Mushrooms for Bone Health

January 19, 2011

Check out this good article by Vivian Goldschmidt on the benefits of shiitake and other mushrooms for healthy bones. Because of their copper, zinc and other mineral content, all mushrooms can be beneficial not only for bone health but for our immune systems as well. There is even a recipe for shiitake stir fry. Yum.

If you are reading this you are concerned or at least curious about your bone health. There are options. It’s your choice.

We hear about it all night on television.

A problem of epidemic proportions. 

Consider these statistics: 

•Approximately 34 million Americans over the age of 50 are estimated to suffer from decreased bone density 

•Bone and joint disease are a leading cause of disability, affecting over 16 million adults in the United States 

•According to recent figures, 66 million adults — one in three —report chronic joint symptoms

Bony tissue is a chemical storehouse, serving as a repository for essential minerals. It contains 99% of the body’s calcium and releases amounts of  this element as needed to assist in heart, muscle and nerve action. Bone marrow is a blood generator. It produces red blood cells, necessary for transferring oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. Marrow synthesizes white blood cells that help fight off infection and platelets which enable blood to clot and assist in healing. Healthy bones are also a factor in preserving healthy joints, promoting the retention of cartilage and synovial fluid that keep the joint lubricated and cushioned against shock. Without strong, healthy bones, none of these processes are possible. 

If just drinking milk and taking calcium supplements worked we would all have healthy bones, wouldn’t we? 

If you are reading this, you are looking for options, right? Read on.

You will want to know about a revolutionary formula for bone health by Dr Narain Naidu: OsteoDenx from Nikken represents a unique advance in support of healthy, strong bones. 

Only OsteoDenx is designed to promote both aspects of bone health — the release and absorption of vital mineral compounds, and the formation of new bone tissue.* 

OsteoDenx is not a calcium nutritional supplement. It is not a prescription osteo drug. Ordinary supplements merely provide minerals such as calcium and phosphorus in an effort to replace what is depleted every day. OsteoDenx is different: it is designed to complement the body’s natural tissue growth and to help support the physical process of preserving bone density.* 

In its role as a bone health supplement, OsteoDenx helps support a range of physical and systemic activities that are necessary to sustain life. 

»Bone health requires constant replenishment.

Nutritional supplements can supply the raw materials that are needed for bone regeneration. But that is only part of the process. These materials need to be absorbed into bone tissue and converted to usable form. With calcium supplementation alone, much of the ingredients will never reach the intended destination. A large proportion of ingested calcium is excreted, because the body only consumes enough for its immediate needs. Prescription osteo drugs also have their limitations. Pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements both offer essential biochemicals. But by themselves, they lack any mechanism for assisting bone tissue’s ability to make use of these resources. That’s the unique difference with OsteoDenx. It includes a patent- pending transport system that is formulated to support the body’s own, natural replenishment of calcium and other minerals.*
