How to Strengthen Bones and Reduce Risk of Breaking

Monday 29 August 2022

Once women hit menopause, their lower oestrogen levels leave them more vulnerable to osteoporosis. It is a silent disease in the sense that there are usually no symptoms until the bone breaks. The spine, hips and wrists are especially prone to fractures, even if the person doesn't fall.

In people with osteoporosis, the bones can be so brittle that normal activities like lifting objects, bending over or coughing, can cause an unexpected fracture. Fractures can lead to chronic pain, deformities and disability, resulting in poor quality of life, dependance on others for daily activities and higher medical bills.

The best screening test to detect osteoporosis is dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scan (DEXA scan). It measures the density of bones (BMD). It is recommended that women aged above 65 and men above 70 go for a BMD measurement. Screening should be done earlier in patients with strong risk factors for developing osteoporosis, including:

(i) premature menopause,

(ii) being on prolonged steroid treatment, or

(iii) having anorexia nervosa and certain other medical conditions.

Some things you can do to prevent and reduce the risk of fractures include:

(i) Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake.

(ii) Measures to minimise the chances of falling.

(iii) Lead a healthy lifestyle by getting adequate exercise.

(iv) Limit caffeine and alcohol intake and abstain from smoking.

Is there anything you can take to strengthen your bones?

1. Lingzhi / Ganoderma

At the same time, complement with Yung Kien Bone Ganoderma (YKBone). Scientific experiments have proven that YKBone can: 

- Accelerate healing of bone injury from falls and fractures.
- Improve osteoporosis caused by menopause or removal of ovaries.
- Improve degenerative arthritis or inflammation of joints due to ageing or sports injuries.

For me, as I presently don't have any specific problem, I just add 1 sachet of YKBone a day into my daily supplements intake for prevention and maintenance of healthy skeletal structure.

2. Collagen

Collagen is a structural protein that forms connective tissues in our body. Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that has been broken down into smaller chains for easier digestion.

Vitaking is a bio-technology product containing hydrolyzed collagenlemon verbena and D-Ribose. The benefits of Vitaking include strengthening bone functions, helping to repair joint cartilage tissues and reducing the stiffness and pain caused by aging joints. Vitaking collagen also alleviate inflammatory symptoms and relieve arthritic pains caused by physical exertion and movement.
