Here’s a snapshot of some very important minerals that are the super-stars of bone, joint and ligament health. This is a great way to get the right nutrients to your body for superior bone health and overall general health.
In laboratory animals, boron deprivation can lead to poor bone development. Boron deficiency may be associated with Vitamin D deficiency. It appears that boron reduces the excretion of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous, all of which are necessary to strong bones. No dietary requirement has been set, but 4 to 5 milligrams daily is ample.
Copper is involved in collagen maturation, and this protein helps provide the “infrastructure” that holds bone together. It appears that typical intake is less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA)-and can lead to reduced bone formation-but further studies are needed.
Iron is a co-factor for the enzymes involved in collagen synthesis. In laboratory tests, low levels of iron may lead to lower bone strength. Caveat: if you’re taking calcium, don’t take iron at the same time, because some studies suggest that calcium supplements may inhibit the absorption of iron.
Two-thirds of our body’s magnesium is found in our skeletons. Magnesium is also essential to the proper functioning of nerves and muscles and all living cells. Unfortunately, many of us appear to be taking too little magnesium. Alcohol and diuretics can drain our supply, because they increase urinary excretion. Magnesium can be replaced with a 100 mg tablet or capsule daily, and its level in the blood can be measured accurately in commercial reference laboratories.
Phosphorus is another element that is essential for bone growth. 85 percent of our body’s phosphorous is incorporated in our bones as calcium phosphate. Most people probably take in enough phosphorous in their diet, although vegetarians who do not eat dairy products run the risk of developing phosphorus deficiency which can result in a serious bone disease resembling vitamin D deficiency Rickets in children or Osteomalacia in adults.
Potassium plays a vital role in maintaining bone health. Potassium is good for the formation of bones and also promotes cardiovascular health. Potassium may neutralize acids that remove calcium from the body.
Like copper, zinc in trace amounts is essential to collagen synthesis that helps provide a structural platform for bone formation. As with magnesium, excessive alcohol intake can reduce our supply.
The researchers believe that iodine deficiency impairs thyroid activity, which in turn slows bone growth and causes joints to stiffen. Iodine is not a mineral one would normally associate with decreased bone density. Iodine nourishes the Bones as well as the central nervous system.
Natural Probiotics have been found to build healthy bones in laboratory studies that could pave the way for new natural treatments for people with osteoporosis. Also can enhance bone density.
Vitamin K helps the body to absorb calcium into bones. Vitamin K can not only increase bone mineral density in osteoporotic people but also actually reduce fracture rates. Further, there is evidence in human intervention studies that vitamins K and D, a classic in bone metabolism, works synergistically on bone density. When co-administered with vitamin D. Several mechanisms are suggested by which vitamin K can modulate bone metabolism. Vitamin K also positively affects calcium balance, a key mineral in bone metabolism.
Water Soluble Selenium
Selenium is an essential trace element for humans and several findings suggest that dietary intake may be necessary for bone health. Such findings may relate to roles of Selenium in antioxidant protection, enhanced immune surveillance and modulation of cell proliferation. Keywords: antioxidant; bone health; cell proliferation.
White Soluble Sulfur
White soluble sulfur methyl-sulfonyl-methane, which is sulfur. Sulfur is an organic white sulfur powder, which comes from the ocean and is water soluble. IT IS A FOOD found in plants, meats, dairy products and vegetation. It is the third largest nutrient found in your body.
Calcium is a mineral that is important for making healthy bones. Calcium cannot be made by the body. The body gets the calcium it needs through the food you eat. If you do not get enough calcium in your diet or if your body does not absorb enough calcium from your diet, bones can weaken or not grow properly. Bone density refers to how much calcium and other types of minerals are present in a section of your bone. Bone density is highest between ages 25 – 35 and decreases after that. This can result in brittle, fragile bones that are prone to fractures, even without injury. As you age, your body still needs calcium to keep your bones dense and strong.
Severe potassium deficiency is most common in people who have absorption disorders like Crohn’s disease, kidney disease, congestive heart failure, an eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia or any illness that causes frequent diarrhea and vomiting. It is also more likely in people who sweat excessively from physical exertion or from living in a hot climate. Potassium deficiency, also known as hypokalemia, is characterized by bloating, muscle weakness, fatigue, abdominal pain, cramping and constipation. If left untreated, hypokalemia may cause paralysis and potentially fatal heart arrhythmia.
Potassium is a very important mineral for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs in the human body. It is also an electrolyte, a substance that conducts electricity in the body, along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium. Potassium is crucial to heart function and plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function. Many foods contain potassium, including all meats, some types of fish (such as salmon, cod, and flounder), and many fruits, vegetables, and legumes. Dairy products are also good sources of potassium. Having too much potassium in the blood is called hyperkalemia; having too little is known as hypokalemia. Keeping the right potassium balance in the body depends on the amount of sodium and magnesium in the blood. Too much sodium — common in Western diets that use a lot of salt — may increase the need for potassium. Diarrhea, vomiting, excessive sweating, malnutrition, malabsorption syndromes (such as Crohn’s disease) can also cause potassium deficiency, as well as use of a kind of heart medicine called loop diuretics.Most people get all of the potassium they need from a healthy diet rich in vegetables and fruits. Older people have a greater risk of hyperkalemia because their kidneys are less efficient at eliminating potassium as they age. Older people should be careful when taking medication that may affect potassium levels, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and ACE inhibitors (see section on Interactions). Whatever your age, talk to your doctor before taking potassium supplements.
Studies show a positive link between a diet rich in potassium and bone health, particularly among elderly women, suggesting that increasing consumption of foods rich in potassium may play a role in osteoporosis prevention. More research is needed to determine whether a diet high in potassium can reduce bone turnover in people.
The most important use of potassium is to treat the symptoms of hypokalemia (low potassium), which include weakness, lack of energy, muscle cramps, stomach disturbances, an irregular heartbeat, and an abnormal EKG (electrocardiogram, a test that measures heart function). Hypokalemia is usually caused by the body losing too much potassium in the urine or intestines; it’s rarely caused by a lack of potassium in the diet. Hypokalemia can be life threatening and should always be treated by a doctor.
High Blood Pressure
Some studies have linked low levels of potassium in the diet with high blood pressure. And there is some evidence that potassium supplements might cause a slight drop in blood pressure. Other studies show that increasing potassium intake reduces the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. Researchers suspect this is largely due to potassium’s blood pressure lowering effects. But not all studies agree — 2 large studies found no effect on blood pressure. It may be that taking potassium helps lower blood pressure only if you’re not getting enough of this mineral to start with. Before taking potassium or any supplement for high blood pressure, talk to your doctor.
People who get a lot of potassium in their diet have a lower risk of stroke. However, potassium supplements don’t seem to produce the same benefit.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
People with IBD (ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease) often have trouble absorbing nutrients from their intestine, and may have low levels of potassium and other important nutrients. If you have IBD, your doctor may check your potassium levels and recommend a supplement.
Good sources of potassium include bananas, citrus juices (such as orange juice), avocados, cantaloupes, tomatoes, potatoes, lima beans, flounder, salmon, cod, chicken, and other meats.
Several potassium supplements are on the market, including potassium acetate, potassium bicarbonate, potassium citrate, potassium chloride, and potassium gluconate. Supplements are available in tablets, capsules, effervescent tablets, powders, and liquids.
Potassium can also be found in multivitamins.
How to Take It
Potassium supplements, other than the small amount included in a multivitamin, should be taken only under your doctor’s supervision. Do not give potassium supplements to a child unless your doctor prescribes it.
