Their Own Bodies Target Women

What do you think of when you hear the   Gluco Neuro  word osteoporosis? Perhaps an old, grey-haired woman slowly walking along with a walker stooped over with difficulty maintaining balance and subject to a hip-fracturing fall at any moment? Or, perhaps, you may see it as an inevitable disease that is part of growing old? Well, if so, this is not entirely true.

Yes, osteoporosis has become a disease that is almost synonymous with aging, being female and with insufficient vitamins to keep the bones healthy. But the actual disease process starts many years in advance. And, the disease also occurs in men. Today, we have the knowledge and tools, to prevent the onset of this life robbing disease, if we start in time.

What are the facts regarding this illness and how can we avoid it? Please consider the following information.Facts about OsteoporosisAs stated previously, osteoporosis is a disease that can be prevented. But due to dietary and lifestyle deficiencies, many people think that is an inevitable part of growing old. According to an Australian study, it is predicted that by the year 2020, one of three hospital beds will be occupied by women with fractures. That is really disturbing since we have resources available to change those stats.

But, what exactly is the disease? Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mass and loss of bone that can lead to fragile, breaking bones. Also, insufficient intake of essential nutrients and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin D and phosphate, contribute to the disease. Calcium is stored in the bone where it can be used by the body as needed. If the dietary intake of calcium is insufficient, bones become weak and break. (This can develop over a period of years). So, basically, osteoporosis occurs then there is an imbalance between new bone formation, essential minerals and the resorption of old bones.
