Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration in the microarchitecture of bone tissue, leading to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis, the density and quality of bone are reduced over time. The bones become more porous and fragile, and the risk of fractures is greatly increased. Osteoporosis occurs “silently” and progressively.
Prevalence & incidence of osteoporosis
According to NCBI study, it is estimated that 1 in 2 women above the age of 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as well as 1 in 3 men. An example of this fact was seen in a study of Delhi estimated the prevalence of osteoporosis as 24.6% in men and 42.5% in women above 50 years of age.
With this high prevalence it is important to look at both the preventive & the management side of the disease
1. Optimum calcium supplementation – It is a well-established fact that calcium is the father of all minerals required in the bone health and with growing age owing to the decreased in absorption of calcium and issues with its bioavailability there is, therefore, a need of a calcium supplement which could maintain the bone health
2. Provide your body with specific bone-building nutrients. For those who have a higher risk of bone loss, a regular multivitamin is okay but it may not be enough. There are many key bone-building nutrients with which we can supplement for improved bone health, including vitamin D and vitamin K.
According to the study, achieving optimum BMD is considered as a most attractive treatment goal for osteoporosis and established the notion of practitioner considered that increasing osteoblastogenesis and decreasing osteoclastogenesis go a long way in managing the disease.
But more often than not, these two prime treatment goals have to meet with individual drugs and shows varied effectiveness. The need of the hour is that, this disease gets a definitive approach which combines both treatment & management aspects.
Essential nutrients & pro-bone minerals required for the healthy Bone: Calcium, Vitamin D and other nutrients (Mg, Zn, B and Si etc.) reduces the risk of osteoporotic fracture.
Realising this dire need Aimil pharmaceutical has launched a revolutionary formulation which fulfills all the objectives of management and prevention. Boniheal is an effective formulation to fight osteoporosis as it increases osteoblastogenesis, limits osteoclastogenesis & promotes bone mineralization by supplementing natural calcium in 4 active forms (Calcium sulphate, Calcium Silicate, Calcium oxide, and Calcium carbonate) with vitamin D, K from natural sources and other supporting botanical extracts which contribute to the maintenance of normal bone health by reducing bone loss and increases bone strength. It also provides pro-bone minerals & nutrients (e.g. Magnesium, Zinc, B, and Si) which are essential cofactors for enzymes involved in the synthesis of the constituents of the bone matrix.
Your bones are for life. Look after them they will carry you far.
