Bound For Abundance Releases Simple Program To Improve Bone Health
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 01, 2015 ) Conway, Arkansas -- Resistance bands are now available from Bound for Abundance LLC for sale in the US;
Is there hope for the nearly 10 million people in the US affected by bone loss?
The answer is "yes", according to a recent study published at PubMed.gov, a division of the National Institutes of Health. Reduced bone mass is a common problem associated with aging, and for most people, begins sometime in their 30s. For women, bone loss can significantly ramp up during the first 10 years after menopause. It's during this time when osteoporosis (a condition marked by fractures of the hip, wrists and vertebrae along with height loss and chronic pain) can gain a foothold.
According to the bone mineral study, participants significantly increased the density of their hipbones by performing vertical jumps. Women aged 25 to 50 in approximately 20 US cities were asked to jump either 10 or 20 times in a row, twice per day. After four months, both groups saw increases in the density of their hipbones. The 20 jump group experienced the most significant gains in hip bone mineral density.
This is very good news because it confirms weight-bearing exercise is one of the most effective remedies against osteoporosis. And, luckily, science has a fairly simple explanation of this. As tension increases on the muscles they, in turn, apply pressure to the bones. Bones then respond by producing fresh, new bone. This dynamic process of regeneration is called bone remodeling. Bone remodeling is carried out by bone cells called osteoclasts which break down and carry away old, expired bone. Then bone cells called osteoblasts, which are stimulated by tension from the muscles, lay down fresh, new bone in its place.
Another piece of good news is that this process can and does occur throughout life, when given the opportunity. So it's never too late to start rebuilding bone density.
One thing worth mentioning, though, is that bisphosphonate prescription drugs like Fosamax or Boniva address only one side of the bone-building equation. They work by impairing the action of the osteoclasts, keeping the old, expired bone from being removed. Harold N Rosen, MD writes in Pharmacology of Bisphosphonates, "Bone formation is often reduced by bisphosphonates, which is probably an indirect effect of inhibition of bone resorption. In normal bone remodeling, bone resorption and formation are coupled. Changes in resorption drive formation, so, when bone resorption decreases, bone formation also decreases."
Bound for Abundance is issuing a challenge to men and women alike to take back their bone health through strength training. No need to shy away from strength training at any age since even the smallest amount of tension can begin producing muscle.
Resistance bands build strong and lean muscles. They are portable, safer than free weights, comfortable and appropriate for all fitness levels. And, Bound for Abundance offers a lifetime warranty so there's never a worry about replacement costs.
