Hemp Helps Prevent Osteoporosis


Osteoporosis is a condition that affects nearly 40 million people in the U.S. It affects half of women and a quarter of men. Osteoporosis is a bone density reduction that causes increased instances of fractures and breaks.

What causes osteoporosis? Osteoporosis is caused by several factors. In women, one factor is low estrogen. In men, it’s low testosterone. For BOTH sexes it is caused by lack of calcium, lack of vitamin D, and sedentary lifestyle, medications, and illness.

An excellent way to supplement the vitamin D and calcium is by adding hemp seeds and hemp seed oil to the diet. Hemp is full of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.

The essential fatty acids in hemp help with absorption of the calcium and vitamin D and aid in bone growth and calcification, and reduce calcium excretion in the urine (calcium loss and excretion through the urine can also cause kidney stones).

Daily exercise, stopping smoking, and eating a healthy diet rich in hemp seeds and hemp seed oil can prevent osteoporosis.

Hemp – your bones will love it!
