We hear about osteoporosis happening in nursing homes, but what happens when we start to reach that age?
Calcium and Vitamin D can help reduce bone loss, but sometimes it still happens.
Potassium citrate neutralizes the high amounts of acid that are breaking down calcium and muscle. Doctors have found that post-menopausal women who take potassium citrate daily for 12 months acquire a 1% increase in bone density in their lower back and hips instead of a 1% decrease that occurs when not taking potassium citrate.
Furthermore, less calcium is lost in the urine when taking the supplement, which helps prevent kidney stones. Potassium Citrate has also been known to improve blood pressure.
Also, eating more alkaline foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables that are more basic than acidic can help lower the amounts of acid in your body.
