New Study Shows NSAIDs Increase Bone Fracture Risk By Up to 500%

It’s a well-known fact that NSAIDs like ibuprofen can cause serious health issues like gastrointestinal bleeding. They even increase your risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.

In other words, they could kill you! (Even when taken as directed.)

But now there’s a troubling new study that shows NSAIDs also increase your risk of bone fractures.1

The latest study to throw shade on NSAIDs was published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

Researchers looked at active-duty soldiers who’d been diagnosed with a stress fracture. They compared those who’d been prescribed NSAIDs prior to their injury to those who hadn’t.

They found that taking an NSAID nearly tripled their risk of developing a stress fracture.2

And that risk shot up during basic training, a period when the soldiers were more physically active. The chances of developing a stress fracture during basic training for those taking NSAIDs increased more than 5-fold!

But NSAIDs not just bad for soldiers’ bones — they’re bad for YOUR bones, too!

What do the soldiers’ bones have to do with your bones?

Well, think of it like this…

These are young, healthy, physically fit men and women in their late teens and early 20s…

Their bodies are stronger now than at any other point in their lives… but they are getting fractures after taking NSAIDs to manage their chronic pain!

That’s NOT a good sign for the rest of us, who maybe aren’t as physically strong and fit as we once were.

And if you’re over 65…

It could be a matter of life and death

You see, starting at around age 50, studies show your bones become more brittle.

In fact, 1 out of every 2 women and 1 out of every 5 men over the age of 50 will eventually break a bone.

And what’s especially scary, is suffering a fracture when you’re over 65 could kill you!

According to the National Council on Aging, 1 in every 4 Americans over 65 falls each year.

And 1 in every 5 falls results in a traumatic injury, such as a broken bone…

And every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall!

Here’s the kicker… 90% of all NSAID prescriptions go to patients over the age of 65. And 7 in 10 Americans over 65 use NSAIDs every single day.

Why on earth would you want to take something that could put you at greater risk of a bone fracture, gastrointestinal bleeding AND a heart attack?

The answer is probably because you’re in pain. I get it. As we get older, we are more likely to suffer aches and pains — and some people live in constant, chronic pain.

It’s really not fair, is it?

Well-meaning doctors keep pushing these pain meds to “help” you, but all you’re really doing is trading one set of problems for another.

If you’re one of those people currently using NSAIDs to manage pain, I understand. I know first-hand what it’s like to live with chronic pain — and why sometimes you may be willing to overlook the potential side effects just to get a little relief.

It’s easy to convince yourself that those scary side effects are something that will happen to someone else … until they happen to you.

Fortunately, there’s a better, safer and more effective pain killer.

It’s a common kitchen spice called…

The “Holy Powder” Painkiller

Beats NSAIDs for pain and protects your bones

It’s name?


Maybe you’ve heard about turmeric. It’s been trending all over social media.

There’s a lot of hype, but this is one ancient healing remedy that actually lives up to its reputation.

How does turmeric work?

Well, it all starts with inflammation.

You see, inflammation is at the center of all pain conditions. And the root of the turmeric plant has a compound called curcumin that’s one of the most potent anti-inflammatories in the world.

Curcumin kills your pain by “shutting down” a pain molecule in your body called NF-kB. Shutting down this molecule “switches off” your body’s inflammation genes.

The result?

You’re able to golf, garden, and play with your grandkids… pain-free.

And since turmeric is all-natural, it doesn’t carry the same health risks as NSAIDs like ibuprofen or aspirin.

In fact, a recent study conducted by the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center in New York found that turmeric was safer and more precise than aspirin at stopping inflammation.3

And 2016 meta-analysis of multiple studies showed it works as well — or better — than NSAIDs for easing pain.4

But unlike NSAIDs, turmeric extract won’t put your bone health in jeopardy.

In fact, recent research shows….

Turmeric SAVES Your Bones

In a lab study of rats published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists induced menopause in female rats — a condition marked by an increase in bone loss.

Some of the rats were given an enriched turmeric extract — and researchers found that the extract prevented up to 50 percent of bone loss. It also preserved bone structure and connectivity.5

whopping 7% over a 6 month period.6 And the study participants were all over the age of 70!

Now, getting turmeric in your diet is one of the best things you can do for your health… but it’s tough to eat enough turmeric to obtain all of the benefits.

And there are a lot of turmeric and curcumin supplements out there, and not all of them are good.

You see, curcumin is not easily absorbed by your body by itself. It has to be combined with other ingredients to ensure you’re getting the most benefit from it.
