50% of women in the Philippines are prone to suffer osteoporosis and other bone related diseases due to lack of calcium intake. For others it is because of monthly periods and pregnancy affects the percentage of calcium in the bones, same thing happen during menopause, which lessens the production of estrogen, the hormone that protects the bones. At the early age of 25, some are showing the early signs of osteoporosis that can still be prevented by proper intake of Calcium daily which is rich in Anlene product.
Recently, Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow revealed her condition at the online newsletter of GOOP and mentioned that she diagnosed with the early stages of Osteopenia, a condition wherein bone density falls below its less-than-normal range. It happened during the treatment of her severe fracture in her leg a few years ago. Those who were diagnosed with Osteopenia are women in their prime and menopausal age and there’s a chance that it will develop to Osteoporosis. In the case of the actress she was only 37. But aside to aging, other reasons for having early stages of Osteopenia or Osteoporosis includes extreme eating habit that sometimes it doesn’t include calcium rich food like milk, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, and excessive alcohol intake.
Here in the Philippines, study shows that Filipinos only consume half of their daily recommended allowance of the vital nutrient, and it is not part of eating habit to drink milk which is one of the sources of bone-building calcium that most women needed. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, 30 percent of those who develop a hip fracture never walk again, while 20 percent die in a year's time. No wonder many have dubbed it a Silent Killer. That is why to avoid Osteoporosis everyone are encourage to have regular exercises like running, walking, and lifting weights toughen our bones, as does maintaining our appropriate weight. Ensure your daily diet is rich in calcium and Vitamin D. Leafy green vegetables, dairy products like milk and cheese, tofu, and soy products are excellent sources of calcium. For better calcium absorption, get your Vitamin D from fatty fish (salmon, mackerel), fish liver oil, egg yolks, and early morning sun exposure. Women between the ages of 25 and 50 should aim for 750 mg of calcium daily; more for those who are older, pregnant or lactating. As for Vitamin D, the Recommended Daily Allowance for women aged 19 to 50 is 600 IU (international units).
