How to Prevent Osteoporosis

How to Prevent Osteoporosis. Having your bones deteriorate from osteoporosis
is a scary thought, but preventing osteoporosis doesn’t have to be difficult. You will need Calcium Exercise Vitamin D and
a bone density test. Step 1. Learn if you’re at risk. Women are four times as likely to get osteoporosis
than men, but men can still get it. Step 2. Get enough calcium. Recommended daily intakes are: 800 milligrams
for children, 1,300 milligrams for teens, 1,000 milligrams for adults up to age 50,
and 1,200 milligrams for people 51 and over. Calcium helps our bones stay strong. Good sources of calcium include dairy, sardines,
fortified juice and cereal, and leafy greens. Step 3. If you can’t get enough calcium through your
diet, take supplements. Be aware, however, that your body can only
absorb about 500 milligrams of calcium at a time. Step 4. Get enough vitamin D, which helps the body
absorb calcium. Children, teens, and adults up to age 50 need
200 international units per day, while older adults need 400 to 600. You can get vitamin D through sun exposure
and certain foods. Foods high in vitamin D include salmon, tuna,
mackerel, egg yolks, and fortified milk, juice, and cereal. Step 5. Exercise regularly. Weight-bearing physical activity is especially
important, such as walking, jogging, tennis, and dancing. Step 6. As you age, get your bone density tested. Even if you do everything right, genetics
also play a role, and early diagnosis is always best. Did you know The term osteoporosis was coined
by French pathologist Jean Lobstein.


  1. Look it up, people! This video is perpetuating the myth about calcium. The US has the largest average calcium intake and the HIGHEST rate of osteoporosis in the world!

  2. I agree. You can blame the American Dairy Industry. They planted this bullshit by paying off Congress and changing the pyramid. They also got Congress to brainwash our children into providing milk to our kids in our schools. Again as always it's money from special interests that perpetuate this myth. Read the book and NY Times Bestseller, "The China Study" by Campbell it's awesome. It refutes this nonsense.

  3. The approach is very limited. In addition the suggested vitamin D dose in not large enough to raise the circulating vitamin D levels to sufficient level. Adults need about 75 mcg (3000 IU) of vitamin D3 daily.

  4. You have to distribute your calcium intake and not eat the whole daily intake of 1000 mg at one time, but lets say 500 mg in the morning and 500 mg in the evening.

  5. funny, people eat a lot of cheese, milk, yogurt, pills, still osteoporosis. But NO, don't eat broccoli/celery/kale/banana/etc. cause they don't do anything. We need to get our calcium from cow titties and pasteurize and homogenize it

  6. Follow that video and you'll get osteoporosis and HEART DISEASE!

    To prevent osteoporosis: eat green vegetables daily like lettuce so that you can get minerals like magnesium which make bones strong and increase BMD, take vitamin k2 so that calcium can end up in your bones and NOT your blood vessels or heart valves…..To see how crucial vitamin k is to bones and heart, google: 'warfarin osteoporosis' or 'warfarin heart disease'

    Note: warfarin Inhibits vitamin k.

  7. Supplementing with calcium and vitamin d can be dangerous because you GET TOO MUCH CALCIUM IN YOUR BLOOD, and it can't get into your bones so IT GOES INTO YOUR SOFT TISSUE like blood vessels, joints, bone-spurs grow on heel, calcium builds up on heart valves and damage them, you get alligator skin, etc..

    If you do take a calcium supplement along with a vitamin d3 pill, then YOU HAD BETTER TAKE Vitamin K2 along with them or you will end UP giving yourself heart disease in say 15 years.

  8. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. Follow this video if you WANT to get Osteoporosis. No-one has ever been calcium deficient! Period! Don't eat crap, eat lots of greens, little meat, exercise, a bit of sun, but FFS don't eat dairy – it's poison!

  9. I very recently was diagnosed with osteoporosis. Have suffered with R.A. for 25 yrs. Also bad back..for abt 15 yrs. Lower lumbar. Only the most painful of my medical problems.
