7) Adding Flax Seed To The Diet To Guard Against Osteoporosis

One last dietary change to consider that could also reduce the risk for brittle bones is the addition of flaxseed to the diet. Research from the Egyptian National Research Center found that neutered female rats who were fed flax seed oil retained their bone density much better than rats that did not have flax seed in their diet. Again, such a dietary change is very simple so its value in preventing Osteoporosis is significant.

Conclusions

Even though it is a significant cause of disability and early death in older age, Osteoporosis does not get much public attention aside from the commercials selling calcium and vitamin D. Treatments do exist to slow development of the condition, but prevention is by far the most effective approach against Osteoporosis. Fortunately, medical science has found a number of ways in which Osteoporosis can be prevented through changes that we individuals can make.
