How to increase bone density regardless of age.
We rarely worry about our bone density, that is, until we receive a wake-up call, in the form of an accident or injury. Learn here how to increase bone density before your fragility causes a fall or you experience a fracture.Â We have peptide products that have been shown to increase bone density very effectively and safely.
What is bone density?
Our bones are alive. Bone is a living, growing tissue and it is affected by our nutrition, lifestyle habits and theÂ ageing process. Bone density is defined as the mass of mineral content per volume of bone. Like all other parts of the body, bones are in a constant state of breaking down the old and reconstructing into the new. Healthy bone density requires that we take preventative action early on, as well as realise what factors contribute to the loss of bone mass.
Issues that arise from low bone density
The inability to recover from a fall or bone fracture
Experiencing a serious fall, especially once we enter midlife and into our old age is one reason for our attention to shift towards prevention of bone degeneration and disease. The freedom one loses when mobility is lost, creates a downward spiral which repeats itself each time, resulting in a loss of productivity, self-maintenance and independence.
In the elderly this may lead to the ultimate loss, being one of premature death. Falls become more prevalent as one ages and the downtime provided by a bone fracture or worse, (multiple injuries), can often lead to long periods of inactivity.
Loss of muscle mass (Sarcopenia)
Muscle mass is lost quickly due to inactivity, and coinciding hormonal deficits and bone tissue may never fully recover without adequate supplementation.
With mobility at a standstill, those recovering from bone fractures often find their weight increasing due to the inability to burn off excess calories. It is advisable for those in recovery to keep this in mind and make healthy food choices.
Too much additional weight puts unnecessary pressure on the bones when it comes time to resume physical exercise. This can increase the likelihood of sustaining further injury.
Osteoporosis is a condition resulting in bone fragility. It develops when bones lose essential minerals such as calcium at a rate faster than the body can replace them. This deficiency results in a loss of bone thickness, which is also referred to as bone mass or density. Bones thereby become more porous and less dense, mainly increasing the risk of bone fracture.
Causes of Low Bone Density
- Family History
- Poor Nutrition
- Eating Disorders
- Untreated Celiac Disease
- Inadequate Physical Activity
- Overactive Thyroid Gland
- Carbonated Beverages
- Ageing â€“ Menopause and Andropause
Our bodies create a brand new skeleton approximately every 10 years!
How to find out whether you have healthy bone density?
Bone density measurement is the methodology by which the medical industry can identify one’s risk of developing osteoporosis or sustaining an injury resulting in a bone fracture. This procedure of bone density measurement is called densitometry, and it will require a visit to the radiologist. After a patient undergoes the bone mineral density scan, what is received is a T-score. Your T-score is your bone density, and it is compared with what levels of bone density are expected in a healthy young adult of your gender.
Tips on how toÂ improve boneÂ mass
Nutrition is one major influence on the maintenance of our bone health.
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin K
Limit Caffeine and Alcohol
Caffeine does not benefit our bones. Too much has the propensity to interfere with the body and its ability to absorb calcium. One study found that the consumption of more than 2 cups per day accelerated bone loss in those studied, who also didnâ€™t get enough calcium in their diet, nor did they supplement to reach adequate levels.
Heavy alcohol use has been shown to cause bone loss. Without a doubt. This is because it interferes with Vitamin D as it makes attempts to do its job.
As the saying goes â€śeverything in moderationâ€ť. This should be considered when one desires another drink. Moderation means one drink only for women daily, and for men, moderation means 2.
If you have the desire to keep those bones strong and keep yourself mobile into your old age, this advice is one to follow through with.
Resistance training, muscle strengthening and weight-bearing exercises areÂ the most effective for bone health. Weight-bearing exercise is that which requires you to bear your own body weight.
This really should be a no brainer. There are plenty of studies that show how smoking prevents the body from efficiently absorbing calcium. Because of this, bone mass is decreased and continues as such.SARMS (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators) for Increases in Bone Density
In the 1940â€™s SARMs were discovered after researchers made modifications to the chemical structure of the testosterone molecule.
How SARMS Peptide Promotes Healthy Bone DensityÂ
- Increases bone remodelling
The difference between bone turnover and bone remodelling is that bone remodelling is an essential process that occurs throughout the skeleton, which is needed for calcium homeostasis. Bone remodelling also preserves the integrity of the skeletal structure.
- Reduces bone turnover
Bone turnover is the total volume of bone that gets reabsorbed and produced over a period. Bone turnover is often estimated by measuring relevant bone biomarkers.
- Prevents and treats osteoporosis
Considered a viable treatment in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
- Efficient and Safe
Has been studied since the 1990s â€“ No evidence recorded of its potential for harm.
- SARMS are the future of anabolic therapy
Experts are of the belief these SARMS are the future of anabolic therapy and should, in due time replace the use of steroids due to their effectiveness and safety.
Ostarine (SARMS Forte) â€“ The most anabolic of all SARMS.
Sarms Forte, also known as Ostarine, belongs to the category of SARMS (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators). Ostarine is considered the most anabolic of all of the SARMs currently available.
Studies have also investigated its potential to prevent/treat other conditions, sarcopenia which is the loss of muscle mass and as a testosterone replacement therapy. Ostarine binds with and activates the androgen receptors in the human body, to promote effects such as muscle gain, anti-catabolism, and strength-gains.
Ostarine avoids androgen receptors in other areas of the body that tend to initiate adverse side effects such as in the prostate and scalp. In January of 2008, the World Anti-Doping Agency developed blood tests to detect the presence of Ostarine in athletes.
