Help keep your bones healthy with Coral Complete
Your bones are the support system of your body, providing structure and protection for your internal organs, and anchors for your muscles. Additionally, bones store calcium, a mineral that is essential for building and maintaining strong bones.
Think of your bones in terms of a bank account. As you grow and develop, your bones are continuously changing with new bone being synthesized at a faster rate than old bone is being broken down and removed. This process, known as “bone remodeling”, continues throughout your life, but, after age 34, the rate of bone resorption begins to outpace the rate of bone formation. The result is a loss of bone mass as you age.
Some people have more “savings” accrued in their bone bank due to factors such as genetics, eating a healthy diet, and establishing a regular routine of exercise. Avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol use as well as continuing to get the RDA of calcium, vitamin D and other essential vitamins and minerals, can help to reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, a weakening and thinning of your bones which can result in an increased risk of bone fractures.
Minerals that are critical for your bone health
Approximately 70% of your bones, by weight, are made from minerals. The two most important of those are calcium and magnesium. Calcium is the primary mineral in your bones and is the main contributor to creating and maintaining strong bones and bone structure. Good sources of calcium are dairy products, green leafy vegetables, or dietary supplements.
Magnesium is also necessary for bone structure and strength, but also plays an important role in protecting bone density by directing calcium to your bones and away from blood and tissues where it could contribute to atherosclerosis. Sources of magnesium include dark green vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and soy products, to name a few.
Vitamin D is also an essential ingredient to preventing or slowing bone loss. Vitamin D works by augmenting the body’s ability to absorb calcium. Good sources of vitamin D are oily fish such as tuna and sardines, egg yolks, and fortified foods such as milk, juices, and cereals. Getting 10-15 minutes of exposure to sunlight several times a week also causes the body to produce vitamin D.
