  • Increased sanitisation, hygiene, and cleaning protocols ( please sanitise on entry at one of our sanitiser stations )

We've been here before, we know how to handle this. Keep calm, be kind, and we will get through this together again. We're here to help.

 

Thank you and stay safe Waiuku!

Extended Information:

Q What is osteoporosis and how is it best prevented?

A Strong, healthy bones are essential for an active lifestyle; but without the right nutrients in the right amounts, bones can end up growing weaker and losing density. Over time, this can result in osteoporosis – a disease in which bones become porous and brittle, breaking more easily, and taking longer to heal if damaged. Osteoporosis is increasingly common, affecting as many as 1 in 2 NZ women and nearly 1 in 3 NZ men over 60. The best way to prevent it is to start building bone density as early possible, by ensuring sufficient calcium and Vitamin D intake, and regular weight bearing exercise to strengthen bones. After menopause, bone mass can decline quite significantly due to the lowered levels of oestrogen (bone-protective hormone).

Q What are the main risk factors for osteoporosis?

A Risk factors include being female (especially post menopausal or of small build), a family history of osteoporosis, advanced age, low calcium intake, low vitamin D levels, cigarette smoking, and excessive alcohol or coffee intake.

Q Why is it important to start building bone mass early?

A The body reaches its peak bone mass at around age 30, so it is important for both men and women to build as much bone mass as possible before this age. After this, the rate of bone loss begins to exceed that of bone building, which results in gradual net bone loss over time. Poor nutrition in early life (before this peak) can reduce the levels of bone mass at the peak, thus increasing the risk of developing osteoporosis later on in life.

 

Q What is the RDI for calcium?

A The Australian Department of Health and Aging Guidelines recommend the following daily calcium intake to maintain bone health:
 

AgeCalcium RDI (mg)Men19-701000mgMen71+1300mgWomen19-501000mgWomen51+1300mgPregnant & Breastfeeding14-181300mgPregnant & Breastfeeding19-501000mg


Q Why is calcium recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

A During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the calcium in a mother’s body helps to not only maintain her bone mass, but also build her baby’s skeleton and teeth. Unless she consumes adequate dietary calcium over this time, she may experience bone mass losses as calcium leaches from her bones to support her baby’s growth.
