Protein Protects Both Men & Women Against Osteoporosis

proteinStudies confirmed that protein protects against osteoporosis. It has been confirmed in real-life evidence that protein strengthens, rather than weakens bones. In 2012, a study has been published in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed that consumption of animal-based protein can increase bone mineral density (BMD) . However, consumption of plant-based protein decreased bone mineral density in both men and women. There were improved recoveries and less bone loss for hip fracture patients who consumed protein supplements. It was also noted that protein was a key structural component of bone, accounting for half of bone volume and one fourth of bone mass.

There was another remarkable study was published in 2006 in the medical journal Osteoporosis International on the relationship between high-protein, low-carb diets and bone loss. The study found that an Atkins-type diet had no effect on bone loss or bone integrity. Diets were studied for three months, and showed no significant differences in bone turnover (removal of old bone, placement with new bone) compared to no-dieters.

In conclusion, dietary animal protein had protective role in the skeletal health of elderly women. You have to take not that the important structure, which is the bone matrix is made of protein and Parent Essential Oils or PEOs. High-protein consumption did nothing to impair bone turnover, nor could it, based on human physiology. It was also proven that plant-based protein is significantly inferior to animal-based protein in terms of preventing bone loss or protecting against osteoporosis. Consumption of adequate animal-based protein as well as PEOs can help stop osteoporosis.
