Maca for Bone Health and Regeneration

 

In the United States, a staggering number of more than 40 million people are affected by osteoporosis, a disease characterized by low bone mass. When bones become weak and brittle, it drastically increases the risk of fracture. Many people with osteoporosis break bones in their wrists, spine, hips and ribcage.Osteoporosis is more common in older women, but can occur at any age in both men and women.

One risk factor is hormone imbalance that leads to bone loss. Low estrogen levels can cause osteoporosis in women and low testosterone levels can cause it in men. Usually medical doctors prescribe hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to slow down the process. However, HRT has several undesirable effects in the body: it can adversely affect other organs and has even been associated with increasing the risk of breast and uterine cancer.

Recent research in Peru has revealed a fascinating relationship between bone health and one of our favorite superfoods, maca. The study showed that maca has a significant ability to help regenerate bone density. In this breakthrough study, hormone replacement therapy and maca were closely compared. With both treatments, the osteoporosis diminished. However, with maca, bones were not damaged during the regeneration process as they were with hormone replacement.

Read on to learn more about maca, its amazing properties, and why it should be a part of your daily healthy lifestyle.
