Hi Ssa, thank you for getting me off the dime about my osteopenia. I just posted some thoughts about calcium as it fits into my routine here.
It would be interesting for someone super knowledgeable about it to offer a sort of hierarchy of which components to bone health are most important. Interestingly, Dr. Bredesen has said that our brain health depends on the balance between neurogenic and neurodegenerative factors and has used the analogy of the balance between osteoblasts and osteoclasts in bone health. In his brain model he's found that many see improvements in cognition even when they can't address all the "holes in their roof." Perhaps this is true for bone health too. That if we understood all the variables the way Dr. Bredesen parses out those of brain equilibrium, we could get away with some not being perfect. Stavia does a nice job in the Primer addressing the big kahunas of brain health. I'd like something like that for bone health so we don't overthink some of its variables that may have less impact than others, or that are more easily obtained through diet than supplement because the amounts needed may not be that high. For example selenium and zinc. How much are really needed for good bones? So often the supplements are quite high doses (I saw your post about the selenium issue). So your program may have helped your bones, but that doesn't tell us whether it goes too far at the same time.
