Stronger Bones in 6 Weeks (Here’s How)
If you want to stay active and independent, you need strong bones.
Simple as that.
Ladies, it feels like the minute you hit 50, your doctor starts warning you about bone loss.
And fellas, you’re not out of the woods, either. There are millions of American men with either osteoporosis or low bone density.
But whether you’re a man or a woman, there’s a key nutrient that can dramatically strengthen your bones in just 6 weeks (and it’s not calcium or vitamin D).
In a study published in Osteoporosis International, researchers looked into the effects of a specific type of vitamin E—called tocotrienols—on skeletal bone density.
Eighty-nine postmenopausal women who had weakness of the bones were divided into three groups: low dose tocotrienol (430 mg), high dose tocotrienol (860), or a placebo.
After just six weeks, both groups taking tocotrienols experienced decreases in bone resorption, which is the breakdown of tissue in bones.
Healthy bones are in a constant state of remodeling. There are cells that break down bone (osteoblasts), and cells that build new bone (osteoclasts).
When you’re younger, the breakdown and buildup of bones should happen at approximately the same rate.
The problem is that in older individuals, bone is broken down faster than it’s rebuilt. That’s what paves the way for the weak, brittle bones associated with osteoporosis.
This study showed that vitamin E can slow down the rate at which bones are broken down—which is a key factor in keeping your bones strong.
The study also showed that vitamin E can improve bone turnover rates. Improvements in these rates is an indication of less bone loss.
Not surprisingly, then, all of the markers that indicate weakening of the bones were dramatically decreased in the people taking tocotrienols.
The key tocotrienol providing these impressive results was the delta-tocotrienols.
An easy way to boost your vitamin E is to eat more vitamin E-rich foods… like nuts, salmon, avocado, eggs, spinach, and broccoli.
