Seaweed, Magnesium and Osteoporosis

Eating seaweed could help brittle bones

Osteoporosis is a condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It affects millions of people worldwide, predominantly post-menopausal women.

In general, because osteoporosis is determined from a young age when your body is growing, there is a strong argument to come up with preventive strategies. For example, ensuring you have an optimum diet.

Up until now, the main focus has been on calcium and vitamin D for nutritional prevention of osteoporosis, however new research suggests a tight control of magnesium could be crucial for bone health.

The correct balance of magnesium alongside vitamin D and calcium when young could prevent osteoporosis. Seaweed (and other green vegetables) contain high amounts of magnesium and calcium in a format that's easily absorbed by the body.
