Did you know?

One in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over, worldwide, will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. That?s not all, according to the studies conducted among Indian women across the country, it is estimated that 46 million among the 230 million Indians expected to be over the age of 50 years women with osteoporosis.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition in which your bones become weak and brittle. Bone is a living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced with new bone cells in normal condition. But in osteoporotic patients, new bone creation is less compared to old bone removal causing the bone mineral density and bone mass to decrease.?

calcium supplements for women? ? ?What Causes Osteoporosis?

The most common causes of osteoporosis in women include Estrogen Deficiencies typically during menopause & Calcium Deficiencies. Calcium is the major component of the bone, where it is present at more than 99% as calcium-phosphate complexes, and provides the skeleton strength and structure. Hence, our body requires enough calcium to keep our bones dense and strong.

Role of Calcium & Vitamin D in Bone Health Management

Our body needs vitamins for bones every day, it needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones and to carry out many important functions. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body which plays an important role in blood clotting, helping muscles to contract, and regulating normal heart rhythms and nerve functions. The recommended daily allowance for Calcium is 1000mg/d for both men & women.?

Good sources of calcium include-
  • Low-fat dairy products

  • Dark green leafy vegetables

  • Canned salmon or sardines with bones

  • Soy products, such as tofu

  • Calcium-fortified cereals

  • Orange juice, banana, ragi, etc.

But it gets difficult to meet the daily calcium requirement, hence taking calcium supplements for women and men helps to meet the daily needs of our body.

Only taking Calcium is not enough, adding Vitamin D is essential too, as it helps our body absorb calcium. Hence, Vitamin D is equally important for bone health management. Sunlight is actually the main source of vitamin D for many people.

But skin pigmentation, i.e., melanin, absorbs the UV Rays that initiates the vitamin D synthesis, and hence there is a decrease in vitamin D that is made for a given exposure compared to brown to dark color pigmented skin. Vitamin D deficiency prevails in epidemic proportions all over the Indian subcontinent, with a prevalence of 70%?100% in the general population.

Dietary sources of vitamin D include cod liver oil, trout, and salmon. Many types of milk and cereal have been fortified with vitamin D. But it becomes difficult to fulfill the daily Vitamin D requirement, hence calcium supplements for women and men with Vitamin D work the best.

Along with nutritional supplements, exercise too can help you build strong bones and slow bone loss.
