Is it convenient to take milk to prevent osteoporosis?

Why not try to make our own Sesame drink? Sesame contains more calcium that milk and is also much more assimilable.
¿Es conveniente tomar lácteos para prevenir la osteoporosis?
Many people directly related to osteoporosis the need to eat more dairy foods, due to the deficiency of calcium in the bones. But the truth in many other cultures which do not consume milk or its derivatives osteoporosis rates are much lower than in our which requires us to evaluate whether this relationship is really correct.
In this article we explain the advantages and disadvantages of consuming dairy products to prevent and treat osteoporosis, as well as some healthy alternatives to combat this disease and foods that we should avoid because they steal the calcium to our bones.

Why is milk recommended?

There are some realities by which it has always recommended milk and dairy products for the health of the bones, and is the high content of calcium that contributes, about 120 mg for every 100 gr. In addition, lactose (milk sugar) containing improves its absorption into the body.
On the other hand it is a natural and available food, while the quality of the milk that is sold today is much lower that the of a few decades ago.

What disadvantages does it?

Despite this huge advantage in terms of calcium, the truth is that it has three major disadvantages.
  1. The first of these is that the absorption of the calcium is not as high as it seems, because other milk components as they are for example proteins, the hormone tirocalcina or calcium/phosphorus ratio.
  2. On the other hand, the proteins that contains, in addition, acidify our blood. This acidification demineralizes our bones, since you must use part of these minerals to balance and alkalize our body.
  3. There are many people who suffer varying degrees of lactose intolerance without knowing it, and this intolerance harms the health of intestines, irritating them and worsen the absorption of nutrients.
Ultimately, calcium that we cited as main advantage really is not absorbed by our body properly. That is why we are high rates of osteoporosis in people who have just eaten dairy during his life. Therefore we propose to seek other sources of calcium most assimilated and bscar foods that contain other minerals that contribute to a correct assimilation and binding of calcium.

Alternative sources of calcium

  • Sesame: it contains more calcium that milk and is much more assimilable. We can take the raw Sesame ground or in the form of gomasio (ground and toasted) with salt, oil pressure cold and in crude oil or tahini (sesame paste). We can also beat the Tahini with water, lemon, cinnamon and honey to make our own Sesame drink.
  • Cooked carrot: much richer in calcium than when it is raw
  • Algae: are also rich in many other minerals. We can use them for cooking stews and Spice sauces and salads. We highlight the alga Spirulina for their numerous properties.
  • Green leafy vegetables, especially broccoli.
  • Maca: it contains much calcium and iron and is also an excellent hormone regulator. People with hypertension should be careful without control and people with immune system overdrive. We recommend to check this article to know what dose to take.
  • Cane molasses: very rich in calcium, but must consume it in small quantities and combined with herbal teas, drinks vegetable or fruit so you don't cause an acidification.
  • Ponytail: this medicinal plant not stand out it for its content in calcium, but by being very rich in Silicon, which helps us to better assimilate calcium. We can take two or three cups daily.
  • Sea water: a very balanced and natural supplement containing all the minerals we need in their fair proportions. We can be found in health food and dietary. We recommend to take 1 tablespoon before each meal.
