Bone density, bone health, and osteoporosis should be on everyone’s mind. As we age better and longer, bone health requires some specific attention. Bone density supplements are worth diving into. It’s not just about getting exercise, calcium, or even lifting weights. It’s in the how, what, and when that you observe lifestyle habits that make you more or less vulnerable to bone loss. My guest expert on bone density supplements today is Teri Cochrane.
Teri received her Bachelors of Science from the University of Florida, she is a graduate of the Huntington College of Health Sciences, The National Institute of Nutritional Education, the National Leadership Institute, and the Upledger Institute. Teri is a Certified Nutritionist and a member of the International Association of Healthcare Practitioners and National Association of Nutrition Professionals. She also has certifications and extensive experience in holistic medicinal practices.
Teri reinforces myth busting in alignment with Flipping 50. Bless her heart! There’s no if this, then that rule that says if you’re a certain age, then you can expect this! If there is… you can start changing your expectations and get different results.
If you’re currently supplementing or considering supplementing for bone density you’ll want to listen to this episode. Remember that with supplements there is always the balance of pros and cons. You want to look not only at what you eat or take, but also how well it’s absorbed. What is the bioavailability of the foods and nutrients you ingest?
Teri shares the biggest secret of all. Don’t miss it. It wasn’t about the risk of bone density supplements that are being used today. It wasn’t about the new one and research on it that she and I discussed.
The biggest truth Teri shares is that we need:
- to become more aware of what we don’t know
- and then do something about it when we know it
