Can You Reduce Your Osteoporosis Risk With This Popular Food?

Do you want to avoid osteoporosis?

Degenerative bone disease like osteoporosis can be devastating. These conditions often begin a cascade of debilitating conditions and lowered quality of life.

That is why it is so important for us to maintain our bone health by doing everything we can to prevent degenerative bone diseases.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the most common form of degenerative bone disease. The occurrence of this condition has been precipitously rising in developed areas of the world with the adoption of more processed carbohydrate-based diets.

Osteoporosis is characterized by the slow degradation of bone tissue.

There are two main types of bone cells. Osteoclasts break down old damaged bone and osteoblasts build up new healthy bone.

When osteoclast activity overtakes osteoblast activity you have a degenerative bone disease.

Luckily, we know that by providing the body with certain essential nutrients, we can up-regulate osteoblast activity so new bone is being built at a rate the matched the degradation caused by the osteoclasts.

Researchers are constantly looking for what foods and nutrients can help build stronger and healthier bones.

Yogurt and Bone Health

Recent research out of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland has found that the popular health food yogurt shows marked benefit in improving the bone health of Irish adults.

This study is actually considered to be one of the largest observational studies of dairy intake and bone and health ever conducted.

The researchers found that higher hip bone density and a significantly reduced risk of osteoporosis in older populations was associated with an increased yogurt consumption.

The Research

The researchers examined 763 men and 1,057 women who underwent a bone-mineral-density (BMD) assessment. They also looked at 1,290 men and 2,624 women who had their physical function measured. The participants' amount of yogurt consumption was determined by a questionnaire and categorized as never, 2-3 times per week and more than one serving per day.

Yogurt intake was adjusted for other factors including the consumption of other dairy products, meat, fish, smoking and alcohol and other traditional risk factors that affect bone health.

Conclusion

The lead author of the study Dr. Eamon Laird commented, "Yogurt is a rich source of different bone promoting nutrients and thus our findings in some ways are not surprising. The data suggest that improving yogurt intakes could be a strategy for maintaining bone health but it needs verification through future research as it is observational."

Dr. Miriam Casey, senior investigator of this study and Consultant Physician at St James's Hospital Dublin added, "The results demonstrate a significant association of bone health and frailty with a relatively simple and cheap food product. What is now needed is verification of these observations from randomized controlled trials as we still don't understand the exact mechanisms which could be due to the benefits of micro-biota or the macro and micro nutrient composition of the yogurt."

This study is further evidence to confirm that dairy products contain valuable nutrients for the maintenance of bone health. When sourcing yogurt look for products with no added sugar. Grass-fed and full-fat yogurt has also been shown to have more nutrition.

Food is Not Enough

While it certainly is very important to eat a bone building diet, it can actually be really hard to make sure you get all of the right nutrients in the right ratios from just food alone.

This is why supplementation with key nutrients is so important for bone health.
