One break. One crack. One fracture. That’s all it takes to change your life in a heartbeat.
And some breaks in particular? Well, we don’t even want to THINK about what could happen.
But this isn’t something we can afford to ignore. And we have to do a whole lot more than just think about those dangerous bone breaks. We have to ACT to make sure they don’t happen to us.
It’s a cautionary tale we’ve all heard… and told… countless times as we’ve gotten older. How a broken hip was the trigger for a downward slide in someone we care about. How that one unfortunate fracture was the so-called beginning of the end.
For many folks, a broken hip bone steals away both your joy and your independence. But in the worst cases, it can even take your life.
The statistics are frightening…
- 30 percent of folks who break a hip die within a year.
- 25 percent of hip fracture victims need long-term care.
- 50 percent of people with a broken hip need permanent assistance.
But don’t worry, I’m not here to bum you out. There’s enough of THAT going around right now as it is. I’m here with a SOLUTION, instead. And I don’t mean those drugs that have caused so much bad news.
If you missed THAT shocker, take a deep breath and then take a look at my free report on bone drugs that can CAUSE breaks to catch up.
But now for the good news. There are safe and proven supplements that can help rebuild your aging bones and keep them “strong as steel” as the years pass.
Why bone gets weaker as you get older
As you get older, your body starts to struggle to rebuild bone. Over time, your skeleton becomes weaker and more prone to snapping.
Many doctors will prescribe bone meds to combat the problem. But these drugs have a seldom-discussed dark side. They can actually backfire and CAUSE breaks in the very bones they were supposed to protect.
But you have another option, as one recent study confirms a very simple combo solution can deliver some major bone-building results.
According to researchers, a combination of ordinary vitamin D and the essential mineral calcium could cut your risk of all bone breaks by a healthy six percent. Even better, that same dynamic duo can slash your risk for a dreaded hip break by an impressive 16 percent.
Basic combo slashes your risk of a broken hip
But the study finds you can’t just take one or the other. You need both the D and the calcium because each depends on the other to work correctly.
So far, so good. But this study doesn’t go quite far enough. Because even when taken together, these two are only part of the picture when it comes to bone health.
Most vitamin D in your body is essentially stuck in the “off” position. It might be there. But it’s not doing much.
You also need magnesium to flip the “on” switch and convert it into the active form. But some 80 percent of all seniors fall short on this vital mineral.
Make sure you aren’t one of them. Oysters, red meat, and poultry are good sources of zinc. And you can ask your doc about taking a supplement.
And while you’re adding supplements, consider vitamin K too. Vitamin K can help push calcium out of the blood – where it can stick to artery walls in clumps – and into bone, where it belongs.
Just be sure to speak to a doctor BEFORE you add any new supplements to your routine. Some vitamins and minerals can interfere with medications you’re already taking. For example, vitamin K doesn’t mix well with some blood thinners.
