Hispanic Americans should take care of their bone health
Posted by Gus Perez on 6/29/2014

Contrary to popular belief, calcium and vitamin D supplementation for bone mass is not the only form to build bone density. Because of the media has done a great job in promoting these two supplements for bone mass, people rely and believe that this is the answer to good bone health. According to Dr. Josh Axe, a Clinical Nutritionist, calcium in the form of supplements or milk are not the best way to build bone health, it’s vitamin K2 that helps improve bone density and prevent osteoporosis. 

Vitamin K2 (Menaquinone-7) is found in egg yolks, soy, organ meats (beef tongue, heart, and liver), and dairy products. Unfortunately, most of us obtain a very little amount of this nutrient due to a small portion found in the western diet. Nonetheless, it is a vital nutrient that has been scientifically shown to help with bone solidity. 

One of the bone health concerns that we are prone to as we age is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile which can lead to pain and discomfort. Osteoporosis was thought to affect only the Asian and Caucasian populations, but recent research shows that is now impacting the Hispanic American community. According to American Bone Health, Latinos have higher rates of low bone density than previously considered and the risk of osteoporosis is equivalent to those high risk groups (Caucasians and Asians). 

Natura-Genics'® Natural Vitamin K has been extracted from Natto (fermented soybean) to deliver strength to your bones. This type of vitamin K (MK-7) helps keep calcium in the bones to maintain good bone mass. 

In order to achieve excellent bone mass you have to discipline yourself by eating healthy (living foods), exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, resting, as well as taking vitamin K2.
