Nutrition / Research / December 9, 2014

You know your body and your bones need certain vitamins like C and D in order to properly function. But did you know that in order to properly absorb and use those vitamins it takes a team effort? Let me explain. Vitamins are generally classified into two categories: water soluble and fat soluble. Water-soluble vitamins include all of the B vitamins and vitamin C. These vitamins are dissolved in water and if there is excess in your system, your body flushes them out. Fat-soluble vitamins on the other hand, such as vitamins A, D, E and K, are similar to oil and don’t dissolve in water. Unlike water-soluble vitamins, any excess of these vitamins in your system will be stored in your liver and fatty tissues until the body needs them. The Fat-Soluble Balancing Act Vitamins and minerals work together…

Bone-Healthy Living / Health / Osteoporosis / November 20, 2014

If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis (severely low bone density) you were most likely advised to take prescription bone drugs to stop or reduce bone loss. So it follows that if you’ve been diagnosed with osteopenia (also known as low bone density) you should be given the same prescription, right? Not exactly. In fact, recent well-designed, large scale studies show quite the opposite. I know you’re probably thinking that doesn’t make any sense, but the bone drugs most commonly used to treat osteoporosis such as bisphosphonates do not reduce fracture risk for those with osteopenia.[1] In fact, The National Osteoporosis Foundation only recommends the use of bisphosphonates for select patients with specific, elevated risks of hip or other major bone fractures, usually meaning osteoporosis or osteopenia with a fracture.[2] So Why Are So Many with Osteopenia Being Prescribed Medication? Bone…

Magnesium / Nutrition / Research / September 5, 2014

Do you need more energy? If you’re like most of our readers, you live a fast paced life. Maybe you are juggling grandkids on the weekend. Perhaps you’ve started to travel, or maybe you’re taking classes for a new found hobby. Or you may have a more flexible schedule – but flexible doesn’t necessarily mean relaxing! In fact, many of you have told us you’re more active now than at any other time of your lives. If that’s true for you, and you often feel tired, worn out, and lethargic, despite exercising and getting lots of rest, one possible cause is a lack of magnesium in your diet. Magnesium is a vital mineral that has been shown to positively impact energy, muscle function and bone quality (when taken with calcium and vitamin D). And studies show as many as 80%…

Nutrition / Recipes / August 29, 2014

This no-crust spinach pie is a healthy and simple recipe to put in your lunch or dinner rotation! Spinach provides a fully loaded, nutrient-rich package in a small amount of calories. Dark leafy greens such as spinach are important for skin, hair and bone health and also provide iron and vitamins and minerals. If you are worried about spinach being high in oxalates, don’t be. While there have been studies indicating that oxalate foods such as spinach inhibit calcium absorption, the reduction is quite small and should not prevent you from eating spinach. The many valuable nutrients it contains far outweighs this concern. If you would like an alternative though, you can use kale instead, which also is a nutrient-dense vegetable boasting high amounts of calcium and vitamin K.
