At age 35 women lose bone tissue three times faster. Female athletes run an equivalent risk at any age. The culprit is malabsorption of calcium.
Here’s what you need to do…
- Get sufficient vitamin D from sunshine Ideally 20% of your skin needs to be exposed for 20 to 30 minutes daily.
- Eat calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll, and mineral rich foods – grains, legumes, leafy greens, and sea vegetables.
- Exercise regularly to halt calcium loss and increase bone mass. (Convalescent people need to walk or stand daily if possible.)
- If you’re in bad shape and your diet is poor, take calcium supplements and include plenty of green vegetables in your diet to maximize assimilation.
(Note: Consult you doctor before taking supplements, especially if you have a history of kidney stones.)
