All women should understand this term “OSTEOPROSIS”. Osteoporosis is a silent disease because of zero symptoms. It may come to your attention until a fracture happens even after a minor injury. Fractures occur at the spine, wrist and hip. Osteoporosis affects women of middle or later years most.
What exactly this disease is???
It mostly occur when bones lose Calcium more quickly than the body can replace them. They become less dense , and lose its strength so break more easily. Thou losing bones is a normal ageing problem but some people lead to Osteoporosis and an increased risk of fractures. Normal bones are composed of Protein, Collagen and Calcium , which give strength to our bones but in Osteoporosis bones are like pores which are compressible and fragile.
Women start to lose bone density after 35 years. Balance diet and adequate intake of Calcium in a form of milk is a vital step to maintain healthy and strong bones. If there is not enough calcium in your blood your body will take it from bones and making sure you have enough calcium in your diet is an important way to protect your bones from OSTEOPOROSIS.
For Nourishing bones we need Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin D and Phosphorous. Foods rich in calcium are especially necessary for stronger bones. Thou you can get calcium from dark green leafy vegetables, fish, broccoli, cheese, yogurt but drinking milk daily is very important for women of all age groups.
