“Dynamic Duo” REDUCES Hip Fracture Risk
Nutrients needed for bone health
People do all kinds of crazy things in the name of good health.
One of the craziest is not eating meat.
Not eating meat or any other product of an animal… so no eggs, milk, cheese, or even honey.
But vegans aren’t just missing out on some of the best-tasting foods out there.
They’re missing out on the nutrients these foods provide, which sets them up for all kinds of health problems… and a significantly increased risk of hip fracture is a big one.
The best solution for that is to not be a vegan.
But, the next best thing is to add in two supplements that can remove the increased risk.
This “dynamic duo” can help protect your bones even if you’re not vegan, too.
A hip fracture is the worst of the worst.
They’re often a death sentence for older people, dramatically increasing the risk of dying within the next 12 months.
Vegan women have a significantly higher risk of a hip fracture, which makes sense since studies consistently show that they have a lower bone mineral density than non-vegans.
The Adventist Health Study 2 used questionnaires to examine the relationship between lifestyle and health outcomes.
In women, there was a significant association between a vegan diet and increased risk of hip fracture.
In fact, they had a 53-percent higher age-adjusted risk compared to non-vegans.
However, when vegan women supplemented with both calcium and vitamin D, their risk lowered to that of non-vegans.
Basically, vitamin D and calcium helped cancel out the increased fracture risk of a vegan diet.
This makes sense since these two nutrients are the dynamic duo for bone health.
Calcium helps build and maintain bone, while vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium.
And if you’re not getting adequate calcium through sources dairy, you’ll need to add in a supplement to make up for what you’re missing.
The moral of the story?
Don’t adopt a way of eating that can’t give you all of the nutrients you need.
But if you do, know that you’ll need to add in powerful nutrients like calcium and vitamin D to make up for what you’re missing.
