Dr. G’s #1 Way to STOP Bone Fractures
If you’re not thinking about your bones… you should be.
Weak bones are one of those sneaky health problems that you don’t know is a problem until it’s too late.
And falls – and the resulting fractures – are one of the leading causes of disability and decreased qualityof life among older people.
Luckily, there’s an easy way you can help keep your bones – and your independence – as you get older.
It’s my #1 recommendation for bone health… and it can lower your risk of a fracture by 44%.
The two most well-known nutrients for strong bones are calcium and vitamin D.
But there’s a third piece to the bone puzzle that often gets overlooked.
I’m talking about magnesium.
Studies have shown that a deficiency in magnesium increases the risk of brittle bones and osteoporosis.
This is because magnesium is essential for vitamin D and calcium to be able to carry out their bone-building tasks.
Now, a new study has directly linked low magnesium levels with increased fracture risk.
The study evaluated over 2,000 middle-agedmen over a 25-year period, and it turned out that men with high levels of magnesium havea 44% reduced risk of having had a fracture.
And in the men with VERY high magnesium levels? They didn’t suffer from a single broken bone.
In most cases, I’d recommend getting more magnesium from dietary sources like leafy greens, fish, and meat. But many older people have trouble with absorption – think of it like a leaky bucket.
That’s why I think it’s a good idea to consider supplementing with magnesium to make sure you’re getting – and keeping – enough to help prevent fractures.
The recommended daily allowance for men is 300 milligrams, and for women, it’s 270 milligrams.
You can pick up magnesium supplements at your local pharmacy.
