Superfoods For Super Bones

Author : Robert Boswell


Most folks trust that the main cause of osteoporosis is the deficiency of calcium in their diet. But then, in the complete picture, calcium is only a little piece of the puzzle. Although calcium supplements could absolutely assist, there are alternative dietary concerns that have to to be examined.

In fact, the main dietary cause of osteoporosis is the eating foods that are very acidic in nature, like refined white sugar, refined white flour, high-fructose corn syrup, soft drinks, cookies, candies, sweets, desserts, and anything containing sweeteners. The over-consumption of the said products causes the pH level in your blood to be very acidic. In an attempt to stabilize this, your body reaches out for any calcium and magnesium it can find, and releases those into your bloodstream in an attempt to keep the pH level at a healthy balance.

As a result, with every soft drink, candy, cake and goodie you indulge in, you are robbing your skeleton of its bone density. The calcium and magnesium the body harvests in an attempt to counteract this acidic environment gets passed through your kidneys, where it may also give to kidney stones and exits your body through your urine. To rule out losing your bone mass to dietary causes, simply avoid consuming any white flour, processed sugars, added sugars, soft drinks, sweets, candies, breads, or any other ingredients that are made with refined carbohydrates.

Also, certain superfoods, such as broccoli, cabbage, celery and other dark green leafy vegetables assist keep the pH balance in a healthy equilibrium. You need to get a lot of calcium and magnesium from healthy sources like organic, plant-based vitamins. You also have to supplement your diet with various sea vegetables, which are naturally alkaline. Those involve seaweed, kelp, and many others. Sprouts are also an awesome superfood decision.
