The dramatic decline in oestrogen production caused by the menopause has far reaching effects for female bone health.  

Oestrogen has a protective effect on bones and low levels following the menopause leave women at greater risk of developing the bone disorders osteopenia and osteoporosis, and suffering fractures more easily.

Calcium is the main nutrient people think of when considering bone health yet so many other co-factors are needed to work with calcium in order for it to be absorbed and utilised properly by bone tissue, and also for maintaining the matrix structure inside bones onto which minerals and nutrients latch.  These co-factors include magnesium, silica, boron, vitamin C, zinc and vitamin D.

Research from Germany has highlighted how vitamin D not only regulates bone density, but that low levels are associated with the risk factors for falls and fractures such as body sway and trunk muscle strength.

Body sway is the natural movements our bodies make away from our centre line of balance – too much sway is a clear risk factor for a fall!  The researchers found that post menopausal women with low vitamin D had increased body sway and were at greater risk of falls and fractures from daily activities.

We reach peak bone density in our 20’s so paying attention to bone-building nutrients from an early age is especially important in order to offset the risk of osteoporosis in later life.  Here in the UK we are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency simply because we don’t get enough sunlight particularly between October and April.  Supplementing with an easy to take form of vitamin D such as an oral spray is a safe and simple way to protect your bones from teens through to later life.
