Bone and joint

If you're 30+, you're losing bone.

Both men and women will begin to lose 0.5-1% of their bone density or degree of bone mineralization per year starting around age 30. In women, the rate of loss will spike to 2-3% per year for the first 3-15 years following menopause.

 

The critical need for calcium

Calcium is a critical mineral that is important not only for bone health, but one that also aids muscle and nerve function, blood pressure regulation, blood clotting, cellular health, and the release of certain hormones. Calcium is even required for a normal heartbeat!

 

Not surprisingly, given this vital role, the body maintains a constant level of calcium in the bloodstream. To support this constant level, our bones also act as a storage bank for calcium. If blood calcium levels are low due to dietary intake, calcium is taken from our bones and used by the body - which over time can affect bone density.

 

The body also loses calcium through sweat, urine, cut hair and nails, so replacing this lost calcium on a daily basis is essential to prevent further removal of calcium from the bones.

 

Maintaining joint health is a daily focus for tens of millions of people around the world. So it's no wonder joint health is an ongoing and ever-increasing area of focus for the scientific and medical communities. Joint health is a complex issue, but we should all recognize one simple truth that a healthy inflammation response is required to maintain normal joint health.

 

As we age, cartilage is lost, and this process predisposes the bones that make up the joints to change. In an attempt to address the change, immune cells mount a cellular response that involves inflammation. The inflammation response function in the joints results from the activation of inflammatory enzymes, namely cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX). Numerous other factors can trigger these enzymes, including normal aging, oxidative free radicals, and being overweight.
