11 Aug. 2017 – Dr. Kasisin Klanklin , an orthopedic professor at the Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University said that Thais consume insufficient amounts of calcium. One study found that Thais consume only 360 milligrams of calcium per day while the body requires 800 milligrams per day. In 1 year, each person loses up to 1-2% of his or her bone mass, while people who lose bone mass quickly could lose up to 2-4% per year. The elderly are not the only group of people susceptible to osteoporosis because after the age of 20, bone density is quite stable before it starts losing its bone mass.
Dr. Kasisin added that statistics have shown that up to 16% of women between the age of 20 and 35 across the world have osteoporosis. As we age, our bones deteriorate, our spine shrinks, and our heart and lungs pushes down on our organs in our abdomen causing organs in the chest to not function properly, consequentially causing irregularities in the abdomen and groin where our reproductive organs are situated. Bones are also blood factories of humans, both red blood cells, which carries nutrients to every part of the body, white blood cells, which destroys germs or foreign antigens that enters the body, as well as lymph, which provides the body with immunity.
Dr. Kasisin said other factors of bone deterioration includes insufficient amount of calcium in the body. If our body does not have enough calcium, it will pull calcium out of our bones to maintain calcium equilibrium in the bloodstream to supply the heart, muscles, nerves, and other organs. This causes bone loss and inevitably osteoporosis. Risk behaviors such as regular consumption of alcohol, soft drinks, smoking, and thyroid medication are also key factors. Post-menopausal women and women who have had their ovaries removed are also at higher risk of osteoporosis.
Dr. Kasisin concluded that consuming sufficient amounts of calcium is crucial as it is an important mineral for the body which can be found in vegetables, fish, animal bones, and black sesame seeds. However, most people prefer calcium supplements to compensate for bone loss. However, this would only be effective if the calcium supplement is “good calcium” that the body can absorb, otherwise it may cause more harm than good. A study conducted by Isamu Kasima, top bone specialist in Japan found that the “Jullien’s Golden-Price Carp”, a Thai freshwater fish, once undergone the proprietary extraction to become the nano-molecule of Protetite which the body can readily absorb, store, and utilize it to increase bone mass and strengthen bones quickly, because its molecular structure resembles that of a human bone. Most importantly, there are no side effects. It is an innovation for health lovers and those at risk of bone disease.
