In Part 1, I talked about the importance of weight training to increase and maintain bone mass as well as reducing the risks associated with menopause. In this continuation, I will discuss briefly one of the many challenges that the Menopausal Female faces daily. Let’s talk about diet. When it comes to diet, most women in general are very health conscious. However, women are constantly being “mis-led” by the media when it comes to their health especially, when it comes to supplementation.
The primary message coming from the dairy industry is that you need calcium for strong bones and to help prevent osteoporosis. Therefore, they should drink milk. “Drink Milk, It Does The Body Good” has been blasted for years on TV. Pasteurized milk in any form – (is a form of liquid sugar with deodorizers and synthetic Vitamin D added to it). You should know that you can’t have healthy and strong bones without adequate Magnesium, Vitamin D3, Boron, and the right form of Calcium. Oh, by the way, there’s no calcium in milk! Did you get that? I’ll repeat, “THERE’S NO CALCIUM IN MILK”
