Bone & Joint Conditions – Leading Complaints Among Adults
These include complaints of: pain, lack of mobility, inflammation and injuries from sports/accidents.
Studies have shown that key vitamins and minerals, such as: Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Boron, Vitamin D and Vitamin K2, work synergistically to play a key role in bone health.
Exercise and a diet high in fish (sardines, tuna), dairy foods, nuts, tofu, eggs, green leafy vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, okra), meat and fortified bread/cereals, are good sources of calcium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin D. As these nutrients are essential for the maintenance of healthy bones, they can therefore help prevent the complaints associated with bone and joint conditions.
However, sometimes it is difficult to maintain varied and balanced diets in today’s fast, modern lifestyles. Evidence suggests that certain groups like children, pregnant women, elderly, vegetarians and athletes are more at risk of being deficient in these nutrients. This is when supplementation may be needed to provide the essential nutrients in a quick and short period of time. Those already diagnosed with osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and are pre or post-menopausal may also benefit from supplementation.
Living in a country where we hardly see sunlight, vitamin D deficiencies have become prevalent. Being a victim of this, I also have to take vitamin D supplements to maintain healthy teeth, bones and a good immune system. I have found that HealthAid Osteozin provides Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2 and Boron to provide a comprehensive support to maintain optimum bone health.
Calcium and Magnesium contribute to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function. Zinc supports the normal function of the immune system, contributes to normal DNA synthesis and the maintenance of normal bones. Boron helps prevent calcium loss and bone demineralization.
Vitamin K2 contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
All these vitamins and minerals work synergistically to provide maximum bone support.
Avoid those fractures and painful days today!
