Those of us in the natural medicine and nutrition fields have been touting the use of natural calcium compounds to not only aid in the prevention of osteoporosis but also as a safe alternative to osteoporosis drugs. We have been warning women of the potential dangers of osteoporosis drugs for several decades. The FDA has recently issued a warning for a specific class of bone drugs called bisphosphonates. You may not recognize the name bisphosphonates but you will certainly be familiar with their drug names, which include Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, and Atelvia. Bisphosphonates have now been shown to greatly increase the risk of hip and femoral fractures, the very problem they were designed to prevent! While it is not yet known how drugs like Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, and Atelvia increase the risk and danges, the FDA has issued an official warning for these bone drugs. Hip and femoral fractures are common in those with osteoporosis and bone loss but no one suspected that Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva and Atelvia would actually contribute to this problem. There have been seven clinical studies showing that calcium, in the right form, can not only halt the progression of bone loss, but can actually increase bone density over time. Calcium and bone loss has always been at the heart of osteoporosis. Bone is made up of calcium and when calcium is leached from the bone to meet the needs of the body chemistry, it must be replaced. As we age, our ability to absorb calcium from dietary sources greatly decreases. This lack of calcium absorption causes a calcium deficit and bone loss is the result. Calcium supplements alone cannot always meet this need. Trace minerals such as magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc and strontium must also be present at the same time. Calcium absorption relies on these trace minerals. Studies have shown that calcium absorption increases dramatically when the calcium supplement also provides the trace mineral co-factors. These alternatives to drugs for bone loss are not only much safer, but very effective as well. When considering a program for the prevention or reversal of bone loss, it would be wise and much safer to consider alternatives to drugs for bone loss, which are being shown to possess almost as much risk as benefit.
