A Mineral that will help you to treat your Osteoporosis Naturally!

It is estimated that in India, approximately 20% of

the women above the age of 50yrs- that is,

more than 4.6 crore women are suffering from osteoporosis….

As you are educated, you are aware about the

importance of calcium for your bone’s health. In

our previous blog we have already discussed about

the good vegetarian sources of calcium which are

easily available in India. (& it is NOT MILK!)

Click here to know about factors that enhance your bone calcium and

factors that deplete calcium from your body.

Probably, you are also aware about the importance of

vitamin-D for your bone’s health.

But maybe you are not aware about the

mineral that helps your vitamin-D to work properly. That

mineral is-Boron. Boron increases the half-life of

your vitamin-D. In simple words, it increases the

time for which your vitamin-D will work in

your body to make your bone stronger. And, along

with magnesium it also helps to convert vitamin D

into usable form. Not only that, but

Boron also extends the half-life of

Oestrogen (female hormone). If you are having

menopause, Boron will help your oestrogen hormone to

remain active for long period of time. Thus,

reducing your menopausal symptom. So, you get

double benefit from boron during your

menopausal period, as osteoporosis is also

due to decrease in oestrogen level. Boron will help you

in both- it will reduce your menopausal symptoms and

also it will help you to keep your bone stronger.

Good natural vegetarian sources of boron are:

  • Apple
  • Grapes
  • Raisins
  • Peanuts

Boron is not only for women aged 50 plus.

It is equally good for males & kids

Why to take supplements, when your can get it from natural sources?

That’s all for today.

See you next Tuesday with another Tuesday Tip.

Till then…..

Take care.
