Is it true that animal protein is one of the major reasons for osteoporosis? If yes what can be done for this? Only limiting the animal protein is the option ?

In one study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers followed more than 1,000 women. The research taken for seven years, women consuming 4 times animal protein as vegetable protein were more vulnerable to fractures... (more)

I'm 20, but I have been researching Vitamin K2 and it seems to be the holy grail or missing ingredient for calcium use correctly in the body :) I'll link you up! http://chriskresser.com/vitamin-k2-the-missing-nutrient

I like a lot of what the paleo movement reccomends but I think its too early to conclude that saturated fat is some miracle superfood when there are too many conflicting studies for any one to reccomend we start eating these fats with reckless... (more)

Ok, so I've evaluated this theory before and found a bunch of studies confirming that meat protein is definitely not bad for your bones. Basically, meat protein increases the calcium lost in urine, but it also increases the calcium absorbed in... (more)

I answered the question on osteoporosis that was posted recently and realised I'm not sure if I'm taking the right combo of vitamins, given I have osteoporosis myself. K2 and D3 are fine, I take those, but I also take 600 or 800mg of magnesium... (more)

Your diet sounds great. Personally, I would drop the FCLO and eat 3-4 oz of liver/week for A and take a separate D supplement. Carlson's makes a good one that is CLO and lanolin-derived. Solar D Gems. I think iHerb ships to the... (more)

Hi guys, My dad is in his early fifties, overweight by 30-50 lbs and has poor bone density, and when I've gotten him to eat more paleo for extended periods, he hasn't lost the weight he was expecting to (he's been an on/off Atkins guy for years) ... (more)

Calcium needs magnesium to work properly. If you are eating a diet low in magnesium, all the milk in the world won't help you maintain and build new bone growth. Our requirements for calcium are lower than the average person, mostly due to... (more)
