Bones and teeth are living tissue and require certain nutrients to stay strong and healthy.


Seven Supplements that Build and Preserve Strong Bones

  • Calcium—It’s the primary nutrient for bone health. While 98% of all calcium in the body is stored in the bones, this mineral is also necessary to keep the entire body from becoming too acidic. If you don’t take in enough calcium, the body will instinctively pull it from your bones to stay alive. The RDI is 1000 mg.
  • Magnesium—This mineral is critical to the skeletal system, and with an RDI of 400 mg, many individuals look to supplements to meet this need. The downside of magnesium supplementation for some people, however, is that it causes loose stools. If this is your situation, avoid magnesium chloride, carbonate or oxide, choosing magnesium citrate, aspartate, or an amino acid chelated form like Albion Magnesium in the Swanson Ultra line.
  • Vitamin D—Your body actually makes this vitamin when skin is exposed to sunlight. For anyone who spends little to no time in the sun, though, supplementation with vitamin D may be important. The elderly in particular have been known to have low levels of vitamin D.
  • Boron—This trace mineral enhances the use of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D in bone formation and structure.
  • Vitamin K—It helps activate a protein called osteocalcin that aids in bone building.
  • Ipriflavone—A specific isoflavone that helps preserve bone density when taken with calcium. Visit www.ostivone.com for more information on how trademarked Ostivone ipriflavone works to accomplish bone health.
  • Silica—This trace mineral regenerates body infrastructure including the skeleton, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, connective tissue, skin, hair and nails. Levels of silica in the body decrease with age and are needed in larger quantity by seniors.

Six Ways to Preserve Your Bones and Teeth
  • Canned salmon is surprisingly high in calcium at 200 milligrams per 3 ounce serving. It’s actually the bones in the fish that provide the calcium. The fish—bones and all—is steamed before canning, and this process softens the bones so you’re not really aware that you’re eating them. Plus the high content of omega-3 fatty acids in salmon makes this a five-star health food!
  • Take an enzyme supplement with every meal since this significantly aids your body’s ability to absorb the calcium and magnesium from food.
  • Have a serving of coleslaw at least once a week. Cabbage is a particularly good source of vitamin K, but this nutrient is also present in most green vegetables.
  • Eat organic raw almonds. A handful (one ounce) provides 70 mg of calcium and 78 mg of magnesium, both important minerals for bone health, plus they’re a great source of natural vitamin E.
  • Add nonfat powdered milk to everything—soups, casseroles, baked goods and drinks. It’s an easy and effective way to sneak more calcium into your diet—especially if you don’t like drinking milk.
  • Weight-bearing exercise is an important way to build bone and prevent bone loss. It doesn’t have to be strenuous, though, as duration is more important than intensity.
