    Hi, Kathleen! I, too, took a bunch of supplements as part of my bone-strengthening regimen. Now, in addition to regular exercise and sunshine, I take Juice Plus+ (Orchard Blend, Garden Blend, Vineyard Blend, and Juice Plus+ Complete Protein Shake), Garden of Life’s Vitamin Code RAW Multi for “50 & Wiser Women,” Vitality C powder from American Nutriceuticals. In addition, I take 5 tablets of Wobenzym N after an intense workout to prevent/eliminate inflammation that could cause sore muscles. You will notice that I don’t take a huge calcium supplement. That’s because the body prefers calcium from natural food sources, such as green, leafy vegetables, raw almonds, etc.

    Hi Kathleen,
    So nice to come upon your blog. I was JUST diagnosed with osteoporosis, after 20 years of serious strength training and eating what I’d considered to be a healthful diet (although high in protein) with lots of vegetables! I admit I didn’t regularly or carefully supplement with Calcium and, until I started seeing an alternative MD in 2009, my Vitamin D and DHEA levels were LOW. As were my sex hormones (I am now using bioHRT).

    I have worked hard to keep muscle on my frame (I competed as a bodybuilder at age 41; I’m approaching 56 now). So I’m concerned about losing muscle after reading about needing to decrease my protein intake. How nice, though, that you’ve lost excess pounds over the last few months of working with your new doctor. Do you have a post where you list your most valuable supplements? I take so many pills and would love to streamline, but not sure that I can!

    Thanks again for your nice blog. I look forward to future posts.
