How to Build Better Bone Health After Age 50

By Thomas J. Moffett

Most people don’t think about bone health until they’re at risk for developing osteoporosis, a condition that causes bones to become porous, brittle, and weak.

Dollarphotoclub_24428760According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 54 million Americans age 50 and older are affected by osteoporosis and low bone mass. The statistic came from a 2014 study published by the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research that also said 10.2 million adults have osteoporosis and another 43.4 million have low bone mass.

Decreased bone mass affects people over age 50 more dramatically because the body naturally loses bone and rebuilds it more slowly as people age. Doctors often prescribe medications to slow the rate of bone loss and encourage the body to rebuild bone, but medications are costly and come with lots of uncomfortable and even painful side effects.

Doctors also advise exercise to combat bone loss, but emerging research has shown that diet and exercise alone won’t build significant enough bone mass later in life to reverse the effects of osteoporosis.

A proper diet and regular exercise are always good for overall health, but when it comes to improving bone density, many people are turning to osteogenic loading, an emerging technique that is proven to build bone density at any age.

Osteogenic loading is a brief set of intense resistance movements that naturally triggers the body’s internal rebuilding responses. When it comes to increasing bone mass, osteogenic loading can be more powerful than exercise because monitored sessions allow the user to safely push four or more times their own body weight, the amount of pressure required to build new bone. Patented osteogenic loading technology closely monitors sessions so that even a massive amount of pressure will never become uncomfortable and won’t cause injury.

Osteogenic loading sessions only take about 10 minutes a week and can be done in regular street clothes because people don’t break a sweat.

When the body’s natural rebuilding responses are triggered during high-resistance osteogenic loading sessions, the body continues to build bone for days after the osteogenic loading event. Because it stimulates the whole body, osteogenic loading also leads to improved muscle strength and better balance.

Osteogenic loading is beneficial at every age, regardless of physical condition. For people who are facing bone loss after age 50, it has had a significant impact on reversing the effects of bone loss. Many people who have done osteogenic loading sessions just once per week have completely reversed their osteoporosis and stopped taking osteoporosis medication.

If you are at risk of osteoporosis, or if you already have osteoporosis and are concerned about breaking a bone, consider osteogenic loading. It’s a natural solution that lets your body increase its bone density at any age.
