Osteoporosis is a disease in which bone density and quality are reduced, which leads to a weakening of the skeleton and increases the risk of fractures. The amount of calcium that normally ensures the strength of bones and bone tissue, which enables the supporting function of bones, decreases. Such fragile and porous bones are more sensitive to various physical stresses (blows, falls). Osteoporosis is one of the main causes of serious disability in older people.

Osteoporosis, a silent epidemic, is a global problem. About 1.6 million hip fractures occur each year worldwide. According to the latest research, the number of people diagnosed with osteoporosis will double in the next 50 years, due to the aging of the world population and the influence of various factors, among which the way of life occupies a significant place.

The problem with this disease is that it usually goes without symptoms, until the moment when the most serious consequences occur, that is, fractures. Loss of height, stooping and back pain are most often attributed to other reasons or simply to aging. A decrease in bone density is accompanied by an increased risk of fracture, often after minimal trauma. Its inevitable companion is a high frequency of fractures of the vertebral bodies and neck of the femur with great suffering and disability.

Prevention and treatment

The most modern methods of treating osteoporosis include the use of new drugs – bisphosphonates and others. The most important way to prevent osteoporosis is prevention. Sufficient intake of vitamin D3 together with vitamin K2 is a very important factor in timely protection. Vitamin D3 and K2 with the addition of inulin represents the optimal combination of nutrients for proper mineralization of bones and preservation of bone integrity
system that simultaneously protects the joints from the harmful effects of calcium.

INULIN improves the bioavailability and balance of minerals. Fermentation of inulin leads to acidification of the contents of the columns, which results in an increase in the concentration of ionized minerals, especially calcium and magnesium.

Exercise can help build strong bones and slow bone loss.
