You Can Build Strong Teeth and Bones
Did you know you can strengthen your teeth and bones? They’re alive, so that means we can strengthen and regenerate this important foundation that holds up our bodies. It’s what we rely on to move, walk and chew. We need strong bones and teeth to get through of life. And it’s especially important as we age to maintain our bones and teeth.
Our bones are like a bank account. When we’re young, new “deposits” are added faster than is removed. In our 20s, “withdrawals” begin to exceed “deposits,” which can be prevented by getting enough calcium, Vitamin D and exercise. Even though our bones break down and rebuilds naturally, as we age, we need a little extra help with the rebuilding process within our bones. We can’t change the fact that our bodies age, but we can support and strengthen it.
Our teeth have enamel, the outer covering which protects the inner more fragile dentin and pulp. Enamel is over 95% mineral and it’s important in protecting us against tooth decay.It’s comprised of mostly calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a combination of calcium and phosphorus. To prevent enamel from wear and tear, adequate amounts of calcium and magnesium are needed. Dentin is important as it protects the core of our tooth, the dental pulp. Dentin, the layer underneath enamel, is made of 70% mineral, mostly calcium hydroxyapatite, 20% collagen and 10% water.
Since the enamel protects our teeth, it’s important to strengthen it with calcium and phosphorous, using bioavailable nutrients. The good news is you can strengthen brittle teeth and bones from the inside.
We created a program that helps you absorb calcium into your bones and teeth. While most people just take calcium, we include a unique product called Teeth & Bone Support II. It’s phosphorous, which is often missing when people supplement with calcium. Phosphorous is essential in building and repairing teeth and bones. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) works with phosphorus for maintenance and cellular repair.
One other essential component when building bone and teeth is Vitamin D3 and we have one of the only Vitamin D3 products on the market that include both K1 and K2, so we’ve got you covered with both K vitamins needed for your body to absorbD3! This is an emulsified liquid Vitamin D3 to increase bioavailability.
Seven Things You Can Do To Strengthen Bones Naturally:
Weight bearing exercise like walking, and resistance, such as lifting weights can help slow down bone loss or the “withdrawals” that happen when we get older.Sedentary people lose more calcium.
Don’t Smoke and Keep Alcohol Intake Low
Smoking can increase bone loss, while alcohol consumption can weaken bones, by reducing the body’s ability to make new bone. More than one drink a day for women and two drinks for men can speed up bone loss.
Remember Your “Greens and Beans”
Getting enough protein is important as it helps build bone. Some of the most healthful calcium comes from legumes and green leafy vegetables. So eating as much broccoli, collard greens, kale, mustard greens and other vegetables will help your calcium “deposits.” Spinach and Swiss chard are exceptions in that they hold onto calcium more. When it comes to the discussion about calcium, beans may not be the first thing you think of, but the humble bean is loaded with calcium. That includes tofu and chickpeas, which also have magnesium, a mineral the body needs with calcium to build bone.
Get Vitamin D from the Sun
Since Vitamin D helps control your body’s usage of calcium, about 15 to 20 minutes a day in the sun produces the Vitamin D you need. But it’s always best to take a Vitamin D supplement with Vitamin K to ensure absorption.
Reduce Excess Sodium Intake
Since calcium in bones can dissolve into the bloodstream and pass through the kidneys into your urine, excess salt in your food can increase calcium loss through the kidneys. Reducing excess salt intake, such as from canned foods and salty snacks, can help your bones hold onto calcium better.
Milk Isn’t Always the Answer
We’ve always been told to drink milk for healthy bones. But in a 12-year study at Harvard with 78,000 women, those who drank milk three times a day broke more bones than women who rarely drank milk. There was a similar study in Australia for both men and women, which showed those with the highest consumption of dairy had double the risk of hip fractures. These studies show we do need calcium, but we need a way to keep it in our bones and not have the increased calcium “withdrawals” that happen.
Drink Green Tea
Continuing research shows that green tea can strengthen bones and may help prevent osteoporosis. In a 2017 study, postmenopausal women who were given green tea had noticeable improvement in their bone health.
While it’s the month of Halloween, try to reduce your sugar intake. Studies show that sugar can skew the body’s mineral balance and increase bone depletion.
We know life can be busy, so we’ve created a comprehensive program that will help you strengthen your bones and teethso that you’ll have one less thing to think about!
Six Steps In Our Strengthen Teeth & Bones Program:
Take 2 tsp of this easily absorbable calcium andmagnesium in a 2:1 ratio, plus added Vitamin C, a vital nutrient in bone and teeth health that increases intestinal calcium absorption. We’re mindful of the environment and over use of plastic, so we didn’t include a scoop since we all have teaspoons handy.
Take 30 drops of this phosphorus, essential in building and repairing teeth and bones as it works with calcium and is often missing when people take calcium supplements. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) works with phosphorus for maintenance and cellular repair.
Liquid Vitamin D3, combined with K1 and K2 to increase bioavailability.
The water pressure cleans under the gums, while stimulating circulation and tissue tone. It’s the best alternative to string floss because string floss can miss some food particles.
Take one minty or fruity tasting mint after brushing. It’s one of the only all natural, vegan-certified oral probiotics to promote or restore a healthy oral flora.
These charcoal embedded bristles help clean and purify teeth and gums, reducing plaque, build up & odor-causing bacteria. Charcoal is known to absorb discolorations in your tooth enamel. This sustainable bamboo toothbrush has a 100% biodegradable bamboo handle, is vegan and environmentally-friendly.
