One of the defining benchmarks of the aging process is the progressive movement of calcium and other minerals out of the bone (demineralization) and into the soft tissues of the body (calcification). Before we can understand the link between weak bones and aging, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, calcification, hormonal imbalances and a host of other ailments, we need to first understand the critical roles our bones play in our health.
Contrary to popular belief, most Americans with bone loss do not have diets that are grossly deficient in calcium. What they do have is impaired calcium absorption due in large part to magnesium deficiency. The National Osteoporosis Foundation's calls osteoporosis a "major public health threat for an estimated 44 million Americans or 55 percent of the people 50 years of age or older." It is a "silent disease" that progresses without any outward sign until a sufferer has a fracture. The problem is growing exponentially as the baby boomer generation enters its golden years. The good news is that osteoporosis is absolutely preventable and to some extent reversible through proper diet, activity, and proper supplementation.
