Osteoporosis, look at what else is in your arsenal! You are what you eat!

Plums! Are a secret weapon for Osteoporosis!

Yes!  That’s right the most unlikely weapon in your arsenal to fight osteoporosis are plums, a STEADY diet of them too!  If you crack open the pit of a plum, you will find a gift.  Ahhh, the plum, often overlooked as you pass over the fruit section of your favorite grocery store, reaching for apples and oranges.

Whether its the plum or its withered sweet sister the prune, which are both known for their rich delicious sweetness and high fiber content, they hide within their pits a much needed compound known as “silica.”  

Before we get to that ladies, let’s talk about the skeleton, I know you may be thinking, here’s another chiropractor talking about “bones,”  but take heed to what I’m about to say.   To put it in simple terms, a woman’s skeleton functions as a “mineral bank.”   In that “bone bank” there are many types of essential minerals, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, iron, magnesium, manganese & traces of copper, selenium, strontium.  The “cement” that holds all of these minerals together to form healthy bone is known as “silica.”

Plums and plum kernels

In the battle to stop the natural progression of the aging of bone, where bones become dangerously brittle and weak, it’s essential to arrest the process of aging.  It’s not only the depletion of calcium, it’s the change in lifestyle, less exercise, lack of Vitamin D with the combination of more technology can mean becoming more sedentary.  It’s also diet.  It has been shown that people on the go or more apt to stop for fast food rather than grabbing a fruit or a vegetable.  It’s a known fact that women using the phytochemical “silica” by eating plums daily or making smoothies with plum kernels in them have gained a good percentage of their bone density back every year, just by eating right doing exercise and making this a lifestyle change!

If that doesn’t grab your attention, how about this?  Silica is also a main constituent of collagen which during the aging process, forms wrinkles, lack of silica can also manifest in gums, teeth, hair and nails as well as well as many other things!  It’s the cement that holds our bodies together!
