Taking extra calcium will ensure strong bones
Calcium is certainly essential for bone health, but by itself, it doesn't guarantee that bones will stay strong throughout life. A British Medical Journal analysis of 59 studies that follow more than 13,000 people over age 50 found that adequate calcium, from either food or
supplements, increased bone density by up to 1.8 percent in a year, however,
that wasn't enough to prevent fractures. Strong bones also require a whole-foods diet, regular exercise, and supporting nutrients.
All adults should take 1,000 - 1,200 mg of daily calcium supplements.
These amounts are recommended daily calcium totals from both food and supplements: 1,000 up to age 50 and 1,200 mg after that. Supplements should be used to make up any shortfall from your diet.
Research has identified specific ways to reduce the odds of any type of dementia. In addition, there are treatable conditions that mimic Alzheimer's and can even be misdiagnosed as the disease, as the conditions below.
1. Lyme and Other Hidden Infections
3. Undiagnosed Low Thyroid
4. Dementia-Promoting Eating Habits (Diabetes is known to increase the risk for dementia) 5. Sleep Deprivation
6. Vitamin Deficiencies
(Deficiencies of vitamins B1 and B12 are recognized as triggers of dementia symptoms.)
7. Hearing Loss
8. Physical Inactivity
9. Drug Side Effects
(Some medications can cause dementia-like symptoms)
(Dementia risk is associated with loneliness and having fewer close relationships in later life.)
