Power Boost That Could Save Your Life

You probably know someone who’s fallen and broken a hip. You may not know that it’s not just the elderly who fall, or break their hips. All seniors are at risk.
The risk doubles every five years after you turn 50. Nine out of 10 hip fractures happen to people over 60. And more than 25 percent of those people will develop complications and die within a year.1
No matter what your age or level of fitness, you can take a few simple steps – right away – to keep this from happening to you.
A new study tells a revealing story. Turns out, the signals to your muscles start to slow down as you get older, making it harder for your muscles to respond.
Researchers at the University of Delaware looked at how muscles respond when the cells that activate them, called neurons, send out electrical signals for the muscles to move.
They found that in the elderly, not only do muscles respond more slowly, but neurons actually fire less frequently. At first glance this seems to confirm the conventional wisdom that slowing down physically is an inevitable consequence of aging but there’s more…

How To Build Strong Bones That Last a Lifetime

I have some news for you that goes against almost everything you hear on CBS News, or read on WebMD… osteoporosis isn’t caused by a lack of calcium.
Mainstream medicine still has its head in the sand on this. I just read a new study from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association claiming – again – that you aren’t getting enough calcium, and that calcium is what prevents osteoporosis.
Don’t get me wrong, calcium is critical for making bone. But you’re getting enough calcium. It’s in almost everything you can think of – like bread, milk, orange juice, pasta, yogurt, toothpaste, chewing gum, snack crackers and granola bars… it’s even in your water, depending on where you live. That’s a lot of calcium.
In fact, two studies back up what I’ve known for years. Higher calcium intake doesn’t prevent fractures due to bone loss,1 and can damage your heart.

These Drugs Poison Your Bones

Would you use a drug that gives you the problem it’s supposed to prevent?
Well, that’s exactly what’s going on with the new osteoporosis drugs.
Fosomax, Boniva, Reclast, Actonel … these medications are supposed to help stop you from getting bone fractures as you get older. But we now have evidence that they cause bone breaks.
Researchers studied women taking these medications – called bisphosphonates – who experienced some sort of fracture. Over 65 percent had the same rare fracture in the same area of their thigh bones. And these were the women who had been on the drugs for the longest periods.1

Simple Nutrient Gives You Bones of Steel

Mainstream medicine has missed the boat on this one.
You’re constantly warned about the danger of high-protein diets.
And this is the worst part. They tell you that the reason you have to avoid a high-protein diet is that it weakens your bones.
The truth is the exact opposite. High protein strengthens your bones…
