What is osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis, also known as bone loss, is a common disease. The normal balance between bone formation and bone loss is disturbed. The predominant degradation processes lead to a loss of bone mass which in turn represents an increased risk of bone fractures.
The generation 45 plus is mainly effected, i.e. women during and after menopause, men over 45 years of age, people with a lack of exercise and an insufficient diet of calcium and vitamin D.
Unfortunately, osteoporosis is often not recognized until late because the disease has developed long time ago without pain.
How to prevent?
It is important to do regular physical activities to strengthen bones and muscles.
Do not drink or smoke.
Make sure you get enough calcium, because it strengthens the bones. For example, foods rich in calcium are dairy products, kale, broccoli and nuts. The daily calcium intake should be 1,000 to 1,500 mg.
A sufficient supply of vitamin D3 is important, as vitamin D supports the effect of calcium in the body. Vitamin D is taken with food and formed by the skin when exposed to the sun.
A lack of Vitamin D can easily occur, especially in the winter months. The daily intake should be 400 to 1,200 I.U.
You can also take calcium and vitamin D as a combinated product.
