America's Bones Are Crumbling

I was startled to read a research study recently week on the “crumbling bones of America.”

It says that over 60% of Americans fail to get adequate amounts of Calcium! Osteoporosis (porous bones) is  becoming an epidemic, particularly among women. But men are also “crumbling”.

How can this be? So many people take  Calcium supplements, drink milk by the gallon and eat cheese and ice cream without benefit. What has gone wrong?

This week’s Health Alert will debunk the myths behind Calcium supplementation and what truly is required to grow strong, healthy bones.

What's in Bone Density?

Bone DensityBone Density is great for healing broken bones as well as reversing the effects of Osteoporosis. It comes in a giant, economy-sized 240 capsule bottle to save money and your bones! Here’s what’s inside each capsule:

Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite (MCHA): A natural compound that makes up the crystalline matrix of bone and teeth and is the substance that gives them their rigidity. MCHA is a source of highly absorbable calcium and phosphorus, which are the major mineral components of bone, teeth, strong, healthy hair, nails and skin. Those suffering from “thin skin” and who bruise and bleed easily are always deficient in MCHA.

VITAMIN C: The prime antioxidant vitamin, vital for a host of duties in the body, in particular to fight free radical formation. Free radicals are the “pac man” that devour cellular tissue. Vitamin C is necessary in large, daily amounts to fight bone degradation.

VITAMIN D-3 (Cholecalciferol): The bone vitamin, now being hailed as a “miracle vitamin” to fight bone wasting and degradation and also in the fight against cancer. The body manufactures its own Vitamin D from early morning sunlight (15 minutes is all you need) but cannot make enough to rebuild bones.

VITAMIN K-1 (Phytonadione): An amazing, natural element found in green, leafy vegetables and their leaves. It is the key to bone density. Vitamin K acts like a “key” that opens the door from the blood and allows the Calcium to flow into the bones. Without vitamin K, Calcium cannot flow into the bones! It is for this reason that a proprietary version of vitamin K is the number one selling Osteoporosis drug in Japan!

Vitamin D could save your life!

Think you’ve heard all there is to know about miraculous Vitamin D-3? I did.

And then someone sent me a full, in-depth report that really opened my eyes and made me, a passionate advocate for Vitamin D-3 for years, literally double my daily intake! So should you, or so WILL YOU, when you read this extraordinary report.

Vitamin D Deficiency is Becoming Alarmingly Common

Ever since the misguided medical advice to avoid sunshine (which makes over 90% of our Vitamin D), health problems associated with low levels have skyrocketed.

Vitamin D is not only a vitamin, but also an important hormone, with deficiencies causing widespread problems.

In fact, Vitamin D deficiency in the United States alone:

  • Is estimated to causes severe immune dysfunction, causing 85,000 extra cancer deaths a year
  • Increases osteoporosis
  • Increases pain in chronic pain conditions
  • Not only increases osteoporosis, but also the risk of falling
  • Significantly increases the risk of Multiple Sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and diabetes

Vitamin D treatment can also improve lung function and help people with asthma, while also decreasing the risk of heart disease, hypertension and stroke.

Because Vitamin D is stored in the fatty tissue (fat soluble) instead of being washed out in the urine (water soluble), it is possible to overdose if you get too much. This scares people away from getting the optimal dose, even though 10 times our current RDA (also known as “Ridiculously Low Allowance”) of 400IU’s a day is safe.

For those with decreased bone density, the dosage recommended is from 2000-4000 units a day. Otherwise, 1000-2000 units a day is optimal. Most importantly, remember to go for walks and get your sunshine.

Sunshine is good for you! For optimal health, avoid sunburn – but not your sunshine. Get 15 minutes of sunshine on your near-naked body at mid-day, when the sun is at its highest.

Vitamin D Deficiency is very common. Amazing as it may seem, with so many nutritional products being consumed these days, Vitamin D deficiency is rampant. This nutrient deficiency is critical, causing tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths each year in the United States alone. Because of this, and the deadly recommendation to avoid being out in the sun without sunscreen, Vitamin D deficiency is very real and getting worse.
