Belly Fat Linked to Bone Health

Belly Fat Linked to Bone Health

In a study reported in the journal Bone, 50 perimenopausal women with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 – which is considered overweight – were evaluated.

They measured:

  • Bone density
  • Visceral belly fat: fat around the abdominal organs
  • Subcutaneous fat: fat under the skin all over
  • Bone marrow fat: fat within the bone
  • Total fat

The study revealed that women with more belly fat had increased bone marrow fat and lowered bone density than women with fat elsewhere. For example, hip fat was not linked to bone density issues, and neither was subcutaneous fat (1).

So, this is another reason to take your health and fitness seriously.

To protect your bones, please consider a type of calcium support that makes sense. In nature, there is not a calcium tree or plant. Big animals with big bones get their calcium bundled with a flurry of other minerals all at the same time.

The best way to feed the body calcium is with a bio-available calcium and mineral complex. Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite Concentrate, or MCHC, is a complex of calcium phosphorus, organic factors and protein matrix, bone-derived growth factors, and a full spectrum of trace minerals that naturally constitute healthy bones.
