Details

 

Think of our bones as a calcium bank, where we can only deposit calcium till the age of 30. By then, we would have reached our Peak Bone Mass and our calcium bank cannot increase its calcium savings further.

 

This does not mean that the intake of calcium is no longer needed. In fact, it becomes even more important for us to meet our daily calcium requirement.

 

Why?
Because our body loses calcium daily.

 

If daily calcium intake is not met,
your body will start taking calcium from your bones instead!

 
 

The list above is not exhaustive and there are many other consequences of calcium deficiency. In order to prevent calcium deficiency, you will first need to know exactly how much calcium do you need every day.

 
 

 

The minimum amount of calcium adults need to meet everyday is 800mg.

 

Assuming they drink 1 packet of milk (200ml) per day, that’s 200mg* of calcium.

 

They will need a total of 4 packets of milk to fulfill their daily requirement!

 

That’s an additional 371kcal, which is more than a cheeseburger! Finding other sources of calcium rich food or supplements with lesser calories could be a healthier alternative.

 
* Based on typical calcium content found in whole fresh milk.
 

Do you also know that your bones need more than just calcium to be strong?

 
 

A common misconception is that calcium is all you need to get healthy bones. However, there are other nutrients and lifestyle habits that are essential to build strong bones.

 

Building
blocks for
healthy bones

Vitamin D

 

Children need it to build strong bones

 

Adults need it to keep bones strong and healthy

 

Without suffcient Vitamin D, your bones will break easily

Collagen

 

90% of organic bone mass

 

10g of collagen peptides intake daily can increase bone mass density

Magnesium

 

Enables body to absorb an adequate amount of calcium

 

May suppress a hormone which breaks down bone

 

Ideal intake should be in a ratio of 2 Calcium : 1 Magnesium

 

There are various sources to obtain suffcient nutrients from.

Sunlight

Naturally produced in skin in response to sunlight. However, excessive UV exposure increases the risk of skin cancer

 

Food

Fatty fish, e.g. salmon and tuna. Fortified milk, e.g. soy milk and cereals

 

Supplements

If you are unable to get enough vitamin D from sunlight or food, it is best to meet your daily requirement with supplements

 
 

Magnesium

Sources of magnesium

 

Food

Supplement

Supplements are a good way to make up for a lack of magnesium in the body

 
 

Today, most of our meals consist of processed or refined food, which may result in a shortage of nutrients in our bodies.

 

In order to meet the nutrients we require for healthy bones, supplements are a good way to fulfill the daily nutrient requirements.

1

You ‘lose’ bones as you age

 

We are born with about 300 bones but end up with just 206 bones eventually. This is because many bones, like those in your skull, fuse together as you grow.

2

Puberty

 

At the ends of our arms and legs, there are growth plates. As long as they stay open, our bones continue to grow. For boys, these plates close during the late teenage years. For girls, the plates close within 2 years after their first menstruation.

3

Exercise to be sturdy as a rock

 

Our bones stop taking in calcium at about the age of 30. Bone density starts decreasing and to stop that, we have to exercise on top of consuming nutrients such as calcium and vitamin D.

4

Breaking bones to strengthen them

 

Most martial artists damage their bone surfaces during their training. These surfaces knit together to form a new bone and sometimes, the new bone is even stronger!

5

The number of bones in your hands

 

There are 54 bones in our hands, making it the body part that has the most number of bones. These bones in our hands, fingers and wrists allow us to perform many functions like playing the piano, writing and typing messages.

6

More than just a structure

 

Together, our bones help us move, protect our organs, generate blood cells, and even help to store and regulate minerals.
