Thank you for the article, I have had 4 kids and been a life long supporter of the benefits of breast feeding. However, as a woman who was breastfed and still got osteoporosis, I thought I'd share some of my experiences and what has worked for me.
I lead a healthy lifestyle however like many women at my age, I have been losing bone density for the last several years. (maybe since menopause?)
I’ve been reluctant to try any prescription medication but a few years ago I gave in and my doctor prescribed Fosomax for me. I took it for a couple months but the side effects like nausea, diarreha and general muscle soreness were really affecting my day to day activities.
I stopped taking Fosomax and decided to go the more natural route. I began looking into the effects of resveratrol and after coming across this Journal of Biological Chemistry article (link to article listed below) I began taking a regimen of Resvantage resveratrol on a daily basis. There are many resveratrol supplements on the market but this one is physician recommended, made by Pfizer, and because the resveratrol is micronized it is 3.6x more effective than store bought brands.
That was 3 years ago and yearly tests have shown that I haven't had any further bone losses over that period of time. I have experienced no side effects; quite the opposite, resveratrol has me sleeping more soundly and I have added muscle mass which we tend to lose along with bone mass as we age. My mental acuity has improved as well.
