The latter of course has a great impact on the micro-nutrient budget and hence on the bone metabolism. Depressed vulnerable people already have a greater need for micronutrients. In focus, the calcium is again when it comes to bone health. Calcium is needed for the construction of the bone; a calcium deficiency can be brittle bone structure. At this point, it was once mentioned that the recommendation to eat much dairy, is problematic to counteract osteoporosis.

Milk products contain much calcium, but an excessive consumption of animal proteins, as in the industrialized countries, can lead to an acidification of the organism. Calcium is needed for the neutralization of acids and mobilized from the bone tissue. It is better on calcium-containing vegetables, fruit and grains or seeds to access back. Another way to optimize the Calcium-rich mineral waters are calcium supply containing 150 500 mg calcium per litre. The bioavailability of calcium from these waters is the same as that of milk or higher. In addition to calcium other micro nutrients are needed for a stable bone such as magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, Silicon, vitamin D, K, C, B6, B12 folic acid and certain amino acids.

Vitamins C and B6 are necessary to support the Hypermobility and promote cross-linking and stability of the collagen fibrils. Vitamin K is necessary to make Osteocalcin, a protein of the bone matrix. An increased synthesis of Osteocalcin goes hand in hand with an increased storage of calcium salts in bone. An increased intake of magnesium was 2005 associated in a study by the University of Tennessee Health Science Center with a significantly higher bone density when compared to people with the lowest intake of magnesium. Vitamin D3 is required to regulate of the calcium absorption from the gut. To vitamin D, there is still an interesting study, the End of December 2008 was published: it shows that the vitamin D status plays a much larger role for bone density than calcium intake. At just under 10,000 participants of US NHANES III bone density study were 20 years later, calcium absorption and the vitamin D status. It proved that a higher calcium intake also with a higher bone density was connected only in women with a vitamin D concentration below 20 ng / ml. At a vitamin D concentration of 20 ng / ml, the amount of calcium intake had no significant impact on bone density. Is a lack of micro-nutrients, that is not readily apparent. Already an accurate blood test is necessary. The Diagnostic Center for mineral analysis and spectroscopy DCMS GmbH, a longtime lab with much experience in the micro nutrient medicine carries out appropriate micro-nutrient analyses. Be investigated including micronutrients, which are required for bone metabolism or regulating effect on the nervous system, to E.g. To counteract depression. Patient and physician will receive a comprehensive analysis report with an exact treatment recommendation. Thus, a targeted therapy with the appropriate missing vitamins, minerals, trace elements and amino acids is possible, what benefit to bone health and the nervous system.
