Eat Fish - Save Your Bones!

Fish Bones? We usually try to avoid this combination, but not anymore!

Fish oils have the possibility to protect your bone mass, preventing osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related fractures. Ashburn residents without a doubt want to avert those! Ashburn men especially should want to avoid those fractures since their risk of death from osteoporosis-related fractures during their initial hospital stay or within the year following the fracture is twice that of women's. (1) So, let's prevent those fractures.

We at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn love when new articles provide our patients with practical information like the following study. From the Framingham Osteoporosis Study comes this newest study discussing the benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids and fish for guarding bone mass health. Fish oils - source of the omega-3 oils EPA, DHA, ALA- are recognized for their beneficial impact on heart health and cholesterol control.

Now, this study suggests that fish oil has an even greater impact than previously thought. Researchers found that eating three or more servings of fish per week is related with maintaining bone mass density. This leads to the conclusion that fish may well protect against bone loss. (2)

Save Money and Pain

Preserving bone mass and preventing osteoporosis and its related fractures may save our healthcare system some money and us the agony of dealing with osteoporosis treatments and fracture recovery. In 2008, it was estimated that $22 billion is spent in the U.S. on elderly patients suffering with osteoporosis and the fractures. (3) Some of that was spent right here in Ashburn.
