If a calcium deficiency was the cause of osteoporosis, then all you would need to do is take calcium supplements.
This is clearly not the solution.
One of the biggest myths surrounding osteoporosis is that it is caused by a calcium deficiency.
However, bones are made up of dozens of minerals…just one of which is calcium. Just like you can’t make a cake with just flour, bones need ALL of these minerals – in the right proportions – to stay strong and shatter free.
And while many people turn to drugs, this can actually make osteoporosis worse by leeching out vital minerals you need for optimum bones health.
True Causes of Osteoporosis
Bones are a critical storehouse for at least twelve minerals necessary for overall health.
When we fuel the body with the nutrients and minerals it needs, our bones have an ample supply of minerals to keep up with the body’s needs. Almost like a checking account, as long as we’re depositing enough minerals to keep up with what we spend, all remains well.
However, deficiencies in our modern diet force our bones to bear the weight of our nutritional problems. Rather than keeping an even flow of input and output, our bones give more minerals to the body’s functions than they are able to accumulate.
Over time, this depletes the bones of their minerals—just like an overdrawn checking account.
