Is your caffeine consumption impacting

your bone density?

Caffeine and osteoporosis are linked. Just 2 cups of coffee a day will stop your body making use of the calcium within it for the benefit of your bones, muscles & nerves. Couple that with an increased need for Vitamin D and your genes are telling you how to avoid the risk of osteoporosis as found in your Bone Mineral Density report. 

Your DNA fitness reports will tell you if you have low levels of Vitamin D. If so, it will increase the amount of calcium in the body leading to other health issues. 

Osteoporosis diagnosis

Most people only find out if they have osteoporosis once they have broken a bone. After the age of 60, anyone finding themselves in a situation of a broken bone are automatically sent for a DEXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry,) scan. The only test which reveals your true bone density. But what if you could know way before 60 years of age of your risk of osteoporosis and you knew what to do to avoid it? 


A nourishing diet will reduce the risk of osteoporosis by more than 50%. Calcium is required for good bone health, eg 400mcg daily. Foods such as dark green leafy vegetables, almonds & sesame seeds are required for good bone density.

Vitamin D supports the absorption of calcium into the bones. Vitamin D and calcium reduce bone loss by 20-30%. Being in sunshine for 10-15 minutes a day will be sufficient time to achieve your daily dose of Vitamin D. 

Vitamins K and C (also known as ascorbic acid) work together to make collagen which avoids the weakening of bone structure. Foods such as peppers, strawberries, blackcurrants, broccoli, brussels sprouts, potatoes are all foods supporting your bone structure. (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vitamins-and-minerals/vitamin-c/)

DNA Reports

Your Bone Mineral Density Report is essential in informing you of your genes and your potential risk of reduced bone thickness. Prevention is better than cure, as they say. If your body requires additional vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, C, K and Calcium, it’s better to know earlier in life to prevent ill health at a later date.

Your Bone Mineral Density report is just one of six reports waiting for you to make informed choices about your future health. 

Brings a whole new meaning to eating for health.
