For a healthy cardiovascular system, not only does nutrition play an important role, but also your lifestyle such as too much alcohol and smoking are bad for your cardiovascular system. Are you exercising enough and how do you deal with the stress in your life? Of course you can also have a genetic predisposition.
Do you also want to slow your risk of osteoporosis
Osteoporosis literally means the bones becoming porous. The bone density decreases because the bones lose their minerals, mainly calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Women suffer from it more than men. This is because osteoporosis is accelerated by declining progesterone and estrogen levels. It starts around the age of 40.
What nutrients are important for healthy bones?
Good sources of calcium are green vegetables, nettle tea, unroasted nuts and seeds and tempeh. Avoid excess animal protein (meat and dairy), soft drinks and alcohol because they actually withdraw calcium from your bones or interfere with proper absorption.
Vitamin D3 is needed for proper absorption of calcium from the intestines.
For the absorption of calcium we need magnesium. Many women have a magnesium deficiency. The main cause of this is stress.
When does the breakdown of your bones begin?
During childhood and adolescence, the rate of formation is greater than the rate of breakdown. After the age of 25-30 this changes leading gradually to loss of bone strength and mass.
Women from areas in Japan with high consumption of natto have been shown to have fewer bone fractures and generally have stronger bones than in areas where natto is eaten less.
