WEEK 42 (2022) – Keeping Your Bones Strong and Healthy At Any Age

Today is World Osteoporosis Day (20th October), so this newsletter is about raising awareness of how to care for our bone health.

As a condition that causes bones to become weak and brittle, Osteoporosis can cause stress on the body, eventually leading to a fracture. For example, osteoporosis-related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist, and spine.

It is estimated that more than 200 million people worldwide suffer from the condition. While osteoporosis can affect people of all ages, post-menopausal older women are at the highest risk.

The condition can be debilitating and profoundly impact your ability to do everyday tasks and activities.

Symptoms of Osteoporosis may include back pain caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra, loss of height over time, a stooped posture or a bone that breaks much more quickly than expected.

To support your bone health, so issues don’t potentially arise in future, research shows that there are diet and lifestyle solutions you can consider.

The Importance of Calcium

Calcium is the main mineral found in bone, and having enough Calcium as part of a healthy balanced diet is recommended to maintain healthy bones and potentially prevent fracture risk.

As an essential mineral, Calcium gives your bones the strength and hardness they need to cope with everyday activities.

At different stages of life, various levels of Calcium may be required. Adults should take 700mg of Calcium a day, for example.

For older people and those taking Osteoporosis medication, the daily recommendation is 1000mg of Calcium.

Vitamin D3

As an essential nutrient, Vitamin D3 can help the body to absorb Calcium and Phosphorus from the food you eat. These nutrients are also essential for people with osteoporosis.

Studies show that taking Calcium and Vitamin D3 together can help with other disorders that cause weak bones. When Vitamin D3 levels are low, it could increase your risk of osteoporosis and broken bones.

Our bodies cannot make Vitamin D3 alone, so we need to get it by exposing our skin to the sunshine. However, many of us cannot get enough Vitamin D3 as we do not always see the sun, so taking a Vitamin D3 supplement is recommended. Vitamin D3 is best combined with Vitamin K2 (MK-7), as this activates the protein osteocalcin, which integrates into bone. Without Vitamin D3 and K2, Calcium cannot do its job effectively.

We recommend Vitamin D3 & K2 Sublingual Spray from our sponsor Good Health Naturally, as this combines the best of Vitamin D3 with the benefits of Vitamin K2 to help to ensure the calcium is absorbed quickly, reaching the bone mass while preventing arterial calcification.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays a powerful role in the healthy ageing process. Vitamin C supports healthy bones, skin, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels as an antioxidant. It also has a powerful role in stimulating collagen production (and bones as they are made of collagen), so it can support the bone healing process.

We recommend PureC™ Liposomal Vitamin C with Quercetin from Good Health Naturally as it can provide fast-acting anti-inflammatory support to boost immune function, along with helping to maintain healthy bones, cartilage and connective tissues. It’s also needed to protect against stress and injury.


A recent study reveals that Curcumin may help build and repair bone mass in the elderly. [1] The active compound in turmeric, called Curcumin, is a phytochemical and effective antioxidant that is understood to inhibit osteoclastogenesis and induce apoptosis or programmed cell death of osteoclasts. These cells break down bone tissue, a function involved in maintaining, repairing and remodelling the bones of the vertebral skeleton.

Krill Oil

As a super-rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, these can help to reduce inflammation and may improve arthritis and joint pain, which often result from inflammation. Studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids can preserve bone density and reduce severe chronic inflammation that contributes to bone or joint pain.


Research shows that people with higher intakes of Magnesium have a higher bone mineral density, which is essential in reducing the risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis. [3] One short-term study found 290mg/day of elemental magnesium for 30 days in 20 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis suppressed bone turnover compared with a placebo, suggesting that bone loss decreased.


For good bone health, ensuring you get enough Iodine is essential. This important mineral plays a vital role in thyroid health and helps to support hormone balance and bone health.
