequate protein intake is a major factor contributing to Sarcopenia, and the effects can be reduced by taking the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of 45 gram of protein per day or more.
