Diet for osteoporosis

Osteoporosis - a disease which largely affects women, especially in menopause, when hormonal changes accelerate bone loss.

How can help the body avoid the problems associated with osteoporosis?

In order to reduce stress on the joints, if you are overweight, it is recommended to decrease.But deciding to go on a diet, you must remember that rapid weight loss in this case is unacceptable, as this "lose weight" and the bones (bone tissue).

to supply the body a sufficient amount of calcium needed for building bones and strengthening them, doctors recommend that women consume a lot of calcium-rich foods such as low-fat milk (if you are allergic to milk, choose dairy products), low-fat yogurt, broccoli,cauliflower, salmon, green leafy vegetables.

Sesame oil can also be effectively used for the prevention of osteoporosis due to its high content of calcium and phosphorus, which are also very well absorbed by the body.1 teaspoon sesame oil contains a daily rate of calcium.

American experts, for example, re

commend that women taking hormone replacement drugs consume 1,000 mg of calcium daily and postmenopausal women who are not treated with estrogen - 1500 mg of calcium per day.(In a glass of skim milk provides 300 mg of calcium).

As most women get food only half or a third of the calcium they need, some doctors recommend to eliminate the difference by using calcium supplements (calcium citrate or calcium gluconate are effective in reducing bone loss).

Magnesium deficiency also can cause osteoporosis as magnesium participates in the process of assimilation of calcium and its retention in the bone.
If you absorb a lot of calcium, but the body are deficient in magnesium, calcium, rather than to perform a positive role, is deposited in vital organs.

Vitamin B6, in turn, delivers the magnesium in the cell and improves its digestibility.
order to assimilate calcium, the body needs vitamins A and D.

also interfere with the absorption of calcium smoking, alcohol, caffeine in large amounts, the lack of physical activity.

Besides consumption of calcium-rich foods should also be avoided, and foods high in phosphorus, which may contribute to loss of bone mass.Among the foods rich in phosphorus - red meat and soft drinks (such as Coke).The study found that followers of a vegetarian diet in old age the bones are more dense than that of meat-eaters.

To help maintain the necessary level of estrogen and avoid a sharp drop in its after menopause and thus help prevent osteoporosis, some nutritionists advise postmenopausal women to consume more foods containing plant estrogens, especially tofu (soybean curd), soy milk and other foodsfrom soybeans.

children when formed bone system, you need to get enough calcium (from dairy products or, if the child eats them are not particularly good from vitamin-mineral complexes), or have a child will lay the basis for the subsequent development of osteoporosis.
