Bone is living,
growing tissue. Throughout life our bodies are breaking down old bone and rebuilding new bone in a continuous cycle.
progressively increase in density until a maximum level is reached,
usually around age 30.
We gain bone by
building more than we lose. After about age 35, this balance is
typically reversed, with bone loss
occurring at a slightly faster rate than it can be replaced, which
causes bones to slowly decrease in density and to become more brittle.
contain minerals such as calcium and phosphorus, which make them hard
and dense. To maintain bone density, the body requires an adequate
supply of calcium, along with proper amounts of several hormones, such as parathyroid hormone, growth
hormone, calcitonin, estrogen in women, and testosterone in men.
menopause and the loss of estrogen, bones' inner mesh becomes
increasingly thinner, weaker and more brittle. But it is only when
bone loss is excessive, as can be measured by a bone density scan, for
example, that a person would be diagnosed with osteoporosis.
The most common problem
associated with osteoporosis is bone fractures. The bones of the wrist, spine and hip are the most likely to break. Hip fractures
are the most serious as they can lead to longer-term hospitalization,
permanent disability and loss of independence.
Unfortunately, after one osteoporotic fracture, others are more
likely to follow. Besides that, fractures tend
to heal slowly in those who suffer with osteoporosis.

is the building block of bones. In the past, people have long relied on
inorganic calcium sources like calcium carbonate and calcium citrate.
However there are many problems with traditional
calcium supplements: their calcium absorption rates are
usually too low to be of any use, and they can promote the formation of kidney
stones or stones in other organs.
from a recent technological breakthrough, EZorb
Calcium has set a new record with its 92% calcium absorption
rate, with no side effects.
typically recommend prescription medications
for osteoporosis treatment, including Fosamax, Actonel, and Evista, all
notorious for countless side effects.
These drugs are designed to "increase" bone density by retaining dead bone
mass. They kill osteoclasts, the cells that are responsible for natural bone
resorption. Treated with those drugs, limited space within
the bones is taken up by dead or nearly dead bone mass, preventing
new bone mass from being created. As a result,
bones become more fragile and more vulnerable to fracture.
be a surprise to see modest increase in density from bone scans performed
on those treated with these drugs, who often have to be treated against
the associated side effects as well. Of course all the
useless dead bone mass is counted, which promotes a false
sense of security, preventing patients from
seeking alternative treatments until it's too late. Denser
bones are not necessarily better bones.
the other hand, having enough calcium supply is not the end of the
story. Calcium doesn't become bones automatically. It has to be
assimilated. EZorb Calcium increases bone density by stimulating
osteoblast (bone-forming cells) activities and by promoting
collagen production. As a result, new cells are created to
replace the old ones, and the increased supply of collagen makes bones
stronger and more flexible. Thousands of people with osteoporosis have
reported significant bone density increase after taking EZorb 6 months to a year.
