Osteoporosis Medications linked to Jaw Bone Disease

jawOne out of 25 users of Fosamax and other bisphosphonate drugs may be at risk of serious jaw bone deterioration. The report was conducted by the Journal of the American Dental Association .

The specific the jaw bone problem which can develop from using these drugs is a disease called “osteonecrosis” or “ONJ”. ONJ is linked to the temporary or permanent loss of blood to bone tissue, which can lead to tissue death and eventually bone collapse. ONJ can occur as a result of a bone injury like fractures or dislocations. Major dental work is another type of trauma which may also cause ONJ.

Many people use medications like Fosamax® or Boniva® to prevent or treat osteoporosis. The list of other possible side effects may also cause one may take pause. They include:

  • Ulceration of the esophagus
  • Pain in the back, arms, legs or belly
  • Bronchitis
  • Vertigo
  • Indigestion and/or vomiting
  • High cholesterol
  • Insomnia

Fosamax and Boniva can facilitate in hardening existing bone not regenerating new bone.

A more natural approach to restoring bone health and enabling the body to form new bone should include:

Prime™ Balance Bone Formula – for postmenopausal women and older men. Helps prevent osteoporosis, support calcium absorption and retention, maintain bone density and support normal mineralization and bone formation with a patented ingredient called Bonistein.

Isotonix® Calcium Plus – an optimal blend of calcium, vitamin D3, magnesium, vitamin C and boron in an efficient isotonic solution that is readily absorbed by the body.

Isotonix OPC-3® – free radical scavenger supports cellular health, 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than vitamin E.  Assists in creating collagen which contributes to calcium bonding with bone.

A Natural Way to Build Bone

CBR001266Osteoporosis is a rapidly growing disease which currently affects over 28 million people.  This silent and often painless disease destroys valuable bone tissue and often is discovered when fractures occur to the spine, hip, or wrist.  Osteoporosis can also be triggered by extended use of steroids and certain medications that leach minerals from the skeleton over time.  Women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis, but men are far from exempt.

Fortunately, using super potent anti-oxidants like Isotonix OPC-3® stimulate our bodies natural production of collagen.  Collagen is necessary for calcium to bond with in order to form bone.  Isotonix® Calcium Plus is a highly bio-available form of calcium that works in concert with Isotonix OPC-3 to address osteoporosis and bone loss issues.  It also contains vitamin D3 which is a metabolically active form of D (superior to D1).

Prime™ Balance Bone Formula is another excellent product that works synergistically with OPC-3 especially in low estrogen conditions.  Estrogen reduces calcium loss in bone.  Prime Balance Bone Maintenance Formula contains  a product called Bonistein™, which is a form of genistein.  Genistein is a isoflavone that is very similar to natural estrogens.  Therefore, men or postmenopausal women can still receive the benefits that estrogen contributes in maintaining bone health.  Dense supple bone is definitely superior to hardened porous bone!

Prime Balance Bone Maintenance Formula is designed to help prevent osteoporosis, support calcium absorption and retention, maintain bone density and support normal mineralization and bone formation.
